I'm going to post this here and also in the Hollywood Vampires thread.

There's a sweet photo and an article here: http://metrovaartha.com/en/2016/07/13/john...before-concert/

Thanks to Cathy on Deppography for sharing this update there, where she shares the sad news that the young woman passed away within the last couple of weeks.

Here's the link to the entire interview: http://musicjunkiepress.com/entertainment-...kings-and-more/


And here's a tiny excerpt from an interview with Alice Cooper when he mentions the girl who was dying, and yet was able to attend one of the HV concerts earlier this summer. Her pic with Johnny, Alice and Joe was all over the net.

Such a kind man, that Johnny Depp.

QUOTE


Alice: I go right back. We started in April. I was out with my band, and then I went with the Vampires for two weeks, then I went with my band for another three weeks. Now Ive got the Vampires for a month and then I go back out with my band for two months.

MJP: Wow! Now do you do the VIP experiences at your shows as well?

Alice: Yeah, we do it after the show. With the Vampires, we do it before the show.

MJP: Great, because people love that. It is such a great experience for them. It is great to see that you will be doing it as well on your shows.

Alice: Well, you know, the nice thing about it, and this is something that people should know about Johnny. One night we had 60 people and one of the girls had brain cancer. They brought her in on a stretcher. Johnny, myself and Joe. Johnny spent an hour with her, just whispering in her ear, and her talking, she could barely talk. We were almost late for the show. He wouldnt leave. And we finally got back on stage and did it. And after the show, he spent another half hour with her.

MJP: God bless you guys.

Alice: That is just really, I mean, that told me something about him.

So sad, but nice that she was able to meet Johnny. And Alice said it all:


Alice: That is just really, I mean, that told me something about him.

I agree Alice, I agree....

Cross posting, Johnny's fulfilled a wish with the Make a Film Foundation, for a young man to make a movie, it's zombie based tongue.gif and has a boat load of kind people in the film industry helping out, including Johnny!

This is part of a Facebook comment defending him against some hate towards his PCA win/speech:
QUOTE
I met Johnny July 12 this year and I can tell you he's very humble and very shy. He cares a great deal about his fans. I have personal experience from this. I told Johnny about how I had collected pretty much anything that had his face on it but two weeks prior to meeting him my basement flooded and I lost it all, but that meeting him made up for all of it because how many people gets to meet their idol? Johnny Depp made my night that day by sending his personal body guard over to me at the end of the concert to hand deliver me his last guitar pick. Did he have to do that? Absolutely not! But it melted my heart that he made sure I got something from him. How many people can say that? Say what you want about him but THE FANS, the people that mean the most to him know the truth and we know how humble he is.

During the interview, Depp kept returning to a "deep" passage by American playwright and novelist William Saroyan that, he said, encapsulated the values he hopes to pass on to his daughter. He became frustrated at his inability to quote it verbatim and promised to fax me a copy. I dismissed this as professional friendliness and didn't believe him.

When I returned to the office, there it was, with an accompanying note: "Here's the Saroyan piece that I butchered for you today. Hope you like it, it is everything to me." It was a genuine, human gesture from a young man with an obviously good heart. The passage itself is one of those Desiderata-style invocations that one makes one's motto before circumstance shakes the innocence out of you.
