The video for Hollywood Vampires’ “Heroes” cover is online.

As the new Hollywood Vampires album Rise‘s official release date (June 21) is coming closer, the band/its management released the video for their cover of David Bowie‘s song Heroes. What do you guys think? Johnny’s voice is just… wow. Do you agree?

New posters, promotional images and movie stills for The Professor have been released.

Edit: I intended to publish this post yesterday already along with the post about the personalized jacket by Sandersson for Johnny, but apparently it wasn’t published.

Well, as the title reveals, new posters, movie stills and promotional images for Johnny’s upcoming movie The Professor have been released, which can be found in our photo gallery, of course. The poster is the one for the Netherlands, that’y why it still contains the former movie title Richard Says Goodbye, which was changed to The Professor in the United States.

Hollywood Vampire’s second studio album will be released on June 21, 2019.

It’s official: Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and Alice Cooper will return on June 21 this year with their second album as Hollywood Vampires. The album is called Rise and will be a 16-track effort from the group, containing mostly original material written by the band itself. The album can be pre-saved here.

There are three covers included, however, as tributes to rock stars we lost too soon, including a version of David Bowie‘s “Heroes” (performed by Johnny), Jim Carroll Band‘s “People Who Died” and Johnny Thunders‘ “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory” (sung by Joe). Other tracks on the album include “I Want My Now,” “The Boogieman Surprise,” “We Gotta Rise” and “Mr. Spider.”

“Rise is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of,” says Cooper in a statement. “I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album. Each of us; Joe, Johnny, Tommy, and myself have written songs on this album. What is different though is that I didn’t try to change any songs to be more ‘Alice-like.’ Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album, we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock ‘n’ roll brothers.”

Perry adds that the album came from “pure creative energy” akin to the band’s live performances. “The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders,” he says. “There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of. I can’t wait to perform some of these tunes live for our fans.”

Track list:
“I Want My Now”
“Good People Are Hard to Find”
“Who’s Laughing Now”
“How the Glass Fell”
“The Boogieman Surprise”
“Welcome to Bushwackers” (feat. Jeff Beck + John Waters)
“The Wrong Bandage”
“You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory”
“Git From Round Me”
“Heroes”
“A Pitiful Beauty”
“New Threat”
“Mr. Spider”
“We Gotta Rise”
“People Who Died”
“Congratulations”

Rest in peace, Jerry Judge, Johnny’s bodyguard and friend for 20 years.

We on Johnny Depp Network would like to express our sincerest condolences to Johnny and Mr. Jerry Judge’s family and friends. Today, April 06, 2019 one of Johnny’s close friends and his bodyguard for 20 years, Jerry Judge, has passed away. He was known as the “Life Angel” and was spotted on the red carpet, on movie sets, on tour alongside Johnny and even inspired his own fan page.

He also guarded Paul McCartney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Antonio Banderas and Julia Roberts. Apart from being on Johnny’s side to ensure his security, he had cameos in several of Johnny’s films including “Sweeney Todd“. He was not only known as Johnny’s bodyguard and security, but mostly a friend and a helping hand on Johnny’s side. THANKS for everything you’ve done for him. We know you’re in a peaceful place now and taken great care of in heaven. Rest in peace, dear Jerry!.

Johnny was spotted in Lacock, Wiltshire, England for Fantastic Beasts 3.

Apparently, the production of Fantastic Beasts 3 has begun. As the title already says, Johnny was spotted in Lacock, Wiltshire in England to reprise his role as Gellert Grindelwald in the third Fantastic Beasts installment.

Fantastic Beasts 3 is scheduled for release in November 2020, continuing the pattern of the first film (November 2016) and its sequel (November 2018) but nothing has been confirmed yet. There are two more sequels to come, which means 5 Fantastic Beasts movies in total. We don’t know yet whether Johnny will appear as Grindelwald in the fourth and fifth movie though.

As the headline says, I marked this post as a rumor since it has NOT been confirmed whether Johnny’s stay in Lacock is connected to the start of production of Fantastic Beasts 3 or whether he was really seen at all. The news website reporting his appearances is Wiltshire Times.
