“Another picture from my night at Johnny’s house… He’s such a warm and down to earth person. JD has an encyclopedic knowledge of all of my favorite literary obsessions  – I’m proud to call him my new friend. History will be kind to this man, his artistry and influence is unmatched – and he’s just a super cool bohemian pirate.”  Wrote Ryan Leone, writer and producer, on his Instagram about spending 12 hours chatting with Johnny last August 11.

“Had a wonderful time at Johnny’s house last weekend – first time I’ve met him. Such a cool person and unique artist. We spent hours discussing Hunter S. Thomson . Johnny read me some hand-written letters from The Good Doc and gave me Hunter’s infamous cigarette holder… I’m honored. The torch of Gonzo… what a magical experience!!!” – Wrote Ryan Leone, writer and producer, on his Instagram.

Ps. Johnny seems to be wearing a t-shirt from the Scottish alternative rock band “The Jesus and Mary Chain”.

“Met these 3 lads in North London the other night. Had great craic* talking about Seán Ó Riada.” – wrote Michael Cronin sharing a photo on Instagram with  Johnny, Shane McGowan and  Jonathon Cronin 

(Who forms with Michael the Irish band “Cronin”) at the 

Boogaloo Pub, located on the north of London.

Ps:*Craic is an Irish slang for enjoyable/fun conversation mixed with alcohol and/or music.

Ps 2: Now we know that Johnny was still in London with Shane and Victoria and not in Ireland and the photo seems to have been taken last night. Also, Johnny is about to complete one month there…

“With friends like these life can still get rough and times can feel hard and you still feel knackered and know you should get some sleep but somehow despite everything there is the joy of love and that makes everything better.” – Victoria Clark (July 20/2019)

Two recent photos of Johnny from what it
seems to have been taken yesterday (July 19). The first is from Maxim Cassir
tagged in London. Maxim is a

wine and other drinks

educator for the WSET and said
that Johnny was simple and kind when they met and that he loves Moscow Mule (a cocktail made
with vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge
of lime)
.

The second photo was posted by Victoria Clarke with Johnny and Brendan
Fitzpatrick (who provides transport for Shane and bands throughout Europe) on
her Instagram where she wrote the quote above.

It’s
unknown if Johnny is in Ireland or London right now preparing for something new or just enjoying some vacations, but up until now he have been in London for at least 27 days. 

“He was a really lovely guy, the nicest guy in the world and just like any other guests really laughing and joking, they didn’t demand any special attention.” – Told Jeffrey Ali, proprietor of the restaurant Le Raj, about Johnny.

Last July 10/11, Johnny had a dinner with Ian Hunter at the Le Raj Restaurant

a Indian restaurant in Epson, a city located one hour by car on the south-west of London.

It was revealed by Surrey Comet online that the staff at the restaurant were only made aware of his visit moments before his arrival.  The Le Raj’s Proprietor Jeffrey Ali told: “It was a bit of a surprise!" 

"They made sure the security and everything was ‘hunky-dory’* and then when they told me it was Johnny Depp I thought I’d misheard”

“Hunky-dory” is a

expression

for quite satisfactory, fine, very good, all right.

Jeffrey also revealed the menu and about their surprise in having Johnny in their restaurant

“We had some onion Bhajis and extra bits and pieces prepared for them so they could take it on their plane*. I think the onion Bhajis were their favourites of everything we did.“ 

"We’re quite chuffed to be honest with someone who doesn’t live anywhere near us especially. Honestly he’s the nicest chap*, really respectful to everyone and he went in the kitchen, saying hi to the staff and going out of his way to say thank you to everyone.”

> “Chap” is a expression for “man, guy, gentleman”. 

This is our Johnny. No matter who you are, where you came from, your status, he will always treat you kindly. 

Such a gentleman! 

Ps. Jeffrey says they prepared some food for them to “take it on their plane”, so is Johnny back to California?

“Last night Le Raj Restaurant Epsom Surrey was host Johnny Depp  and he said “The best Indian Cuisine I’ve ever had!”  As said by the gracious Hollywood movie star.Wrote Enan Ali, Founder of Le Raj. 

PS. The photo was taken two days ago, last July 10 in a Indian restaurant in Epson, a city located one hour by car on the

south-west of London.
This can be considered an important information because raise some questions… It’s unknown if Johnny is in London for work, maybe getting ready for some new movie (maybe even the upcoming movie scheduled to January 2020), or just enjoying his free time in a vacation. He was first seen in London, last June 23, so if he is still there today, it completes at least 20 days he is in England…
Well, whatever comes next, we are pretty curious…

London nights with friends…

Johnny was yesterday (June 26) with Jeff Beck, Slim Jim Phantom, Jennie Vee and friends at the Eventim Apollo in London for the

Brian Setzer’s Stray Cats: 40th Anniversary gig.

Cheers!

Yesterday was also Jeff Beck’s birthday, so maybe it was his party…

Breakfast
Johnny is still in France with his friends Victoria Mary Clarke and Shane MacGowan in France.

Funny curiosity: if that smartphone on the corner of the table is his, it seems that Johnny is quite clumsy just like most of us. The screen seems cracked and is also missing a part on the bottom… 

😂

😂 My smartphone is on the same situation.
