HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE “KING OF BAD TASTE”, THE “POP OF TRASH” JOHN WATERS!!!
Today, April 22, John turns 73 years old!
“ – Halfway through writing it, I thought, ‘Oh God, who’s gonna play this?’ I went and bought all the teen magazines and saw him and thought he’d be perfect for it. So I called him and said ‘I have this movie about a juvenile delinquent whose father got the electric chair’ – I didn’t try to make it sound normal – And he really laughed; he liked my old stuff, too. I just wanted to make sure he had a sense of humor. He did this one little sneer in our first meeting which summed it all up, and I knew that, hey, Johnny Depp is Cry-Baby. – John Waters talks about Johnny Depp and Cry-Baby for the “
LA Times” in 1990.
“ -…however, if I were homosexual, I’m sure I
could fall in love with John Waters in a half a second, because he is of the
funniest, most charming, intelligent people that I’ve ever known. He’s really a
prime catch.” – Johnny Depp talks about John Waters, for the “The Advocate”, Nov. 1,1994
PS. And don’t forget! John Waters, along with Jeff Beck, will be featuring on the sixth track
“Welcome to Bushwackers” on the upcoming album “Rise”!!!
