Thank you so much, ITD, for posting these.
I especially love the brief video starting the thread. Johnny seems very happy, calm and just enjoying the interactions - not the usual frenzied signing pace. Wonder what is “possible”, his comment at the end . . .

Article with praise for Johnny - - and description of the other musicians performing
This was after a crowd-pleasing headlining set by the Vampires, featuring Cooper and Johnny Depp, who commands the stage with the presence you'd expect from looking at him while bringing more than swagger to the table on guitar.
If you're looking for flash, he's no Strauss (or Varela). But he's great at the kind of guitar he plays, which is more in the Chuck-Berry-filtered-through-Dave-Davies blues-punk tradition.
