"Mr. Stench" (self-chosen)
"Colonel" (given to him by Hunter S. Thompson)
Has twice recorded with British band Oasis. Most notably, he plays lead slide guitar on the track "Fade In-Out", from the 1997 album Be Here Now. Noel Gallagher, Oasis’s lead guitarist, was allegedly too drunk to perform it himself, so celebrity pal Depp stepped in and nailed the lead on one take. (IMDB)
With Chuck E. Weiss, Depp paid a reported USD$350,000 for the Central Nightclub in Los Angeles, California, and turned it into the Viper Room. Other stars in contention to buy the club in 1993 included Arnold Schwarzenegger and, separately, Frank Stallone. (IMDB)
In 1993, actor River Phoenix died outside of the Viper Room, to drug overdose.
Apparently as of 2004, Johnny Depp is no longer an owner of the Viper Room, he signed it over to Amanda Fox. (no relation to the busty singing star Samantha Fox)
