Anyone got anything to add to flesh this out a bit?

No, but when I read that article about Depp in Rolling Stone, the anecdote in question -- "But the things that were charming when he was 28 –- doing drugs and running around the scaffolding on a high floor of Atlantic Records' L.A. building –- seem disturbing at 55" -- made me wonder what Depp was doing in Atlantic's offices in 1991. I'd forgotten that he hung out with Dando during the recording of It's a Shame About Ray -- and, I guess, Come On Feel the Lemonheads. Which would mean he was actually 30 when he was running around (the exterior of) Atlantic's eighth floor with Dando in the fall of '93.

I can understand Evan being there although I don;t know what for exactly - I guess Depp was just hanging out with him that night.

How they got in the building after 6 PM is another story. If there was a security guard at the front desk, he must not have heard the rumbling eight floors above.

Evan was staying with Johnny that late summer. They would call me at 2 am my time to let me know that they hadn't burned up in the fires that were raging all around LA at the time. Even at 2 am ,I was very glad to hear the news of those two!
