Sounds Of The Harlem Globetrotters

Fred Dellar, Rock's Backpages, 3 March 2009

JOHNNY DEPP WAS once asked if, in his early days, he really wanted to be a Harlem Globetrotter. "It's absolutely true," he mused "I went through various stages in my childhood as we all do. I would spin the ball on my finger and I would make it go through my arms and I would dribble with it close to the ground like Curly Neal used to do. I went through that stage. I wanted to be the first white Globetrotter."
