Johnny Depp is not Syd Barrett Petition sign now

Okay. I just recently read the news that teenage-obsession, Johnny Depp, would like to play the role of Syd Barrett, original front man for Pink Floyd, in an upcoming documentary. This is a mockery to good old rock-'n'-roll. An over-publicized celebrity playing the part of a rockstar whose music has become a tad bit acquired taste--doesn't mix well.

Please. This is not a proposal to get Johnny Depp out of work. Who wants any teenyboppers going around getting interested in LSD, because the person who he potrayed in the film was unfortunately addicted? Exactly. Think about the children.

Here is some information about the two subjects of this petition. Please tell me you don't think it is...just right that Syd Barrett be played by such a person.

Syd Barrett:

"Roger Keith Barrett (born January 6, 1946 in Cambridge, England), known as Syd Barrett, was one of the founding members of the psychedelic (later progressive rock) group Pink Floyd.

Although his activity in pop music was short, his influence on 1960s artists (and those of successive generations), especially Pink Floyd, has been profound. Through his acoustic solo albums, he is cited as the first psych folk artist by many."-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syd_Barrett

Johnny Depp:

"He first gained widespread notice in 1987, in the TV police drama 21 Jump Street, and then in a number of movies, where he distinguished himself as an acclaimed lead actor who is known for his quirky roles, beginning with Edward Scissorhands and "Cry-Baby" in 1990. He is able to play a wide variety of roles, from comedy (The Curse of the Black Pearl) to serious drama (Donnie Brasco), to action (Once Upon a Time in Mexico), and atmospheric thrillers (From Hell). Depp also directed and starred in The Brave, demonstrating his sympathy for the plight of Native Americans. Depp is one quarter Cherokee.

Depp is also noted for his regular appearances in the films of director Tim Burton; they have made five films together to date: Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride.

During Depp's career, he has gotten into some trouble. His first arrest was in Vancouver for a late night altercation in a hotel lobby. He was accused of selling drugs at his club The Viper Room, after actor River Phoenix died in front of the club from a drug overdose in 1993. In 1994, Depp was arrested for allegedly causing serious damage to a New York hotel suite. He was later arrested in 1999 for getting into a fight with paparazzi outside a restaurant while dining in London with his girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis."-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Depp
