"I was at a show in the Midwest. I was about to go on stage when someone said, 'Your wife just passed out backstage.' So I ran back and saw this heavyset woman on oxygen. Someone took her mask off and she says, 'Hi, honey.' This woman was not my wife, I looked at her and said, 'Who are you?' She thinks for a second and goes, 'I'm Amy Lee from Evanescence.' It's obviously not Amy Lee, but then her father came in, and she had convinced him she was Amy Lee. He said, 'Oh, she just came off tour.' I don't know how she did that, but I started playing along. When she got up, she said, 'Can I meet Johnny Depp?' I said, 'Maybe if you go to one of his shows in L.A.' Then she said, 'Doesn't he play guitar for you?' I said, 'Sometimes.' Then she got up and walked away with her father, and I had to go on stage that night knowing I wasn't the most bizarre person in the building. I sometimes wake up at three in the morning thinking, 'What was that?'"
