Romancing The Smoke-Story about the Cover Art

A story in Rolling Stone tells of the time that Johnny Depp 
was staying in the basement of Hunter Thompson's place 
in Woody Creek, CO while preparing for his role as the writer 
in the film, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. 

As the actor pored over the script one night, chain-smoking 
as he worked, he struck a match and noticed, for the first time
 that his nightstand was, in fact, a keg of gunpowder.

Hunter said he always wondered where that powder keg had gone.

Johnny never smoked in the house again.
