Hollywood stars Johnny Depp and John Cusack joined friends and family of the late author Hunter S Thompson at a private memorial party Saturday (05MAR05).

The FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS scribe shot himself in the head at his secure compound in Woody Creek, Colorado, last month (20FEB05).

In keeping with Thompson's wishes, only friend and family were invited to the memorial celebration of the Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado.

Depp and Cusack both appeared alongside Thompson in a 2003 documentary on his life, entitled BREAKFAST WITH HUNTER.

Depp also played Thompson in the 1998 cult film adaptation of Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.
