Flowered Up it is. Barry Mooncult is the one not playing along, but perhaps living up to his name

JRN's photo was already top notch before I knew that it was Limp Bizkit, now that I know, well.

otm, moss is culture club's charlie watts in that regard

difficult-difficult lemon-difficult (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 22 June 2015 22:48 (three years ago) Permalink

It's rare for old-ish groups not to look awkard/weird/sad in pics, but that Culture Club one is great. As soref points out, the Jon Moss scowl is eternal, and the others look completely alive.

The New Order one is typical: stiff, lifeless blokes in shades (only Gillian looking awake).

Is that a new-new CC photo? George looks great

In that Grateful Dead cover, maybe that one dude is the workingman?

Tuomas, Wednesday, 5 October 2016 06:22 (one year ago) Permalink

According to this post, the guy sitting down in the Dead album cover photo is Bill Kreutzmann.

...they were bitching and griping about having to stand out in the street looking like that, getting their picture taken. That's why it came out so well! Billy got so pissed off he just went back and sat in a doorway. We were at a bus stop and he was actually going to get on the next bus!

every single picture of Sumerland seems to conform to this model of "we're all wearing black jeans and band t-shirts except the one guy who isn't (who may or may not be our dad)(he also has keys hanging from his belt)"

Who's not playing along in the Wilburys?

dinnerboat, Monday, 6 February 2017 22:33 (one year ago) Permalink

I see two alternative options:

* The guy on the lower right refused to wear a white shirt.
* The guy on the upper right didn't want to dye his hair black.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 7 February 2017 10:41 (one year ago) Permalink

Though TBH it looks like the middle guy and the guy on the upper left are the only ones who're really playing along: they look pretty much identical, right down to the hairstyle and beard. The left guy's shades are the only distinguishing feature.
