I always think Jim looks very “menswear catalogue” in this photo – COOL MENSWEAR – like a GQ magazine shoot or some such. When he wore cool clothes (thankfully, he’s *mostly* wearing cool clothes again!).
Derek, on the other hand, looks a bit “WTF? I ain’t even ready, ken!” Lol
So, two days ago, I bought a signed copy of the New Gold Dream tour programme off eBay for £40.00! (Yes, I know!) I didn’t even really WANT a *signed* copy (though knowing Jim, Charlie and Derek have touched it feels a bit nice), I just wanted *a* copy.
I’ve been waiting MONTHS for one to surface, so when this copy appeared on eBay, I *had* to buy it! Thankfully no one else placed a bid and I got it for the listed price of £40.00 (if I’d have had to pay any more, I’d have died!).
Pretty much the sole reason for my purchase was for a clean copy of this photo. I first saw it as a still on a collage of photos on a YouTube clip (the David “Kid” Jensen radio session of Hunter and the Hunted, if memory serves). I then *trawled* Google image search for a clean copy. There are only a couple of examples of it about…and they are all quite small, and badly scanned.
So, anyway…long story short. I paid £40.00 for a clean copy of this photo in a tour programme. I will try and get an even cleaner copy up soon, but for now, this is better than what’s been up on the web previously.
