Whichever, I think he has them like that so they don't foul on the guitar.

Picking up on a comment about 900 pages back. Just wondering if you still have them all.                                                                                                                                                       Yes M.O.M. I have the photos on a Laptop which is out of Juice and Needs to go to the shop but,they are there.I noticed a few Pics on the Thread have disappeared.Not sure why.           As for the "Hipster" bizness some time back.Sorry but I have been getting "Bashed" by the Squares for being a Hipster.It's very frustrating.I'm sure some of the younger skinheads can understand as you've been judged unfairly and Inaccurately. Here is a brief explanation of what is a real Hipster(for those who care)  1975-1978 Punk Rock 1978-1981 Post Punk 1981- Today Hipster.  The name Hipster came from one of the NY City Rags(about 2001) and was used as a Derogatory term(like Beatnik,Hippie,Skinhead,Punk) In 1981 there were several Independent records released which heralded the "New" When I was touring in 1984 and we were in the "Sticks" people asked us what we were(cause we looked strange) initially we said "Post Punk" and the "Squares" would respond with"Punk? oh no we can't be having that" so we started saying "College Rock" which wasn't understood either so we started calling ourselves" Alternative'' (this is 1985) Unfortunately the Grunge thing happened and they were called "Alternative" so we started using the Term "Indie". Hipster was a VERY broad genre (music and fashion wise) but all unified in it's Punk,post Punk influence.Just check out The Gun Club "Fire Of Love" Released in 1981 and a good example of  a Traditional music form(in this case Folk/Slide Blues) Mixed with Punk.Today's Hipsters are as much an embarrassment to me as the Skinheads of today are to the Originals.Get back to me M.O.M. if you need those Pics.I would be Chuffed to have helped the book in some way.

Anyone guess the year for this?  Love the mix of styles that you just didn't seem to get second time around.  The blond guy looks like Ace Kefford of the Move:                                                                 This IS "The Move"moveex.jpgGonna say1967(Ace left early on.Acid casualty)

What a classic...looks like a 'later' 'skinhead period' time when they are just about ready to go glam - or maybe they just got sick of wearing braces on the outside of everything?  Lead singer Noddy reminds me of the singer in Oi band Evil Conduct.

I think I have many of them myself, maybe not all. But I will certainly need help identifying some (copyright holders?) and maybe filling in the gaps. There are so many we won't be able to use, for various reasons.

Like I said before.I would use the pics and worry about the copyright holder suing later.If there is no Profit from the book then there is no copyright violation.I would not exclude a great photo cause you can't find the Owner.

Not strictly true, but I know what you mean.

A profit would be nice - we'll be trying for commercial publication.

I simply can't figure out what is going on there. I even tried to recreate the look with one of my Baracutas , to no avail . A strange one indeed. .but your guitar theory could well be case. .

Peeping the photo again, it looks as though Clapton might have reversed the cuffs inwards so they're gripping the 'meat' of his forearms near the elbows in reverse. Alluding to above, it is most likely to keep the billowing sleeves away from the strings of his git-fiddle-- especially on his right forearm. Many guitarists wear wristbands on their picking hands to similar effect.

I am no expert but I have my doubts about it being a Baracutta.No pocket flaps visible (could be tucked in?) ,Hard to see if there is buttons on the pockets?There were tons of this Golfing style jacket made by the likes of Pennys,Sears,McGregor,Golden Bear,Private Label,etc.etc.Seemingly this was a shot from a 1964 RSG episode.
