    Default HELP us identify this rockstar, PLEASE

    Greetings from Sweden! Coachella is my favorite festival by far and I know that you guys on this board are smart and absolutely brilliant persons and now we need some help. Ben Sherman has issued a t-shirt with prints of "Great British Icons", I'm sure you've seen it. Anyway, we have identified all but one and now we're stuck. So if you guys could take the time to check out this link

    http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/4852/picture1638.jpg

    and return with an answer to this mysterious question, we will be forever grateful! WHO IS THIS GUY??!!!

    Thanks, and see you all in 2010/yellow_boxfish and my fellow boarders at flashback.info

    We will, tomorrow when they're open for business again. Makes no sense e-mailing on the weekend. We've been discussing this on my board since yesterday evening and no one has the answer. Itīs one of the biggest boards in Sweden with some 300 000 members so it's quite remarkable really. SOMEONE here must recognize this guy, I'm sure.

    Syd Barrett (Pink Floyd), Mike Skinner (The Streets), Sid Vicous (Sex Pistols), Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream)[Some say Keith Moon, The Who].
    Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols), Damon Albarn (Blur), Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Ian Curtis (Joy Division).
    David Bowie, ???, Pete Doherty (The Libertines), Noel Gallagher (Oasis).
    Joe Strummer (The Clash), Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), George Harrison (The Beatles), Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath).

    These are the rest of them (we think), if it helps.

    I can't tell who it is, geez, it almost looks like a really lousy replica of an old McCartney photo when he was really young.

    Edit.

    This is the photo it reminded me of...not the exact photo but close...

    And why George? Not saying he shouldn't be there, but why was he specifically picked over Paul, John, and Ringo.

    Yes, this is a valid guess I think. It was suggested on my board aswell. But we're not 100% on it. Anyhow, he deserves to be there.

    One of my fellow boarders doesn't agree on this theory, because of the hair. I'd say it's quite close.

    Does everyone agree on the Paul Weller theory? Case closed? Or are there any other suggestions maybe? Thanks again, by the way. You've been helpful, all of you!

    He's a legend. The Modfather.

    Well, mr Weller IS the Modfather and Ben Sherman is a mod fashion icon so it all definitely makes sense. But if anyone has any other suggestion we are all ears?

    I will send an e-mail to Ben Sherman sales office in Sweden, I will post their reply here asap.

    Aha! A suggestion we haven't heard before, and not a bad one either, I must say.

    I can't take the credit. I'm a big Weller fan, but it was my wife who got it.

    Well, lots of hugs and kisses and praise to your beautiful and obviously intelligent wife from all of us then! :-) She sounds like a keeper ;-) Weller jumping in the pic screwed up his hair, that's why we didn't really agree on the theory first.

    And mr Weller sure deserves his spot on that shirt!
