Gritty is right

It's so perfect that I almost can't believe Johnny never used this photo as an album cover. Maybe he and his producers weren't even aware of it?

I've never understood

why someone who "shot a man in Reno" would be doing time in a California state prison.

In black and white.

"I hear that train a coming...."

Great pic, Dave.

Gritty

This would have made an excellent album cover.

Hard life

John looks old beyond his years considering he was in his mid thirties. Great Pic!
