Howdy, Tex.

Although I’d love to go back in time and snatch the smoke right out of his mouth, this is an incredibly awesome pic. But, as much as I wish he and many of our other friends, relatives and beloved entertainers could have been warned, and saved themselves from the dangers of smoking, I do NOT believe in photoshopping cigarettes out of old pictures. They smoked. Gotta deal with it.

I have a slight suspicion this photo is backwards. I may change it later when I have a chance.

    It does appear to be backwards. That appears to be a guitar he’s holding, and the neck is on the wrong side.

    By the way, I know what you mean about the cigarettes. Every time I see early pictures of him with a cigarette I just wish I could shout at him, “George, stop it! Those are going to kill you way too young!” To his credit, he did stop smoking long before he died, but the damage was already done. 😦

    despite the fact that our beloved George has a cigarette in his mouth, he still looks 100% cute 😉

    Looks like he should’ve been in The Outiders in this pic.
