Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Handing Out Free Tickets…

The great Jesse Jarnow, whose wonderful book Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America can be purchased wherever books are sold (which means Amazon or the airport, I guess) sent in this pic of Sam Cutler and Bear. I believe it is from a wedding, though I have no proof. Allow me to enumerate my observations which add up to my belief:

ONE: Sam Cutler’s outfit. When an Englishman has a wedding to go to, he wakes up in that outfit. It doesn’t matter if he doesn’t own those clothes: on the day of the wedding, he will emerge from beneath the bedding dressed like that. It’s just biology.

TWO: Bear’s outfit. When the World’s Most Famous Drug Dealer™ has a wedding to go to, that’s the kind of bullshit he throws on.

THREE: Beer’s outfit. Pretty sure that’s a custom “happy couple” beer cozy.

ERGO (or ipso facto, whichever one is correct here): Wedding.



  1. Bear looks like he was about at the end. Dude looks like he’s 85.

  2. My guess is the Beer Cozy is Steve Parrish…could be HIS wedding.

    His wife was killed in a car accident during the NYE run in December 84.

    This could be from Steve’s later wedding. COULD be from the earlier one (Cutler’s suit says post 84 to me, though).

    I dunno.
