Little ‘Shop of Bob Weir

Enthusiasts, I have no earthly idea why someone is Photoshopping Bobby into pictures with a Les Paul. Are there financial stakes underlying these photos’ creation? Sexual urges? (If the only thing that gives you boners is “Bobby with a Les Paul,” then maybe you’re just not meant to have boners.)

There are no obvious tells in the digital manipulation of the shot, but Bobby’s head has been pasted onto someone else’s body. Look carefully at Bobby’s face: that’s his expression from Bobby Picture Pose #2. Bobby only makes that face during BPP2, and during BPP2, Bobby puts his fist to his chin. Ipsy-daisy factotum: FAKE.

    Weir has just been nominated as first recipient of the inaugural Les Paul Spirit award for innovation by the Les Paul Foundation. Presumably this is his way of saying thanks.

    I see that your Without Research TM approach uncovered the Les Paul Spirit gong two days ago.

    I wonder what Les Paul thought of the GD, if at all.

    Someone , maybe the great Jeff Silberman, really took it to the next level with this one.
