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

Time Keeps On Slipping

Dammit, Bobby: did you use the Time Sheath to hire Richard Avedon to take your picture?


“Yeah, a little.”

C’mon, man.

“Look how dramatic I look, though.”

Knock it off.


  1. People don’t think that Steve Miller was a philosopher, but he was right about time.

    Good one about Richard Avedon. Everyone who bought Heaven Help The Fool at Tower Records the day it was released, raise your hand.

    What, just me?

      Wait, Avedon really did shoot the cover? Someone just said something about it on Twitter. I had absolutely no idea. (But this lends credence to your belief that Bobby and the record company were trying reeeeeeeeally hard to make him a solo star. Avedon must have been expensive.)

  2. Yep, Avedon most certainly did. I reckon the guitar shares the billing with Bob on that cover. I think it is a 1930s Martin OM-45, and if so, that is a very expensive guitar.
