JD Shirt: Not Meant For Tucking
OK, here's hoping this photo remains a mystery for more than 5 minutes.
What will forever remain a mystery, however, is why the dude in the middle, who is clearly the singer, decided to tuck that Jack Daniels shirt nice and snug into his high-waisted, slashed-up Levi's. And what's with the sport jacket with the rolled-up sleeves? The other sad-sacks (guess the photog didn't tell them to say "cheese") he's surrounded by at least had the good sense to sport some dead animal hide.
Anyway, if I had to guess, I'd say these boys are from the South and they probably were one of the many Maiden/Priest imitators of the day.
Update: So, yeah, I was waaaaaaay off with this one. "GJ," however, was not fooled at all. This is Swedish doom band Sorcerer. And according to BNR Metal Pages: "Sorcerer played classic Euro doom, in the style of early Candlemass." I got this photo with the demo they sent me in ’89. I'm pretty sure I recorded over that demo. Not sure if I ever even listened to it. But, c'mon, one look at that picture...
