One more note - you can click on the photos to see more detail. Check out the Molly Ringwald guitar. Can anyone tell me who that is playing?

Ben said...

That's Doug Carrion, no?

Jim H said...

You are correct, Sir! Playing in Dag Nasty meant you wore Dag Nasty shorts.

Riiiight. Because if you're in a band called Dag Nasty, you should be wearing Dag Nasty shorts (although The Smiths t-shirt is a nice touch).
