    Default Rolling Stone Photo Question

    This is nothing major, but I was wanting to get your opinion on the following photograph:

    http://www.vhnd.com/wp-content/uploa.../02/vh2007.jpg

    When the rumors/confirmation came around that Roth was back and they were about to tour, and Wolf was in the band, this was, I think, the first photo released of them as a band (you can still sort of tell this was BEFORE ed seemingly turned it around [i.e. got his hair cut, put on weight, etc.]). I remember seeing Wolfie in the photo and thinking to myself that he looked like a good-looking kid... kind of looks like he's confident.

    Well then I saw their press conference announcing their tour and, in my opinion, he looks totally different! So what was the deal? Did you loose weight? Was that photo-shopped picture, or what?

    Just wondering; I know this is nothing earth shattering.

    Thanks!
    If it sounds like bull shit, feels like bull shit, and appears to be bull shit, it's probably Eddie talking about his new lead singer being his new brother at a press conference...

    I meant to say, "did he gain weight,"... not "did you loose weight." DURRR... Crack-moment.

    Being a graphic designer, I can say with almost 100% certainty that that photo is almost completely created in photoshop. Wolfgang was totally slimmed down, and I am almost (but not totally) positive that Dave wasn't in the room with them. The light coming off of him just seems slightly different that the other guys.

    That pic IS weird. Somethings just not right about it.

    Ed looks wasted...seriously, look at his eyes and grin. Al looks like a wax dummy (as usual) Dave has a sort of "is this really happening" look on his face... as he chomps @ the bit on his frames. Wolfie looks like he has a TON of makeup on, a stick up his wazoo and a courset(sp?) sinched up nice and tight around his waist.

    You aren't alone in regarding that picture of Wolf. The pic made him look older I thought.

    i'm glad i'm not the only one. wolf likes cool as hell in that picture. he looked to me a lot like robert gallery of the raiders (huge offensive lineman). when i saw that pic, dave and wolf looked the best to me. he looked completely different on tour. the only other thing is that i saved a pic i found somewhere with ed, janie, wolf and maybe one other person at some car race track event. wolf looked cool, in shape there as well. i'll try to post it now, but if i mess it up - it wasn't photo shopped. i'm not sure where he went from looking good to a little heavier, etc...

    Wolf's contract called for him to put on weight so no one would notice that the other three had aged over the prior 25 years.

    wolfgangs hair was much shorter during the tour and most other photo's. I think maybe ed and al were taken together and the other 2 are photoshoped

    Being in the field I too think that illustrious program developed by the fine folks over at Adobe was used.

    What was the original reason for producing that photo? Were they going to be on the cover until they postponed the tour and Ed went to rehab, missing the entire Rock Hall induction? And I've never seen a hi-res version, only that very small, low-res one.
