Not being a car guy, I'm totally out of my depth on this one, monbla. The guy is obviously Italiano, but that's no help; there are currently 4,277 drivers from Italy listed at Driver Database. You can put what I know about Italian racers in one hand (Mario Andretti), and crap in the other, and all you'll have is Mario Andretti and one handful of crap.

I'm guessing that's not Andrettii, so I'm stumped. confused

Right-O buckshot. His old man was said to smoke St. Bruno and nothing else. Unlike his son who smoked just about everything else. LOL.

The younger bloke looks a lot like a younger and cleaner Keith Richards.

Your clue "The Old Man" and the abundant face fuzz on the senior dude first led me to think Ernest Hemingway. But the timing is all wrong; the famed author of The Old Man and the Sea terminated his own existence in 1961, and I don't believe that Keith looked anything like that in 1961. Besides, Hemingway had most of his hair...well, that is, before he removed it at the end, with his application of what I now call "the Hemingway maneuver".

Anyhow, I can only guess that the older bloke is Keith's dad.

Update: Oh, wait...looks like Buckshot already nailed it. cheers

Keith was definitely a guitar hero of mine back in the days of the early Strollin' Bones — right up through the Between the Buttons album...which also happened to mark the demise of Brian Jones. The Stones lost something they were never able to recapture after that, IMHO. Jones was a freak, but his eclectic musical tastes went a long way toward making the Stones much more than the plain old rock band they became after his demise.

When I saw them live at the Syracuse War Memorial auditorium in summer, 1966 Brian Jones was still extant. His playing was by far the most musically interesting of all the band members. Keith was moody, playing sloppily, probably stoned...acting like he didn't want to be there. In fact, they stunk. My band was better than they were. It was a huge revelation for me about the difference between bands that sound great in the studio but don't cut it live. No

On a related note.

As an aside to this thread - and Mick's eyes got me thinking - I've always loved Marty Feldman. From his days in Monty Python with John Cleese and Rowan Atkinson all the way to Young Frankenstein, but I never knew how he died. Now I do.

From Wiki:

Feldman died from a heart attack in a hotel room in Mexico City on 2 December 1982, during the making of the film Yellowbeard. On the DVD commentary of Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks cites factors that may have contributed to Feldman's death:

"He smoked sometimes six packs of cigarettes daily, drank copious amounts of black coffee, and ate a diet rich in eggs and dairy products". Plus, the high altitude of Mexico City (over 7,000 feet above sea level, where the air is about 20% thinner) probably added more stress on Feldman by forcing his heart and lungs to work harder. Michael Mileham, who made the behind-the-scenes movie Group Madness about the making of Yellowbeard, said he and Feldman swam to an island where a local was selling lobster and coconuts. Mileham and Feldman used the same knife on their lobsters; Mileham claimed he got shellfish poisoning the next day, and theorised that this could also have contributed to Feldman's death.

In an anecdotal story, cartoonist Sergio Aragonés was also filming nearby in a different production. While dressed for his role as an armed policeman, Aragonés abruptly encountered Feldman and, in introducing himself, frightened Feldman. Aragonés speculates that this possibly induced Feldman's fatal heart attack later in the evening. Aragonés has recounted the story with the punchline, "I killed Marty Feldman". The story was converted into a strip in Aragonés's issue of DC Comics' Solo.

He is buried in Forest Lawn – Hollywood Hills Cemetery near his idol, Buster Keaton, in the Garden of Heritage.

Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. Easy Peasy. I'm a huge fan going back to when I first saw them live in '69/70 during the Benefit tour.

I'm also given to understand that he has since given up all smoking.


Cheers,
