    Good, because… uh… well, I’m sure this is good for some reason.

    I’m looking at that picture and realizing that I don’t think I can identify all four rock dudes. #2 is Hendrix and #3 is Lennon, I guess. But is #1 supposed to be Elvis? And is #4…Graham Nash?!?

    I was thinking it was Wavy Gravy.

    Or maybe Jerry Garcia?

    @Maura Johnston: My guess: Bob Marley.

    @PengIn: Of course it’s good we desparately need a place where autographed guitars can be hung on the wall.

    @natepatrin: #4 is, indeed, Bob Marley but I still don’t see him at all there.

    These new investors are fools. “Reopened by Memorial Day weekend” and closed by Independence Day.

    @Dickdogfood: #2 reminds me of Lionel Richie circa the Hello video bust that’s sculpted by the blind girl. After more thought, I think #1 is Elvis with a touch of Mickey Rourke from The Wrestler. #3 is John Denver and #4 is my grandpa.

    I’m glad someone else was bothered by those likenesses. #1 is definitely Elvis, although the hair is the only thing that gives it away. #4 is an absolute mystery.
