    It's Lemmy without the warts. No it's not, it's Brian James - founder of the Damned and chief songwriter for their first two albums. Andysays is correct, presuming that's who he meant.

    Tony James?

    And why is Mr Sensible using a saucer with a mug? What sort of a punk is he?

    Answer already given upthread. It's the Damned's Brian James during his time in the band called 'Bastard' who were active from 1972 to 1975 or thereabouts - they didn't release any records although there are at least three unreleased tracks in the vaults.

    It does look like Lemmy, that's who I thought it was when I first saw the photo. Coincidentally, 'Bastard' was also Lemmy's intended name for the band that became Motorhead.

    I'm with it now. It's Brian not Tony for starters and no ive never ever used a saucer with a mug.

    He has a spoon on the saucer as well. Dear oh Dear. How the other half live.

    Everybody looked like that. Except skinheads. And squaddies. And lots of other people. But except for them, everybody looked like that. I know I did.
