Nixon? He started the war on drugs, and hated "those dirty hippies".

Nope.

Nixon it ain't.

He was arrested for marijuana possession while traveling to the Orient.

No, the one that didn't inhale was the one that "....did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinski."

No, the guy has never been president, in fact he couldn't because he is not a US citizen.

He was knighted by the Queen though.

And I just noticed that the photo is similar to that of one of our members here, Swift1.

I can't believe that Mr. Parrallax and I are the only ones who know who the guy is.
I can't believe you didn't get my reference to the "xxxx is dead" myth. Oh well, just Let It Be.

I did, but only after I made my post. Please forgive me.

I also notice that Mag Kelly seems to get it too, and I believe that Jean, who posted it also knows.

This is probably the only one, so far:

I saw that too. My guess is some guy.
But I'll bet that Joel may not know, and he has yet to drop in.

Okay, I'll have to admit to some musical illiteracy - I always thought that Badfinger's "Come and Get It" (written and produced by our Mystery Man) was actually performed by his original Mystery Band (his demo version did appear on one of their anthology collections). I felt a little better when I mentioned this to someone who is a huge fan of said Mystery Band, who thought it was, too.


(Some say their Mystery Tours are "Magical".)

Quite an honour, I guess, getting knighted by a famous metal band, especially one that could really rock you. Did he get the honour for inventing the SLR? Feel like I'm a big disgrace, mud on my face for not knowing.

I don't recall him holding an Asahi Pentax when he was in that storefront bed gig.

And he never got to hold a Horic Pentax at all!
