Icon106 Courtney Love on Grateful Dead album cover

Comment: I spoke with GRATEFUL DEAD historian DAVID GANS, and was able to
confirm the old rumor that COURTNEY LOVE does in fact appear on the back
cover of the 1969 GRATEFUL DEAD album cover, AOXOMOXOA. She was 5 years
old in the picture. DAVID GANS said: "CCOURTNEY LOVE did in fact appear
on the back cover of AOXOMOXOA as a child. Her father was HANK HARRISON,
one of the band's managers in the early days of the GRATEFUL DEAD."

It's mentioned here, but I can't seem to find the picture in question.

Here it is.

Which one's supposed to be Courtney is anyone's guess.

At last! The question that's haunted my soul since the day of my birth has been answered! Now that my life's mission of finding the answer is complete I can finally die happy.

Are all these people wrestling as heels in Japan? (Putting your name in English, in ALL CAPS, is considering a villianous thing to do in Puroresu)

Well there seems to be a key underneath, but I can't see the numbers in the picture, and there are more than 12 people so they haven't labelled them all. I reckon St. Stephen must be the guy by the tree at the back, Rosemary is somewhere in the middle and China Cat Sunflower is the woman on the left of the middle row. Maybe Courtney Love was called "What's Become Of The Baby" in those days. I'm not sure about Clementine Jam, though - perhaps she and the rest of the Jam family are the front row. And frankly Cosmic Charlie could be any of them - maybe that's why he appears twice (and one of him is dead!)...

Ummm, I think those are the songs on the album.

Is that her right at the front on the right? Looks about the right age.

Yeah, that's her at the front wearing the shawl. I think she writes about it in her book "Dirty Blonde"
