"I fixated on it because he was beautiful but it was never really about his face, for me. He was a powerful, serene figure. He was very Buddha-like. He was very centered. I did think he was an angel. I thought he was larger than life. But, at the same time, he was one of us."
I watched “Funky Monks” last night since I read somewhere that Riv made a tiny cameo. I screen shotted this pic from where Gus Van Sant is taking photos for their “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” album. And the guy in the middle resembles River so much. Obviously we can’t see his face, but his body frame, IMO matches Rivers. And those rolled up pants remind me of Mike Waters.
In the second photo, it’s a screen shot of a quick second, literally, of River hugging someone and then being so polite. You could hear his voice.
