That dude from Slade on the bottom right of that cover should be shot dead by fashion police.

That's Dave Hill - whose "fringe" always reminds me of how my mother put scotch tape across my bangs (as a straight edge) when I was a child and cut them too short.

What is it with parents not only being incompetent barbers but reckless and impatient ones too?

Yes hands up done some real bad hair fringe cuts once or twice on the little people.
Going back to 17th Century, Barbers were trained to do minor Operations and were in fact fully trained by the Guildhall records, named Barbers/Surgeons and some went on to be wig makers as well as they were the height of Fashion...was wigs..

Apologies if this has already been done, but I prefer Harry Nilsson's cover of Badfinger's Without You (though the original is still quite good).





Nilsson was one of those artists whose covers were usually better than the original.
