Kid On Album Cover Grows Up, Joins Band

I'm not sure if I believe this, but if it's true, it's amazing. This would be like Nirvana reforming with Spencer Elden on guitar and vocals. Or Stefan and Samanatha Gates playing dual drum kits in a Zeppelin reunion. Where else can we go with this? How about Blind Faith in 2010 with Clapton, Winwood, Baker, and Mariora Goschen.

Goddamn it--while looking up the name of the kid on the Van Halen 1984 cover, I came across an article from two days ago that talks about the Smashing Pumpkins thing and does a "Where Are They Now" on kids from album covers. I've totally been beaten to this whole concept. But they didn't mention Blind Faith!

(Also, the mentioning of Nirvana on Kurt's birthday IS a coincidence--I just noticed that the date just changed to 2/20 as I was about to post this. Weird.)

Crazy story. Also, it kind of freaks me out that Siamese Dream is nearly 20 years old.
