This vintage author photo was taken by my friends John and Julie just prior to the release of Population 485. I maintain that I was not sporting a true mullet, as ALL of my hair was long. However, it was getting thin enough on top that one of my friends called it a “skullet”. It’s fairly short in this photo. Usually it was waist-length.
The t-shirt was a gift from my editor/friend Bill. I wrote for Road King trucking magazine for years. The t-shirt was my favorite, so much so that as described in TRUCK: A Love Story I wore it on my first date with my future wife. Seven years later I have more lines and less hair, but my single eyebrow is still heartily intact.
