But how would you know if they are under the influence? They prob are in most of the photos circa Factory days. Except for Mo.

^ that is in the 1997 Billy Name book of colour photos imaginatively titled All Tomorrow's Parties, it's at one of the Be-ins. Chuck Wein is also in the photo, cropped out, to the right.
