Found a screen shot at [audiokarma.org]

Scroll down to see the message by mg196. He/she says: "He is the dude at the lower-left w/ long black hair and red clothes!"



^^^ Sure looks like a young JT to me (standing on a box? grinning smiley )


Here's another shot from [www.thunders.ca]



Poster Vudicus at [forums.stevehoffman.tv] says:
"I think he is noticeable during Satisfaction, Honky Tonk Woman and Street Fighting Man."

Yes, it has been established it's definitely him. Which is pretty great.

...how come this guy stands out among the crowd while JT was a midget?
Did he spend the show perched atop an empty crate of beer?

Everyone around him seems taller, maybe they were standing on a small elevation in the field?

Have seen this pic several times before and this was always my thought too.

No disrepect for JT (the guy could make a guitar sing like nobody else) but he was about 5'5'.

I've read somewhere that he was probably sitting on somebody's shoulders, so that's why he looks taller. I could only find this old thread about the same subject: [www.iorr.org]

It could be anyone. There's a bloke in the Hyde Park 69 video that looks like Andy Summers from the Police. But it's probably not him. And there's a bloke in The hyde park 2013 vid who look like The Scarf and I am 100 percent certain it is him.

It is Thunders as confirmed by Sylvain in a New York Dolls biography book

Wow, thank you boys and girls!
Johnny played with Gang War at Heat in Tribeca in 1979. A certain mr Iggy Pop came out for an encore duet. That was moi slakka trying to pull Ig into the audience. Don’t know why. Just wanted to be closer I guess.

It could be Summers. He played with Eric Burdon and the Animals about that time.

It is Johnny in the Gimme Shelter movie, he told it himself
while watching it with a friend of me who played with him
during the eighties.
