This whole picture will not fit on my screen so I have been sitting here slowly scrolling down until I get to his twinkly toes and then scrolling back up until I get to the top of his shiny hair ....And then down ...
And then up ...
And then, well you get the idea.
Ah, Linda -- you and me both! That picture is absolutely stunning. Scroll....scroll...

His look is so interesting because it is a bit of both.
One one hand, yes, it does have content, in that you are aware that there is a lot going on, both in his brain, but also in what he emotes at the camera.
But it is also open to interpretation, the eyes are not so revealing that they press a certain mood or thought onto you, but rather do they invite to guess what might be going on behind them. It's an invitation to go searching and to start interpreting his gaze. The perfect model.
Very few can manage to do both, be expressive as well as be an open template.
Craazy, love this post ... It's been a pet theory of mine for a while that the people who become icons have to have just that seemingly paradoxical combination of qualities that you describe ... great personal magnetism, physical beauty or striking-ness, fascinating personal story or characteristics, something that makes them both of their time yet timeless and then a certain blankness or spaciousness as well, a blank canvas aspect that allows us to project our own ideas and fantasies and desires on or through them. I think I can see this combination of quaities in Marilyn Monroe and Elvis, among others, and it may explain why it is so easy for these iconic figures to lose themselves in all the dreams people project onto them. With those two there is a sense of unfinishedness about theim that made room for others' ideas about them. Adam seems better grounded, seems almost to consciously make room for us ("it's coming from a good place" "go ahead and trespass (if you dare)") yet he is equally compelling in many of the same ways, ways that say to me that more is going on than people just liking his voice or his looks.

I believe the photographer could make a buck or two by selling a life size poster of this pic... ;D Am trying to remember who has an Adam poster on the inside of her laundry room cabinet. This would do nicely on the closet door, don't you think?
You gave me this when I thought I'd heard all the Mad World I ever needed to- and it's been one of my favorite things ever since. The Artistry! The hand porn! (Esp after 3:00 or so-git it Adam!) Shall we enjoy the funky breakdown one more time? :D Sending you a tidal wave of warm chakra light
Late to respond, cuz I couldn't watch it on my iPad. How the hell did I miss this? Massive. Love to see Adam let go and improv like crazy. It reminds me of Kevin's statement about how Adam would do these insane improvs during rehearsal. Thanks for posting this.
