Elvis was ahead of the game...

Now, you're onto something there, Jah. Elvis picked up a lot of that from the kung fu stuff. I wonder...

[Edit: fucked post]

Found a picture of Chuck Berry legs akimbo and couldn't post it.

Anyway, it was him, probably.

SWR, the 'on the knees' pose is a classic but a different thing all together

Why not admit this is only an excuse to post a picture of yourself in your brand new suit?

By the way, the bottom button goes unbuttoned.

We've done this before and, if there is a button, it needs to be buttoned up

Really, Bored, you don't want to discuss buttons with me unless you're ready for a ten-pager full of expletives. Let's just say it's a fashion faux pas befitting a footballer.

Keeping buttons unbuttoned therefore denying them their labour is bourgeois

There's something not quite right here. No wonder Bernard kicked him out of the band.

Paul Simonon did that low-slung thing too.

I'm having trouble finding a suitable guitar-playing position, have opted for the weight on one leg/hip and head slightly back; and am very glad I don't have to do it for any length of time. But that's probably an age thing.

Cripes, a bloke in a suit, but without a tie. Looks like he's off to the races.

At least I can't tell if he's wearing trainers.

Come on, I'm not a savage. Wearing suits without ties is allowed in rock and roll

Seeing as the suit is causing a debate, here is my latest version, specially for OTF

I saw him play with The Good, The Bad & The Queen not so long ago and he mostly had it a bit higher up, presumably as a concession to age, with the odd lunge thrown in. On the whole he was in rather better nick than Hooky though.

Yeh, I saw him play last year and he's not still doing the crouching stance ... One of his former colleagues (Terry Chimes) is a chiropractor, maybe he's had a word ;-)
