Years of Refusal Cover

Just stumbled across some photos of Joe Dallesandro holding a baby. I think that is probably Moz's inspiration for the YoR cover. Google image search Joe Dallesandro and you'll see what I mean. There is one of him on a Rolling Stone cover. He is a symbol of gay subculture. My take is that Moz's album title is another hint at his sexuality and his years of not coming clean.

Thoughts?

Actually someone already mentioned that Your Arsenal inner sleeve photo of Charlie Richardson who is holiding his son is the inspiration.

No. In that song he's the ghost of troubled Joe whom he came straight home to. You are the father and he's telling you to leave him alone. So STFU.

I thought it was his daughter. Anyroad, I won't try to say this old movie poster was the inspiration for the YOR cover, but it reminds me of YOR + Quarry covers.
