The Meters

Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: The Meters
Genre: Essential New Orleans Funk
Website: This is kind of confusing. There are two websites.

The Official Funky Meters Website
The Original Meters - Official Website

Feel free to go to their Wikipedia page to sort out this mess.

Voting ends on: Monday, December 24th, 9:00am CST (GMT-6)

The Verdict (UPDATED!)

Voting has ended. Here is the tally.

Charisma on the Right - 2 votes
(Freida Bee, PJ)

The Man In Black - 6 votes
(Randal G, Beckeye, McGone, DGuzman, Anandamide, Idea of Progress)

There is no denying that the man on the right has the look, but the man in black is still in charge.

Freida Bee said...

Ok, now this is a trick picture played by the guy who is going for the "which of these suits is not like the other" vote, becuase it is the guy on hte right. Check out that charisma.

PJ said...

Agreed, it's the guy on the far right. What a guy.

Randal Graves said...

You would know that I would know that it's the guy on the far right, so I can clearly not choose the glass in front of me!

Wait, wrong entertainment genre.

It's the dude in the black. Anyone who dares to be different has leadership qualities. Go, dark sportcoat guy, go!

BeckEye said...

If it's a trick picture, I'm falling for it. But, I don't think it's a trick. We can't overthink press photos. Gotta be the guy in the dark suit.

McGone said...

I gotta go "Guy in Black Suit." It's so obvious I can't even think of anything witty to say about it.

dguzman said...

Of course it's the guy in the dark suit. And I've spent the last few years building up a resistance to iocaine powder!

anandamide said...

only the leader gets to wear a different color suit....

The Idea Of Progress said...

I'm going to have to go with Darth Vader--the rest are stormtroopers.
