It's clearly the guy in the middle. The guy on the left looks insecure, perhaps contemplating his future with the group, and the guy on the right is an ingratiating kiss-ass. Middle guy's in charge.

See, and I think the guy on the left, who isn't smiling looks like he's exhausted from wrangling the other two. He's in charge and it's like carrying a bag of cats.

Prof. Plaid is ready to break away, poised with a silent confidence that only a front man possesses. "Let'em laugh," he thinks... "they will miss me when I'm gone."

Stephan said...

Derek is right. Although I would say the guy on the left looks more disgruntled than insecure, however, his insecurity is probably to blame for that anyways.

guy on left got his attitude from watching "shaft", while the other two got their attitude from the sears catalog where they all ordered their suits. mr.left is in charge.

Jared X said...

These soul outfits are typically made up of a guy in front and two back-ups snapping their fingers and dancing in unison behind the leader.

No one who was expecting to be executing the choreographed dance moves of the backups would don a plaid suit. The audience would get seizures watching that.

Professor Plaid, on the left, is the main Main Ingredient.

I'd say the dude on the left. He's starting to separate from the rest already and doesn't look as pleasant, as though he has more to worry about as the one in charge.

It's definitely Prof. Bad Plaid. He's got some much leadin' to do, he doesn't even have time for this album cover crap.
