From a TV appearance with his skiffle band, at the ripe old age of 14. The young Page on what he wanted to do when he grew up: “I want to do biological research.” We guess he did.
That’s young James Osterberg wielding the tambourine. We’re not sure which band this is — if anyone knows, do drop a line in the comments section and enlighten us.
All the way on the left, with his first band, The Castiles, in his native New Jersey. He looks so little!
Looking happy. Sigh.
With the curiously titled Automatic Dlamini, her early project with John Parish, in Bristol, circa 1988. Harvey was 19, maybe 20.
