Who is on the cover of the "Staring at the Sun" single?

Who is that profiled man? I've been wondering this since the single came out ten long years ago. It doesn't look like any of the guys. Am I wrong in this?



...wow, I must be really bored.

Adam, looking oddly more like he does now than he did during that time period. If only Pop had been foreshadowing more things to come...
