Will we ever see Peter Rowan again?

Do you think any future release from the band (album, box set, best of, etc) will feature an adult Peter Rowan on the cover? Or would that be too cheesy? If done right it could be a nice bookend to their career.

(he's the boy from the 'Boy' and 'War' covers for those of you who don't know)

I always thought that this would be a cool idea, but at the same time it seems cliched.

What does everyone think?

That's a really interesting idea! Maybe U2 could use his image as part of their last album cover (whenever that might be) as a way of coming "full circle."

I remember a few years back seeing a current pic of him - I found this on Google

It would be too cheesy. Kind of like when they considered calling Achtung, Baby "Man." For the love of God, no.

I don't see why it wouldn't work ... but then again, if U2 does do a final album it might be nice to have something new ...

If they had used the second photo for the cover of Abbey Road then, yes, it would've been cheesy. The red and blue albums are just compilations, so they don't really count.

Well, if they had done it for a best of or something...with the "boy" pic on the front jacket and a "man" pic on the back, it might've worked...or at least it would signal a passage of time. But just for an album, naw, I think it'd be silly.

I think it might work if it wasn't JUST Peter Rowan.. it would be cool if there was a little pic of him in the liner notes, or a tranparent image of him on the cover or something. But if it was just him, it would be too cheesy
