Curiosity: Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson, Mickey Dolenz, Keith Moon. Can someone identify the others in the frame? Is the seated figure on lower left Hoyt Axton?

Does not look like Hoyt Axton to me; looks like a different wide-faced, jowly fellow.

Too many dead guys in that photo . . . .

I notice debauchery. And booze. Which did in the two dead guys (conveniently holding a drink to help the young identify the dead).

Ambrose, kudos to you!
