I was looking at some pics I have of Pig the other night and noticed that between 67-68 it looks like he dropped about 40 pounds.....These are not the best examples cause I am at work, but, take a look at these two..

67

68

I was wondering if anyone out there has any diffinitive info on this topic...I read Rock Scully's book and Blair Jackson's and neither talked about it. I think I read somewhere that he did not really get sick until '71, but I was wondering about this crazy drop in weight. I dunno if he just went on a diet, drank instead of ate, or a combo of both. It just struck me as I was looking at all the '67 pics I had and how he looked like a giant biker freak, and then by mid '68 he looked like a shriveled up version of his former self....Anyone, LiA?

Good question. My theory is that he probably started to develop ulcers and didnt eat much, switched from cheap wine and beer to exclusively liquor, and cigarettes. So that would slim you down. I dont think he started to get "sick" until maybe mid-late 70, then in summer-fall of 71 he was seriosuly illin.

Let's not forget all of the touring going on in '67-8. Ample opportunity to sweat it off onstage.
