What Southern-rock band should long-missing Marine Lance Hering join?
Lance Hering, the recently arrested Marine whose bizarre disappearance was the subject of the 2007 Adam Cayton-Holland feature article "An Uphill Battle" and yesterday's blog "The End of the Line for AWOL Marine Lance Hering," used to look like the typical close-shorn serviceman. As the mug shots seen here demonstrate, however, he resurfaced looking like a Southern rocker circa the mid-'70s. But which vintage band would he have fit into most easily? The Allman Brothers? Lynyrd Skynyrd? Molly Hatchet? Blackfoot? Marshall Tucker? Look at the band photos below and judge for yourself. But be warned: Hering probably won't be able to sing "Free Bird" with any (advance groan) conviction for quite some time. -- Michael Roberts
