...and I'm not referring to a BF member user I.D.

I suspect this is a person of some notoriety, and I'm just curious to find out who he is and what makes him noteworthy.

Thanks!

*by the way, I have permission from a certain BF member to ask the question*

You mean the member who uses this avatar doesn't know who it is, either??

He died young in jail (early 30s.)

Interesting read on Baader here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andreas_Baader

The photos on file don't seem to quite match up, although Baader has similar features.



What do you think? Any other suggestions?

I think we may have a winner. That, or it's someone closely associated with Baader. Searching for pics on Google, one comes across the pic I've attached below. It appears the avatar mentioned in the original post is a more complete scan from the same image, flipped horizontally. Notice that the stray strands of hair are in the same place, and even the shadows (or bruises or bad makeup or whatever) above the cheekbone are in the same place.

Good work, Jschen!

I thought I had scanned through all of the Google images, but I apparently missed that one.

OK, Baader it is. Quite an unsavory fellow, but died under mysterious circumstances nonetheless...

edit:

Well, this exercise gave me the opportunity to brush up a bit on Jean-Paul Sartre, who interviewed Baader in prison before his death.

Thanks again!

I'd have guessed a young Tommy Lee Jones.

I think that was just a picture he used at the barber shop so he could get the same hair cut.
