Share this post:

It’s #14 of our unknown photos series!  This time, we return to some photos that are of a musical nature–or so they seem.  We welcome your suggestions regarding the names of the people in any of the shots below.  As always, as they are identified, we will update this blog accordingly.  As always as well, ”clicking” on any of the images below will increase them in size so that they are easier to see.  Many thanks!

  1. I #10 is of D.C. and Selby Minner. See . Selby is on Facebook.

  2. #7 looks like Terri Nunn of the band Berlin…

  3. #5 looks like singer Kate Garner who was in the British 80’s band Haysi Fantayzee and who went on to be a very successful photographer

  4. #2: The hair style and facial hair remind me of 80s-era Ice-T, but I don’t know if that’s him.

    #3: Could it be Taylor Dayne?

  5. #6 – The man on the far left looks like he might be a very young Robert Townsend. Wikipedia says that Townsend studied at Chicago’s Second City comedy workshop.

  6. #7 is Louise Lecavalier from modern dance group La La La Human Steps.

    Picture probably taken from their show “Infante C’est Destroy” (1991)

  7. Just a guess, but #3 could be Yvonne Elliman, who was born in Hawaii of Japanese, Chinese and Irish descent. She also sang backup for Eric Clapton for for five years in the 70s.

  8. Oops. I meant that the girl in #4 COULD be Yvonne Elliman.

  9. #1 : on the left, look alike singer Robbie Williams

  10. Could #3 be Samantha Fox? Taylor Dayne also seems like a strong possibility.

  11. #1 – Is the guy on the right Anthony Kiedis of The Red Hot Chili Peppers?

  12. #8 – is this Jon Bon Jovi?

  13. #3 Looks like singer Brenda K. Starr

  14. #2 – Could the man standing by Rubin’s car be Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons? He is wearing what looks like a NY Yankees hat (which Simmons has been known to wear) and the facial hair matches Simmons’s 1980s appearance.

  15. #3 looks like Pebbles

  16. #3 looks like Jennifer Aniston

  17. I posted this on the other blog page with this photo, but could #3 be Val Young?
