    Oh well.
    Yes !!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it sucks !! They definitely could have done a better job. At least it's not Scary Lucy territory.

    Thanks for posting. I see it now.

    Not a good likeness. Face far too broad, head too big, not skinny enough and jeans too baggy and doesn't have attitude.

    Just as a reminder (as if anyone needs one):

    I'm still wondering if maybe they're going for the statues not actually being Glenn and Jackson, but being characters in the song. So there is a slight resemblance but the whole park is acting out the lyrics. The Glenn statue looks like now his arm is going to rest on "Jackson"s shoulder and almost be like telling him the line "It's a girl my Lord in a flat bed Ford slowing down to take a look at me" referencing the truck and mural and in response to the previous lyric from Jackson's POV, and somewhat how the song was written.

    Anything that I have read states that it is supposed to be Glenn, but that the statue that is "standing on the corner" now is not a particular person, but is often erroneously thought to be Jackson Browne.

    The T shirt is wrong & being even more pedantic, he didn't have a moustache when the song was written.

    Don't get me wrong; I appreciate the sentiment but it doesn't work.

    The entire thing (everything which has happened) is such a bloody shame. Be glad I didn't use stronger language. I just feel so empty & this was supposed to help in some way, and hasn't.

    I understand, most times I feel like I have a hole in my soul that will never go away.

    I'm disappointed as well. I knew it wouldn't be perfect but the face is so wrong...

    However, it's the thought that counts. I am still glad he is getting honored with a statue.
