WE ALL GROW UP; IT'S JUST OUR PICTURES WE LEAVE BEHIND

Paramount Comedy Channel's Inconceivable website has been tracking down a naked baby - not to help Pete Townshend with his research project, but to try and find out what happened to the kid on the cover of Nevermind. Spencer Elden, who's now fourteen, apparently was only used because stock photography of a baby under water would have cost too much. Now, we know we never resist the chance to poke major labels with a stick, but how buttmean must Geffen have been to refuse to pony up for a snap from Corbis for an album which sold seventy squillion copies? Anyway, Elden isn't that bothered that half the world has seen him naked; he has a nice sideline in being the kid off the cover of Nevermind going

Oooh, and they're also on the tail of Craig Logan as well as, slightly less 'inconceivably', the other two.

For a moment, I thought you meant they were trying to track down The Other Two, as in Stephen & Gillian from New Order...

Aye, and whatever happened to that pretty Shirley from Goodbye Mr Mackenzie?
