(TV) Rock Star Clothes

Sadly, I didn't have a video at the time. As I remember it, he played 
"Walker" and "Bomb" in full beret, black Jazzmaster get-up. 

It's interesting the see Tom's various 'styles', and how they connect with
the music he's playing at the time.  When I think of Tommy, I only ever
think of the music he's turning out, because at a glance, there doesn't seem
to be much of an aesthetic style to him.  Certainly not like KISS (wanker
band) or even the Ramones (really cool).  There is style there.  It's very
sublime.  Sometimes it compliments, other times there's quite the contrast.

Take, for example, the contrast of Flashlight era Tom: all dressed in black,
with artiste beret, yet playing (to my ear's anyway) some of his most
hard-driving rock 'n' roll songs.  To me, Flashlight has always had a
certain 'country' tinge to it, yet he's all done up like a Paris poet.
Anyone agree/disagree?
