"What's interesting is that I can't say I remember this session with photographer Jim Marshall at all... I remember all the '89 era stuff when he came on the road and we did at least one formal studio session as well as the candid stuff but not this one.
It's clearly a 'Ceremony' era promo picture so all I can assume is that our US record label Sire hired Jim to come down and do fresh official stuff prior to the albums release. I've seen lots of photos from this exact era before (I had cut my hair and it was acting weird) including the one with the 12 string guitar and some with a polka dot shirt but never this exact one!...
