Piper is awesome here. Lonnie Mayne looks like he's half dead already.

Moondog Mayne was killed in a car crash in mid August of 1978, not very long after this clip was taped. He was 33, about a month shy of his next birthday. I look at him and wonder how such a thing could be possible. People aged faster back then and an alcoholic pro wrestler living hard on the road aged faster still, but he looked a decade older than his true age.
