Mike Leno looks horrendous.
I still think Simon is hot.
Lordy, Robert Smith hasn't aged!
Def Leppard! Still awesome in concert.
1) He is! (And he stilll whines when he sings)
2) Yes, but makeup can cover a lot.
Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet didn't age very well. Must be all the booze. I had a HUGE crush on him back in the day. The most handsome man with a great voice
This really reinforces the fact that beauty is ephemeral. Or as Mick said, "Time can tear down a building, or destroy a woman's face." But the "now" pictures are not particularly flattering either. David Gahan from Depeche Mode is still HOTT (saw him a year ago) but you wouldn't know it from his photo, and Jon Bon Jovi looks much better than his picture would suggest. Still, the rest of the guys have not held up particularly well.
Pointer Sisters really held up well, haven't they?
That format was really annoying to scroll through - they should have the then-and-now photos next to each other. Mike Reno
and eys, Duran Duran is still
But Robert Smith? Didn't get to his photo here, but he's looked an old hot mess for over a decade.
I was only just saying this the other day. Simon was cute back then and is still very cute in a kind of older way.
Can't believe that Loverboy is still around, along with Twisted Sister and the Pointer Sisters.
I was thinking that in general the women have held up better than the men, but the cynic in me just wondered whether they've all had plastic surgery.
Hey, don't diss my Blubberboy.
Although HAWT Phil was shown on the news jamming on guitar with (wait for it....)
Jon Bon Jovi looks great these days. Still smokin' hot! Still puts on a great show. Richie Sambora not so much...he and Heather Locklear too much booze.
I know. I was totally angst ridden over it. Do you know if Phil had his shirt off? I could probably watch it if Phil was shirtless.
I think you can still age somewhat gracefully if you've kept your weight in check and took good care of your skin ...and didn't smoke, do drugs, etc. Most of these guys have gained weight, and probably had no idea what moisturizer and/or sunscreen was during their 20s.
How come Europe and Asia aren't represented here?
John Taylor (my of band crushes) of Duran Duran is looking a bit rougher than he did in the '80's, but he was so pretty back then it only manned him up a bit. He's still .
Glad to oblige: Ladies and gentlemen, the drummer from Asia, Carl Palmer!http://www.promark.com/images/uploads/news/news_carlpalmer.jpg
Cool. My guess is that that's a "now" shot.
One of the greatest drummers of all time
Yep, say ELP twice, once in 1978, next in 1993. And yes Neptune, that picture was taken in 2009!
Wow, that sure takes me back. (The same way that "Do they know its Christmas" takes me back....yes, I can recognize and name every single singer. Although I do think it's eyeroll-worthy that they gave the line with the word "sting" in it to Sting to sing. And, hey, let's give the line about Christmas bells to the Irish Catholic dude!)
Yeah, Simon still looks good. I was definitely a fan of his back in the day.
Yes but then one of the 3 in the "Now" picture is the grand daughter of one of the sisters.
