For most of the artistes I recognised (mainly the rock and metal ones), I could correlate the 'then' and the 'now' faces.

A few of them look better now than they did then.
Joan Jett looks almost exactly the same.
I think that's a good reason to take care of your body; so you age well. Of course, I don't know how much of that is due to genetics and how much is due to lifestyle. I guess some people just naturally age badly while others age well.

Anyone here seen the movie The Prestige? David Bowie was awesome in that film. I love that movie. I only saw it recently, and it's older than I thought it was.

I know I'm not a fast reader, but I couldn't read the text at the bottom of the pictures before the pictures changed. Was anyone else able to?

Interesting how Mick Jagger and Keith Richards aged in exactly the same ways.

I recently saw the movie Videodrome (1983) I thought the entire movie "why does the main character look so familiar". When I later checked the character on IMDB I found out it was Blondie (with brown hair) :smile:

Here's a recent picture of Cameron Diaz. She claims to be 39!! Looks closer to 59 to me.

I wonder if there weren't some surgeons in on that latest look of hers.

If she looked that good at 59, I'd think she was an alien.
She hasn't aged very well, but I think she still looks good. That picture makes her face look more aged than it does normally, I think.

A rock star I think who has aged amazingly is Jared Leto. He's in his 40's now and could play a college student in a movie, I think.

I had trouble with only a couple of the "before" pix, but would have drawn blanks on many of the "afters" if they had been show in that order.

Meatloaf is the only one who actually looks better!

John Lydon looks, um, like hitler?

Isn't it funny though how the voice seems to be the last to go? That's how I recognize them.
considering the drugs and alcohol etc that went down their "collective throats" its amazing how the voices lasted.
You can recognise Stevie Nicks' voice anywhere, really hasnt changed much
