My looks are nothing to write home about but I’m fortunate in that although a bit grayer I look very much the same as I did thirty years ago. Not everyone is so blessed and NBC Los Angeles has assembled a montage of pictures of rock stars, now mostly in their 60s and 70s, as they appeared at the height of their fame and as they look now, that illustrates that pretty well. In the picture above on the left is Grace Slick in her Jefferson Starship days and on the right as she is now.
Coco Chanel once said that at 50 you get the face that you deserve. She also said that nothing is ugly as long as it’s alive. As refutation of that claim, I submit The Rolling Stones. If anybody looks more like Dorian Gray after the portrait he had hidden is destroyed, I don’t know who that might be.
Browse through the montage at the link. It’s interesting in a Grand Guignol sort of way.
