titwrench: Both guys from KISS look 40 in those pictures


Agreed. Not at all surprised to see how good-looking Scott Weiland was, either. Nice smile + symmetric features = handsome (even when drugged-up). Kurt Cobain had the same good looks, though he worked a bit harder to get rid of his.

Is that REALLY Kirk Hammett?

Some UK farker should find similar photos for Lemmy, etc (assuming they exist)...

Cuthbert Allgood: Kirk Hammet was a black chick in high school?


That was my thought too... whiskey tango foxtrot.

RexTalionis: And apparently, Steven Tyler was The Joker.


I came here solely to post this statement. nice. It really is uncanny!

I tried guessing the star before scrolling down to see the name. At Kirk Hammet I was guessing it was someone like Lauren Hill or Whitney Houston

Thought Corey Taylor was Mustaine before I read the name.
Zakk Wylde looks...intense.
Surprised by a few (Cobain, De La Rocha, Jonathan Davis)

Thought the rest looked kinda how you'd expect

/Really, Hammet!? WTF!?

Also....

Lydia_C: You might have to magnify the skinny strip on the left side of the browser window in order to see anything.

/LMAO Jon Bon Jovi


Jon Bon Jovi went to Catholic school, so that explains it.

I always knew Kirk Hammet was a nerd. Im sure he saw the inside of a few toilet bowls back in the day

Just going by those photo's I'd go with Chester Bennington and Marylin Manson getting swirlies in the day.

I was quite surprised at how normal and almost pretty boy like Kurt Kobain looked in his pic.

Dio, and Les have that "why yes, i have enjoyed LSD " look about them. Kh as Rosa Parks! Haha! Paul Stanley is a mutant.

Am I the only one amused by the sight of Trent Reznor in a dorky suit and tie? He looks ridiculous.

Some guys could really pull off the 80s hair styles.

I wasnt one of them.

Alice Cooper has always looked 50 years old somehow. Gene Simmons too.

maelstrom0370: Thought Corey Taylor was Mustaine before I read the name.


Same here, I was trying to guess each one and I also thought Taylor was Dave Mustaine. Only two I guessed right were Billy Corgan and James Hetfield.

My respect for Kirk Hammett just went up a notch. See, I've always had short, respectable hair - mostly because in order to grow it out, I'd have to go through a stage where it looked like Kirk's hair in that pic. And I always cut it before it reaches that stage out of embarrassment.

But Kirk just dealt with it. The proof is in his long rocker hair. He just lived through that stage and the humiliation and abuse that went along with it. And I didn't have a girly face and huge nerd glasses to compound the embarrassment, but he did.

And I respect that.

I think I went to school with half of these guys.

Kiss wasn't all that young when they started out. Gene Simmons already was a teacher for a few years. Also schools had stricter dress codes too. That's why a lot of the older rockers couldn't grow their hair long until they graduated.

Danzig looks like he's going to murderize someone

Les Claypool was quite handsome. Looks like that stoner senior whose age you would guess to be around 25.

Paul Stanley looks like a fish farked a gumdrop and he's the offspring.

S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: Steven Tyler, why so serious?


He looks like the love child of Heath Ledger and Andy Samberg.

Trent Reznor looks like a cross between Martin Short and a young Dustin Hoffman.

/oh, excuse me, Oscar winner Trent Reznor

Welfare Peanut Butter: Am I the only one amused by the sight of Trent Reznor in a dorky suit and tie? He looks ridiculous.


Not surprised. Growing up out in Pennsyltucky and being forced to wear dorky clothing pretty much guarantees the angst needed to concieve of albums like The Downward Spiral. Luckily, he also had the talent.

A. Snatchfold: bungle_jr: A. Snatchfold: Cuthbert Allgood: Kirk Hammet was a black chick in high school?

And apparently Saul Hudson led a double life as Slash AND El DeBarge in the eighties. My hat's off to your masterful turn at subterfuge, sir.

i read a quote from slash about being both black and british in the american metal scene...even though i know he's half black and originally from england i just never even think of anything but long curly hair covering 90% of his face with a top hat sticking up, and incredible guitar playing...and an animated role on a much-too-short-lived cartoon "kid notorious".

thanks to your comment i now also think of his singing r&b-pop hits in the mid-80s


Also, if I can get "Who's Johnny?" stuck in your head on a never-ending loop today, I will have considered my job done.


I'm going to hunt you down and wear your skin as a raincoat. Dammit.

/thanks
