Eddie vedder is the same age as Kurt Cobain, and he looks great.

Man, they were really kind to Janis.

Jim Morrison wound up looking like Kris Kristofferson.

The most realistic to me was Keith Moon.

The worst is Cass Elliot. Complete butcher job

Cobain would be balding and fat, because if he lived this long, he would have had to cut out the drugs.

hervatski: Eddie vedder is the same age as Kurt Cobain, and he looks great.


Eddie Vedder clearly signed a contract with the devil.
 
2013-11-18 11:37:53 PM  
Jimi would look like Bill Murray?
 
2013-11-18 11:47:57 PM  
Why does Dennis Wilson look like Scott Bakula?

Lol. The other band members look good too. shiat look at Dave ghrohl. That guy looks 10 times better now than he did in the 90s!

Nah, she's just eternally anorectic.

Eddie Vedder looks like a truck driver.

/his music is still awesome as hell

If Axl Rose lived, they think he'd look like this?


cdn.ustatik.com

That is seriously bad photoshop. It looks nothing like he did before his premature death caused GnR to abandon work on Chinese Democracy (which would have been a great album, had it been finished).
 
2013-11-19 12:13:38 AM  
Like they would have stayed that thin. And I'd bet a lot of the guys would either have short thinning hair or be balding. I like how they have Elvis kind of in good shape for his age when his last days were as an overweight lounge singer.

I remember, years ago some guitar mag did a "What if Hendrix died this month" obit, and ventured into the idea that he'd have moved onto jazz guitar in the 70's and 80's. IMHO he exited at the right time.

Sat right behind Eddie at an Ms game this year. Yes on both counts.

I like the cut of your jib.

Okay... I know he wasn't a musician, but could somebody please do what Abe Vigoda would look like today if he were still alive?

I saw an interview with Pete and Keith on some American daytime tv show around 1979 ish, when they were doing the "kids are alright" movie,
and Keith looked very similar to a flamboyant Nathan Lane in the 90's (think the Birdcage)
 
2013-11-19 12:50:43 AM  
Rod Stewart, Sting, and Elvis Costello have aged well, methinks.


/Richard Manuel looked like he was in his 40's back in 1976.... :(

hahaha I recall that article. Hendrix and Miles Davis was the suggestion. I thought it sounded like a terrible idea.

Hendrix was supposed to join the newly formed Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
They would've been called  " H.E.L.P. "

/srsly

The Karen Carpenter one looks fat.
 
2013-11-19 01:45:37 AM  
So, if he'd lived, Cobain would have joined The Eagles?
 
2013-11-19 01:55:01 AM  
Pretty sure this one would have been killed with fire by now.

With Jim Morrison, they could have just posted a recent pic of Val Kilmer.

Janis Joplin kind of looks like my ex's mom.

Dennis Wilson looks like today's Glenn Frey.

Instead I think they used a recent pic of Jon Voight.

After biatches Brew, jazz guitar became more Jimi Hendrix and less Joe Pass for most of the 70s and 80s.

What a tragedy. If only he lived. Can you imagine the impact G'nR would have had? It would have been amazing.

Davis ended up playing with  John McLaughlin.

Wow.

Terrible link.

Terrible pictures.

Terrible concept.

Just...  wow.

Worse than that book by Newt Gingrich about "what if the South had won the Civil War."

They left out Iggy Pop.

/is TittySprinkles still dating his granddaughter?

Here's what Iggy Pop would look like if he were alive today.

huh, so that awful grunge episode of the Simpsons was pretty spot on with Kurt looking like Homer.
 
2013-11-19 07:41:48 AM  
Is it just me or does "aged" Kurt Cobain look vaguely like Lee Harvey Oswald?
 
2013-11-19 07:46:21 AM  
Hendrix = Kramer.
 
2013-11-19 08:04:56 AM  
Looks like they just took a picture of Bill Clinton and said 'hey here's Elvis if he was still alive'
