Peter Gabriel was New Wave?!?

And it's Sparks, not The Sparks. They weren't exactly New Wave, either.

I wouldn't have pegged Corey Hart as New Wave either, but Wikipedia seems to think he was.

And I don't actually think I ever knew what the guys from Yello looked like even though I must have listened to "80-85" a thousand times in high school.

Ya, it's a pretty broad interpretation of 'New Wave'. Should have gone with '80's Eurotrash bands.

Swear to god, wouldn't have recognized Mick Jones,

The B52's all look great. Not trying too hard, unlike:

At some point, you just have to let the look go. You're a certain age now. Now, Siouxsie gets a pass, but anyone who came after, not so much.

That must have been very recent. I saw her at some British music award show last year. She was a little chunky then but she's a lot bigger than I remember.

The Go-Go's are miftastic. And yet again, I'm startled by an unexpected Pete Burns post surgery pic.

Roland Orzabal from Tears for Fears has aged about 5 years in the last 30. I actually did a GIS to make sure it was a recent pic and not one from the mid 90s or something.

A few things to note about Peter Gabriel

-He's not "new wave"

-His voice still sounds great and he still puts on a great show

-He's been bald/head shaved, gray beard and chubby for about 15 years now

Did I mention he still sounds great? And he has some of the very best prog rock songs written. And he has Tony Levin on bass. And his recent show's production and overall sound is as good as they come. Hope he comes back state-side soon.

It would have been cool if they got a recent pic of Leeway.  It would be cool if they got back together.  You know, once more into the gap.

I saw the Up tour and loved it.  He spoke of having a lot of unreleased material at that time so I hoped something would come of it.  Still waiting.  I won't give up.

Orlazabel seems to have aged better than anybody else on that list.  Maybe it's because he sings songs for the young at heart.

Peter Gabriel should avoid the bald headed, spectacled, thin moustache+fluff of goaty beard look.

I ran into Debbie Harry once, I was working for a restaurant chain in Manhattan and she was standing at the door (it was closed) trying to get someone's attention. I thought it was an old woman wearing pink lipstick. I said "Excuse me mam" and walked inside. The manager said it's said what happened to her. I said who? He said Debra Harry. I looked again and said "Holy ... That is her!" She was still at the door, she wanted to give a cd to the chief, for cooking her a good meal.

The only "depressing" part about those pics of former Talking Heads is they can't be arsed out to put their differences aside and do some shows. David Byrne & St Vincent is one of the best shows I've seen this year. And I've seen about 65 acts of all age ranges and genres.  Byrne still has it in him. Whatever "it" is.
