Why is there someone getting their breasts milked in the photo of the chick?

/The video of "Lies Lies Lies" freaked me out when they did the series of close-ups of Alannah Currie

More to the point, why are there *4* of them?


I've seen that somewhere before. Is it an album cover? Or maybe an image from a music video. This is going to annoy me until I remember where I saw it.

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.

sonnyboy11: 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.

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.

WhyteRaven74: 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.

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


Oddly enough, I ran into Roland at a.. wait for it... Peter Gabriel concert. Back in like 2003 or so. Had not aged a day.

I watched a recent live concert of the Cure on youtube and I was brought to tears of laughter when one of the comments on the video asked when Robert Smith became a crazy cat lady.
 
2013-11-27 01:48:40 AM  
I thought it was Phil who looked like Bob Hoskins...

Anyway - I can't fathom how Gabriel could have been touring for the past decade straight, while doing all of this physical stuff on stage, and still look like a stuffed porker.

Aimee Mann has off-center teeth, like Tom Cruise.  The gap between the two front teeth should line up with the center of the nose.

Ho-lee shiat.

I saw Billy Idol perform out in the parking lot of some casino in Tunica, Mississippi. (Hey, it was free, and I like some of his songs.) Granted it was about ten years ago, but IMO he was pretty farkable. What a shame.
 
2013-11-27 02:16:53 AM  
it looks like a Photoshop thread from the 80's.

Hey it has been 30 years. Time catches up to everybody. It will to those who were celebs in the internet age too.

I like new wave

which is now old wave

I'm glad I haven't aged since 1990 or so. That would be depressing, man

Morrissey, New Order, Peter Schilling, Peter Murphy, Limahl, and Holly Johnson still look very good for their age.

Found it. It's an anti-GMO billboard from New Zealand. There was a Fark thread about it 10 years ago.

It certainly was interesting to see how everyone has aged...

Hey, can someone tell me why I can't seem to stop screaming and crying?

Mark Hollis looks exactly the same, as does Fred from the B-52s and both the Eurythmics. Tears For Fears, pretty close.

And Anabella Lwin is finally over the legal drinking age, so that's good.

What happened to the black dude from the Thompson Twins? Did he get scared off by the freaky human udder photoshop art in the background?

Billy Idol's looking pretty good now....

What have the Go-Gos been having for breakfast all these years - the blood of virgins? They look great. B-52s aren't doing too badly, either.

He's really rockin' the ironic facial hair. Hipsters take note.

I was shocked at Kate Bush. She's completely let herself go. Debbie Harry, on the other hand, looks very good--although I wonder how much of that is hair dye and makeup. I'd still like to wake up next to her. Glad to see Thomas Dolby still has some pep--and I wonder about the Japanese woman in his video, how has she aged? And above all, what the hell is her name? No one seems to have any idea. No, her real name, wiseguy...

Holy crap Billy Idol!

Trevor Horn must be living in the plastic age, as he's barely aged a day...
 
2013-11-27 05:47:37 AM  

Snapper Carr: notyomama: i did a double take when I saw Kate Bush - I was really surprised she gained so much weight.

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.

/Still a goddamned genius and I will fight anyone who says differently.


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


The pic in tfa actually may be a few years old. She lost weight recently.

Peter Gabriel may not look so great, but he still kicks ass in concert.

If you're a fan and didn't see or haven't heard the New Blood Orchestra cd, I HIGHLY recommend it.

/best Gabriel concert he ever did (and I've seen every tour but 1)
 
2013-11-27 06:24:02 AM  
I feel really old now....because these stars are my age or a little bit older...  Of course, being older beats the alternative....

It's nice to know Annie Lennox's eyebrows haven't changed a bit
 
2013-11-27 07:07:02 AM  
Some of them look freakishly the same as they did 30 years ago. Others have aged well, either looking fit or not fighting it and going into the autumn gracefully. Others need to lay off the plastic surgery. Kate Bush needs to stop trying to look like Robert Smith.

Robert Smith should stop trying to look like Robert Smith.

THIS.

Peter's dad lived to be 100, so I'm hoping for a lot more concerts...and looky here, Phil's thinking about coming out of retirement. We can haz old-school Genesis reunion after all?

Curt Smith looks pretty good for a guy who was mauled by a puma.

On the subject of rock/pop musicians who have aged well, I was reading an article about Brian Eno a few weeks back, and he looked great in the pictures. Yes he is gray and balding, but still very youthful. I hope I hold up as well at 65.

Mark King must be relieved that he no longer looks like Jame Gumb.

abhorrent1: The Go Gos still look great. Anabella Lwin hit the wall hard


I think my issue with her is that she's still wearing the same makeup job 30 years later, but taking the photo from 18 inches away isn't doing her any favors. I'd like to see a shot of her from a few feet away with conventional makeup, I bet she looks okay.

There were two Paul Youngs. The one from Mike and the Mechanics died. The more famous Paul Young is still around.

It's the album cover to Die Antwoord's release "Ten$ion."  The original release before they got signed to Interscope.

MFAWG: 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.


Hell no!!

She has always been a slightly goofy person and I like her that way. She and I are the same age and I think people should just be themselves right up until the moment they stuff you into an urn.

Rock on, Anabella. Here's to silly, middle-aged women!

*clink*

MFAWG: Lorelle: Peter Gabriel was New Wave?!?

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

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:
