Confabulat: Ha, I remember when I first heard Danny Elfman was writing the soundtrack for Pee Wee's Big Adventure and thinking that was kinda weird and fun, Oingo Boingo fits well with Pee Wee.

Never thought one day that's all he'd be known for. Bring back Oingo Boingo, Danny!


Danny says he'll never perform rock live again because the live performances were damaging his hearing.   I did get to see Boingo several times in concert back in the day and they were great.

He did conduct an orchestra playing his film scores recently, first time he had performed live in any capacity in decades.  unfortunately I found out about it way too late.  Hopefully he'll do it again some time.

I'm a fan of both boingo and his film music.   And he has a cute daughter.

Lsherm: unfarkingbelievable: Why do men's upper lips disappear when they get older?

Everyone's does.  Women just get collagen implants to hide it.


I know ... you're right. But I'm wondering why that is, what causes it. It's a dramatic difference on a lot of people.

At the risk of sounding like a beauty product commercial, it's because the skin loses its internal fat and its elasticity as it ages.

Thanks for making me realize that the 80's were over over Subby.

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.


This.  Peter is still an amazing and contributing performer.  You dweebs are not worthy.

Lorelle: Peter Gabriel was New Wave?!?

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


Middle Wave then?

He will never be clean again. Or under 16 stone.

What's funny is that as Peter Gabriel is becoming Burl Ives, Limahl is becoming Peter Gabriel.
 
2013-11-27 04:13:48 PM  
A couple of notes. Kate Bush - wtf?!  Bananarama - would still totally hit! Thomas Dolby looks 35, for chrissakes. Simon LeBon looks very "tally-ho. 'ol chap.
 
2013-11-27 05:32:57 PM  
I bet those who still look good are the vegetarians.  The others spent the last 30 years enjoying themselves.

show me: That can't be Adam Ant. It just can't. Not Adam Ant.

/Maybe Robert Plant


I know. He's what hits me the hardest. He was *smokin' hot* back in the day. I haz a sad.

I approve. My favorite band from the 80's and my favorite male singer. Spent a lot of time listening to them, great sense of humor. If you only know Danny from soundtracks and Boingo from "Weird Science" do yourself a favor and listen to their other stuff. It's all pretty great and a lot of fun.

Thank you, subby, I mean it.

Also, starting a little guessing game on my FB feed right now.

Rick Astley was in no way New Wave.

mafiageek1980: Gulper Eel: suebhoney: Peter Gabriel may not look so great, but he still kicks ass in concert.

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?

I would LOVE that! Seeing Genesis in concert is on my bucket list. Although, it sucks that Phil's health prevents him from playing drums :(

And like someone said earlier, PHIL looks more like Bob Hoskins rather than Peter

Phil looks more like Donald Pleasence in that shot.

stellarossa: I can say, Peter Murphy looks like he's spent zero years aging.

Not so much.


And recently arrested while driving a Subaru Forester around LA. I thought he'd move off the grid in Turkey.

That's just a bad shot of Billy Idol.  There is no way he's gone that far downhill in just 4 years.

stellarossa: dr_blasto: Confabulat: swahnhennessy: Kate Bush needs to stop trying to look like Robert Smith.

Robert Smith should stop trying to look like Robert Smith.

Oh, this. That picture just looks sad.

The bananarama duo, oh my. Also to Aimee Mann, even with the odd teeth.

I can say, Peter Murphy looks like he's spent zero years aging.

Not so much.

I'm impressed that it was actually a decent list

/still good.


I just saw Wire last week. Great. Got to meet Colin too. Very cool guy. Always have liked them since I saw their show in the late eighties. A Bell Is a Cup... Until It Is Struck. Everyone should go listen.
 
2013-11-28 12:16:07 AM  
Morten Harket (Aha) is still looking good. Holy moley.
 
2013-11-28 02:10:01 AM  
Thomas Dolby looks great! His skin isn't wrinkled at all.
I just about fell out of my chair at Adam Ant though...and Robert Smith really needs to lose the look. He's too old and pudgy.
