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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

His son Simon's a pretty fair drummer. And there's always Chester Thompson.

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.

My second thought after the obvious "crap, I feel old" thought.

Aging gracefully as a rockstar is perhaps tougher than any other career. Except hooker I suppose.

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?

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

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.
