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.

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.

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.

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


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

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?
