No, this is not a pic from the set of "Pirates of the Caribbean."

This is pretty lame. For one thing, many of these men are quite advanced in years. Secondly, most of these guys were never pretty to begin with. Any sex appeal you can attribute to them is/was based on their persona and artistic talent. On top of that, most of these, including the Marilyn Manson pic, are REALLY crappy pictures. The subjects are in unflattering poses with crap paparazzi/flash lighting vs. the professionally taken pics of when they were younger. Lastly, blaming drugs and alcohol for the appearance in the "after" pictures is just silly. Bowie did just as many drugs, if not more than anyone pictured here and he still looks effing amazing. I'm sure a couple of these people would look a little better if they'd taken better care of themselves years ago, but don't be ridiculous.
Billy Idol, Bob Dylan, and James Hetfield don't belong on this list. Hetfield isn't even all that old in comparison, but either way, he still looks good. Billy Idol's look works for him, and Dylan is in his 70's! Come on.
The author was joking--it's called sarcasm.
James Hatfield looks great! He's not overweight, in reasonably good shape, not sporting long scraggly hair that says "I'm still 21, can't you tell?!'" On the other hand, Axl Rose, Steven Tyler and Keith Richards look like abortions.
wow...I thought it was \"Blix\" from the movie Legend...lol
I'm 64 and I probably look like crap compared to what I looked like when I was young. It's called aging. Yes, I'm getting old but it beats the heck out of dying young.
They all look better than Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison look these days :P
Bob Dylan's voice is hardly "beautiful" or "soothing". It'd be more accurately described as "nails on a chalk board". He couldn't carry a tune in a brand new bucket. That isn't to say he's not an excellent songwriter, cuz he is. He just cannot sing.
Missed the sarcasm bus, didn\'t we?
I can think of one veteran rock star who still has a face like an angel and a voice to match -- Mr. David Bowie
I like to see some of the ladies of rock/music. Matter of fact, ladies rock or music, that are current wtihout makeup and all the glamm. I bet some look h.....ble
Lame list. They all look great for their age.
