Sadly, time and time again it’s been proven that a lifetime of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll may be fun while it lasts, but it can leave you with physical changes that you’re stuck with for the rest of your life. For example, these 20 stars of the rock genre were hot as hell once – but though all of them are still talented, they also all serve as a reminder that no-one stays young forever, not even a god of rock.
20. Axl Rose
Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses was once a rock superstar, and an undoubtedly gorgeous one. But now, unfortunately, it’s clear that a lifetime of excess has affected both his voice and his physique. And he knows it, too. In fact, in 2016 the rocker even attempted to get an uncomplimentary picture of himself pulled from the web.
19. Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger’s strange beauty was once legendary. But now, after decades of the rock lifestyle, the Rolling Stones star knows that he’s become old and now needs some pharmaceutical assistance to keep going. “You start out playing rock ‘n’ roll so you can have sex and do drugs,” he admitted during a 2012 appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. “But you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock ‘n’ roll and have sex.”
