It's Weird how some movie stars swim in the fountain of youth, but Rock stars age not as well

60 posts in this topic

Alot of those Hollywood people have all different plastic surgery procedures done and don't tell anyone about it.

As for some rockers, I think the hard drinking and drugging they all did back in their 20's catches up with them as they age. Even if you're a smoker you age faster than a non smoker.

Everyone needs to begin taking care of their skin at an early age, but many people don't do it and they get sun damage too.

Anyway, aging is a part of life and although you should try to take care of yourself, I don't think getting plastic surgeries is the answer. Many people look so fake and like dolls when they get stuff done. It's downright scary! lol

Look at Joan Rivers and Wayne Newton! lol

I think if Axl is doing something to take care of his lines, he better take care not to do too much. I think Axl will age okay. Most men do anyway.

I think Axl would look WAY better if the lost weight, lost the hat, the glasses, the raincoat, the mustache and didn't have that weird hairdo. IMO.

He needs to lose the bandana, the hat, the mustache and glasses and some weight. If he did all this and had just his long hair, perhaps with a stubbly beard or even a full beard, out he'd look good. In 2006 when he was a bit thinner he looked EXACTLY the same as the early 1990s except with braids.

I don't think his current hairstyle is weird. Long hair suits Axl more than braids or short hair ever did.

He's surely thinner now on this leg? Certainly looks it.

Pic?

Yeah, looks like he lost weight, but who told him that mustache and that hat looked good on him? <_<

The Rolling Stones, age 50.

Axl clearly aged better then them.

They all look considerably more...dignified than Axl there. And IMO, Mick looks way better than Axl does now.

I always likened Axl to Dickinson. Not so much now....Dickinson looks great. So does Springsteen....both older than Axl. Axl just doesn't have the genes. He has the small town farm boy genes....gets the "big face/jowel" and the gut.

Bad genes or not, I'm fairly confident he'd look better if he hadn't had work done. The anti-ageing procedures very, very rarely work the way they're intended. People who age terribly (but naturally) almost always wind up looking better than the botox brigade.

He didn't have work done. He just got fat.

Agree- I used to be on the 'he had work done' camp. Now I agree- he couldn't push the fork away or mix in a salad...too many donuts.

Now in 2006 he looked pretty much the same as 1994 and 1991 and was thinner...and in 2012 (bottom pic) he looks pretty much the same as 2006 except for a sagging jawline...That pins it down to...no, not surgery....Just too many roast lamb sandwiches and square melons

You're using that picture to argue against the idea he's had work done!?

He definitely looks morphed in the early 2000's but I don't really care.

If he had work done look out- another lengthy lawsuit coming.

I think the OP's theory is complete BS. I've always thought the opposite. If anything, musicians live lives with the least amount of stress. No reason to get lines or grey hairs. Look at Joe Perry at 61, he's only shown a little bit of grey in recent years. I'm in my 20s and I got grey hair.

The best example is Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth (the word Youth in the band name is just a coincidence).

Yeah....? It's an odd picture taken at an odd angle, but it matches up well with a similar picture from this year.

Also, ever considered video quality with regard to the basketball game? Even the guy who is interviewing him looks slightly blurred, his features. Everything in the video is softened a bit, it has to do with both the age of the video, the fact that it was compressed when uploaded to youtube, and the original quality of the video.

Like here:

The video isn't as sharp as a photo, or even real life, would be....

He's got fewer lines and wrinkles there than he had in 1993!?!

It's not exactly like he had a face full of wrinkles....

Well, he was 32 then! The fact that his skin looks smoother two decades later sort of supports the 'work done' theory.

He doesn't have fewer though...About the same.....

Also, it actually doesn't support the "work done" theory, Angelica. Everyone ages differently, for one. Secondly, everything can effect the way someone looks in a photo, lighting, the camera used, settings, etc...I've had pictures taken where I look like I have wrinkles here or there...and then adjusted the setting and done the same expression and looked more wrinkled, or less...Now picture that with all different kinds of cameras snapping pictures over a near 30 year period, using all different settings, in all different lighting and you're gonna get a lot of different looks...There's some pictures from say 1988 where Axl looks totally different than he did in 1993, and others from the same period where he looks the same. Not only that, take into account skin care, lifestyle changes, less stress, differences in diet, weight changes, etc...In 1993 Axl was either on or had just come off a massive and stress filled 2 and a half year tour, that's something significant to take into account. The pictures I've seen of Axl from 1995 and 1996 he looks much less wrinkled.

It's also not unusual for some people to just not wrinkle as much as others. I have a brother in law who's 43 and looks exactly the same as he did when he was 20, no wrinkles...And my mother looked the same at 38 as she did at 18, not a single line, and her father at 52 looked almost exactly the same as age 29 except fatter...None of them had plastic surgery or work.

Drinkers and smokers dont age very well. There's probably been a facelift somewhere along the line.

Smokers can actually age very well...All down to genetics, hygiene, levels of stress, general body care, physical condition etc...Lots of factors at work in how someone ages. There's some people for example, some men who are 70 but slap some black hair dye on them and they look 20 years younger etc.

Smoking is bad for the skin. Scientific fact.

...and his brow line in the nba video is a result of its poor quality...yeah, we're gonna have to agree to disagree here. :shrugs:

Tell that to my brother in law who has been smoking since he was about 15 and is 43 and looks the same as he did at 20...Who doesn't even have the money for surgery even if he wanted it.

My dad has jowls and wrinkles aplenty yet we have a professionally shot home movie where he looks like his face isn't at all jowly and he doesn't have a single wrinkle, whereas you look at photos from the same period, same day even and he looks closer to how he does in life.
