    I saw a thread about Robert Plant aging poorly just after watching some recent Duran Duran performances on YouTube. I was surprised to find out they are around 50 years old at the time of the clips. I really don't think they look quite that old-mid 40s maybe. Bucking a trend?

    The Boss still looks good, although no doubt he probably got some work done.

    Emmylou Harris - she looks like she's not trying to hide her age much, maybe she's had stuff done - I've no idea, but if she has she definitely didn't go overboard with it.

    Peter Hammill - the grey hair and lines tell his age yet he still looks pretty decent.

    That is a terrible picture. I just saw a Hi Def show from 2012 on TV two weeks ago and he looked great. I could not believe it. Maybe he had makeup on, don't know.

    If I looked like that at his age after years of touring I would consider it a miracle (looks great!), he's still just as much of a rock at the drums 2 (only one in the band that still sounds the same)

    Roger Waters has aged incredibly well for a 69 year old guy. This pic may be a few years old though.

    I used to talk with a guy in Brighton, UK who always claimed to be Winwood's cousin. Looked quite like him. He probably looks the same now, too.

    Sadly his voice hasn't, never had much range anyway though

    Who would have thought that Roger Waters would one day morph into Richard Gere?

    Regarding Robert Plant, people tend to age once they get over 60, maybe he isn't caught up in the trying to stay young brigade and there are plenty of those!

    Eric Clapton has aged very well!

    Bob Dylan on account of his continual artistic growth and for his exuberant expressionism on stage.
