Ever wondered what Kurt Cobain would look like if he was still with us today? Me neither, but the Sachs Media Group and photo restoration company Phojoe apparently have, and they went out and composed a current-day rendering of the late Nirvana frontman and a few other famous rock and roll stars. Described as a “heartfelt tribute to the memory of beloved artists who helped shape generations of music fans, in order to keep their memory alive for future generations”, the gallery of wrinkly rock stars seems fascinatingly accurate, which is totally disconcerting (because they almost all look like complete shit.) Jim Morrison looks terrible. Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix on the other hand seem to have aged relatively well. Kurt is still wearing flannel. Others in the gallery include Keith Moon, Janis Joplin, Elvis, John Lennon and Dennis Wilson. Head over to Sachs Media Group’s website for a rundown by experts on why each rendering looks as is does today.
