6 Aging Rockers Who Look A Lot Like Grandmas

6. Ron Wood – The Rolling Stones
You could probably put every one of the Stones on this list, but Ronny tends to get off easy because he’s always standing next to Keith “walking corpse” Richards and Mick “walking pair of wrinkled lips and other wrinkled stuff” Jagger. Either way, this man is two sagging feedbags away from a hysterectomy.

5. Phil Spector – Producer/(alleged) murderer
A little advice for Mr. Spector: If you’re going to wear a wig to your court appearance, don’t steal it from Estelle Getty.

4. Alice Cooper
When you’re an 18-year old rock and roll star, you need a bit of makeup to add those sinister dark circles around your eyes. When you’re a 60-year old recovering alcoholic with stringy hair who plays in Pro-Am golf tournaments all day long, those circles are there whether you put on makeup or not.

3. Roger Daltrey – The Who
In 1965 Roger Daltrey sang, “I hope I die before I get old.” He did not.

2. Tom Keifer – Cinderella
While this guy’s looks alone could land him in a “Musicians Who Look Like Trannys/Lesbians/Rip Torn/Sewage” list, it’s the fact that he is STILL clinging to the 1980s hair metal look that pushed him up this high on the list. If there’s one thing my grandmother shared with bands like Cinderella, Poison and Ratt, it was a love of long flowing scarves, oversized glasses and weirdly-shaped hair. (And herpes. But don’t tell grandpa.)

1. Simon Phillips – Toto (he was the drummer)
I didn’t think you could just waltz into any hair salon and just ask for “The Grandma.” But apparently when you’re the drummer for Toto, the rules don’t apply to you.

    How was Reo Speedwagon’s Kevin “Granny Perm” Cronin not on this list???
    I met him backastage a couple of years ago and I thought I was talking to
    Kevin’s G-ma and I realized it was Kevin himself!!!

  2. Balls McGee says:

    Simon Phillips also is not the original drummer from Toto. Plus he sucks and hardly counts as a rocker.

  3. John thomas says:

    Wow, this sucks. I thought for sure Mick Jagger or Rod Stewart would be on the list!

  4. george says:

    Umm… Toto never ROCKED

  5. Stagger Lee says:

    Hey guess what, everyone gets old. When they get old they look old. Mike’s right this is bullshit.
    Hey I have an idea for a website it’s called Beautiful Burrito and I’ll show babies that look like comic book characters, it’ll be teh awesome dude!

  6. Jesi says:

    Poor Rog. Back in the day, he was the ladies man, now he… is a… lady man (?)

    I don’t make sense…

  7. parker says:

    this is shit they all look fine simon phillips looks like he is 30

  8. Tyler says:

    quite a weak list… Steven Tyler?

  9. dave says:

    I agree.

    This is BULLSHIT!!

  10. I hate this article says:

    Roger Daltrey looks amazing for his age and looks nothing like an old woman. This list is lame and none of these rockers look like the pictures they are compared to. I want the two minutes back that you have robbed me of.

  11. Treadmarkz says:

    What, nobody is going to mention Steven Tyler or is that way too easy? Ok fine

  12. you suck says:

    man this is fucking bullshit get fucked, waste of my fucking time. they are fucking rockstars. what have you accomplished some bullshit blog. like i said. GET FUCKED.

  13. grodasy says:

    this is rediculous, the photographs look nothing alike especially the bloke from toto, what a crappy post

  14. Matt says:

    How could you make this list and not include Steven Tyler?

  15. the eye says:

    no Mick Jagger? WTF?

  16. Bono says:


  17. Anonymous says:

    What an idiot.

  18. Chris says:

    It’s funny to read all of the sad fanboy posts from every other asshole who worships whatever bullshit these “rock-stars” put out. Yes everyone ages, how profound Stagger Lee. The music these guys have made over the years was never in question it’s the ridiculous ways in which these guys attempt to pass themselves of as young that’s funny. And when you are that old, and you choose to where your hair in that manner with all of the dyes and ridiculous stylings, you look like a fucking grandmother. Get over it fanboys, the moment you can’t laugh at something that shouldn’t be taken seriously you are no longer capable of the independent thought and don’t give a shit attitude that made these guys great in the first place.

  19. Matt Kilby says:

    What about Robert Plant? He’s looked like an old woman for the past 10 years!

  20. Anonymous says:

    You’re retarded. Half of those people aren’t even old.

  21. sombody says:

    dudes just laugh and stop being bored

  23. Rokit says:

    we arent bored retard

  24. Age ain’t nothin’ but a number , think of all the old blues guys who set the bar in the first place.

  25. blahblahblah says:

    No, Toto never really rocked, but Jeff Porcaro was a bad mo-fo of a drummer… until he kicked from a “gardening incident” (aka coke OD). Grandma Simon couldn’t hold Jeff’s stick(s).

  26. Newt says:

    If the title were “Aging Rockers who look like the Marx Brothers”, Simon Phillips would be at the top of that list too.

  27. Mike says:

    this is bullshit!!!!!!

  28. quarrygirl says:

    fucking hilarious

  29. quarrygirl says:

    funniest post ever

  30. hornyoyster says:

    haha nice.

    i did a similar post a couple years back. funny shit. http://www.hornyoyster.com/?p=291

  31. barefoot jim says:

    Oh man, you totally missed Paul McCartney, who’s looked like a grandmother for years. (Guess being with Heather Mills will do that to you.)

  32. Buddy Ice says:

    Why does it look like the Predator is about to snipe that last old lady, the one next to Simon Phillips, in the face?

  33. Lola says:

    Ron Wood looks cooler than you.

  34. Assman says:

    Simon Phillips also seperated at birth from Tim Allen minus the dew of course…

  35. Chico says:

    Simon Phillips and Harpo Marx? Thats hilarious and uncanny.

  36. muzak says:

    and now some easy listening music for the aging hippie…

  37. asdf says:

    #1 sucked horribly

  38. Sanman says:

    You GRANDMOTHER FUCKER!!!!!!!!!!

  39. sentToMyMom says:

    But do they lack eyebrows?


  40. David says:

    Good list, but David Johansen from the New York Dolls should have been a shoo-in for no. 1

  41. jsmosby@tampabay.rr.com says:

    Do not ever send this to me again

  42. Treadmarkz says:

    What about Axl Rose? Plastic Surgery cannot cover the fact that he is a grandmother of rock.

  43. JJ says:

    Yeah-this post is for dicks to laugh at.
    Ronnie Wood looks great for his age.
    lets see if half you cunts are still playing to large crowds when you’re “old”

  44. Holos says:

    If you need to find some file in the internet, you should do it no longer by yourself, just visit http://newfileengine.com. It is a very interesting and useful file search engine. This search engine gives you opportunity to find all things you need, such as games, movies or soft. Enjoy it!!

  45. Rockinaxemike says:

    That’s funny, but don’t forget Brenda Vaccaro–I mean ROBERT PLANT! Yeah, it’s a weird phenomenon allright.I go to guitar shows and meet famous rock guitarists who sometimes try to remain looking the same as they did back when (Yngwie Malmsteen, especially so)
    But some accept reality and just wind up letting it go and look like the old guy next door who you see watering his lawn.
