Marcella Detroit is looking pretty good for someone who will be 67 next month.

A wonderful advert for the preservative qualities of heroin.

There are probably enough examples to warrant a separate thread in itself, but smack does seem to be a sort of elixir of youth for some, doesn't it?

Anthony Kiedis is 56 so he's hardly ancient, but he has a sort of glow about him that you wouldn't necessarily associate with being a middle-aged former junkie. Although the 'tache and glasses he's been sporting of late make him look a bit like a creepy college lecturer.

I think a lot of it is down to these ex junkies living extremely clean lives and getting into fitness after rehab. No fags, drugs, booze or junk food would give you a decent glow I'd say.

Stephen Pastel's pushing 60.

He's not really changed that much on the last 40 years.



Yeah, that's quite remarkable, he's barely aged at all. I often see him knocking - shambling? - about Mono in Glasgow, and he could pass for a bloke in his early to mid forties. Stuart Murdoch looks good for his age too.

I wish I was a fey Scottish indie musician, I'd probably look 15 years younger than I actually am.

And as good as Stuart M may look, I feel that we're going to be seeing a lot more photos of him wearing hats.

Different (and far superior) Joyce (pronounced Joyc-ee as they do in Brazil). Had better album covers, too.

Giles Peterson used to champion her in the early 90's - she had some fantastic albums IIRC.

There was one track that used to get played at all those kind of do's, can't remember the title though.

Could well have been this one.

Edit The Wikipedia entry for the album confirms it was this (I remember the cover from my friend's record collection - she was beautiful), thanks for posting.

Terry Hall has aged a fair bit since I last really looked at him but he could easily pass for a decade or two younger than 60.

Jarvis on the other hand..



Nah, he looks alright too, his fringe is just getting a bit too thin for that look

Oh sure, Stuart M has been balding for years. He doesn't look like a man in his early fifties, though. And I shan't hear a word against dear old Duglas...

Yeah, Jarvis just needs a more flattering haircut. He's in good, skinny nick for a man of his age.

Brian Wilson doesn't look too terrible in 2019 considering how fucked up his mental state has been this last 40-50 years. Although I may just be thinking about that great head of hair he has.



For reference, this is how he looked at the start of the 80s

Oh and Pete Wylie is one who definitely isn't ageing well. I had a pint with him the other week and he looks like he's about to burst.

Liver as big as Hartlepool, as Julian Cope said.

Nelson Angelo Y Joyce is one of my favourite Brazilian albums.  Nelson's arrangements are terrific, but Joyce made the thing absolutely dreamy.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m9X6vnyKYuA

I often see Jarvis Cocker, walking his dog in Ravenscourt park or getting off the tube at Ladbroke grove. Paul Weller looks good, saw him at lunch time on Portobello.


Ok cheers

Weller's got the ruddy complexion of a serious boozer now. Topped off with that white hair - shocker. I wouldn't say he looked good at all.

The bar manager in my old local was a jam fan, she'd have been in her 40's, she had peroxide hair and used the sunbeds so much she was verging on mahogany. As she got older her hair got a shorter and she started looking scarily like her idol Paul Weller.
