"New Wave Artists Aging Gracefully"  
I saw this link on Facebook, both posted by a friend and by Wang Chung----who I 'like'. There are no before pictures, but these folks are famous enough that you probably don't need them.

I still listen to most of these groups!

New Wave Artists Aging Gracefully---An 80s World Gone By.

Omg everyone is so old.

Holy shit Billy Idol.

On the flip side, I don't think Marc Almond has changed since the 80s... Roland Orzabal either. Annie Lenox and that other dude (never could remember his name) still look good too.

And Andy Bell (the one on the left in Erasure) is like so photoshopped in that pic it's painful. I love him, but he doesn't look like that anymore.

Yeah, some of these pics are pretty shocking, aren't they? I always imagine these people as their 80s selves, so when I see the Wang Chung guys or even Siouxsie Sioux older, I am stunned. And then I feel silly about it.
Alison Moyet of Yaz looks better now than ever, though.

What a great post! I can't believe I missed it. Thank you :D

Thomas Dolby, Andy McCluskey, Dave Gahan: Any time. Any place.
Alison Moyet: Goddess!
