An amazing piece of journalism by the Daily Mail - they have discovered that 60s pop stars now look older than they did 50 years ago!

I am stunned. Whatever will they uncover next

DM got scientists to guess that Kate and William's child will be ginger.

The Pope is Catholic.
Bears leave a foul smelling brown stuff in the woods.
Women without make up and dressed in tracksuits tend to look a bit ropier than women posing on the red carpet.
Eating less and exercising more will help you lose weight.

I am SO grateful to The Daily Mail. I'd have no idea at all without them.

DM Wins the award of the year for a statement of the most blinkin' obvious! Gave me a laugh, though, OP.

Not Joan Collins though. She looks younger now than when she was in Dynasty. And all because she stays out of the sun

What on Earth happened to Leo Sayer?!?

I thought it a very witty piece to read - some of those people I thought were long gone!!

The lines under (photo captions) are not even witty.

One thing I noticed is that noses realy do seem to grow, uglier in some cases.

David Cassidy looks much the same facially. It's really because his 70s fringe has gone which makes the real difference. i also though Pete Townsend improved (slightly) with age but there's not a lot in it.

Where did they get that second pic of Leo Sayer?

Gilbert O'Sullivan's pic looks like a prison mug shot.

Phil Collins look okay imo, as does Brian May in his own way. Ditto Francis Rossi. Get over it Daily Mail, I bet you look worse at their age - with the exception perhaps of Leo. I'm sure that's not a fair picture though, at least I hope not.

Fair comparisons? On the whole, comparing studio lit photos of dewy youth against... I think not.

The Daily Mail's got to find something in order to generate hits on its website.

IIRC he has three.

Couldn't fancy him young or old. Too full of himself by far.

I would guess that David Cassidy's had 'work done' since that photo of him looking younger was taken.

It was a carefully chosen one. In an earlier article they showed the same picture

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...-hair-gig.html

He was pulling silly faces at the time. I thought initially he had some badly done lip job!

The rotters! But sadly, the DM does seem to be in thrall to Dorian Gray figures such as Sir Cliff. []

That an alleged newspaper actually requires proper journalists with real news stories.

Its the hamster cheeks that give it away, that and the frozen face.

I did think that about the David Cassidy one. I did love the fringe. I have a picture i drew of him, not at the time but later. I thought he was adrogynously beautiful.

I also had a booklet of David Cassidy photos, one in the bath. Thinking back now, I can't imagine where it came from. Arrest me!

The Sting picture looked like it was taken after a long haul flight as he is holding a passport in his hand so he was probably tired.

At least the Daily Mail are picking on men for a change rather than women but either way do they believe that celebrities are somehow cryogenically frozen to stay the same age forever?
