Here’s How Some of Rock and Roll Legends Would Look Like Today If They Weren’t Dead

So many musicians have passed away too fast over the past couple of decades. They left their fans heartbroken, listening to their music until today. Regardless of your taste in music, chances are you remember when the news cycle covered one of their deaths. You are probably constantly thinking about what they could have yet created if they hadn’t died. Unfortunately, we cannot possibly know that, but what we could do is imagine what they would look like today if they were still alive.

Elvis Presley – Jan. 8, 1935 – Aug. 16, 1977

The King of Rock and Roll, who died in 1977 at age 42.

That’s exactly what the Sachs Media Group set out to do with the project you’re about to see. They have teamed up with photo restoration and manipulation company Phojoe to create speculative portraits of what rock and roll’s greatest musicians might look like if they were still alive today.
