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
