Rock of Ages

This is way cool.  A retrospective of the icons of rock. 

Saw this photo article in the Sydney Morning Herald and thought about how a pivotal generation of rock has passed.  I might sound like an old fogey but it sure isn't quite the same as it used to be.

The lineup chosen by SMH was a bit strange and I think someone there does not know the difference between rock and pop since the list also included Cyndi Lauper, Madonna and Michael Jackson.  I could not even bring myself to include the last one in this post.

Here's to the legends.  Rock on.

They sure gave lots of us Satisfaction.  Gather no moss, mates, keep gathering no moss ...

Hopefully they won't be climbing the Stairway to Heaven anytime soon.

Actually I think she should stop trying to act like a teen and start acting a bit more her age.  Think Tina Turner, honey, not Rihanna.  And no, I wouldn't have categorised her as rock - not sure why she was in this lineup.

I'm sorry but Queen died the day Freddie did.  Still tears me up when I see his picture.  Damn.

Ah, Blondie ... every male mate's fantasy.  And looking damn hot even in her 50s.  Take note, Madge!

I always preferred Bowie myself.

One word.  Fab.
