7 Musicians Who Forgot To Grow Old
There are some people who just forget to grow old, Viridian health magic, vampirism and doriangrayish bloodlines aside. We’re giving you seven of them, all musicians – who didn’t lose their momentum and can still kick you ass with a B-side single. Here’s our pantheon of never-changing legends.
From rivethead industrial punk to Grammy-winner soundtrack composer, Trent Reznor is a Dorian Gray. It may be the dedication or the studio environment that keeps him forever young. We don’t really know but we’d really love to cohabit the same place with him. Have you heard the new album Welcome Oblivion of his latest project How To Destroy Angels?
Alec Empire put digital hardcore on the genre map, gave riot a new face, Berlin and London a blood transfusion and didn’t even break a sweat. Apart from the gigs, obviously. Now touring with his reformed old-new project Atari Teenage Riot.
Grace Jones hasn’t lost her inner punk child, either. That lady is made out of fire and steel and she can’t stop kicking ass during her winning streak of exclusive shows and cooperations. We’d give a lot of arms and legs and other body parts for her secrets on HOW TO KEEP ON ROCKING.
Speaking of Mike Patton, we’d ritually offer the same amount of arms and legs for the know-how of how not to choke on shoelaces and other tricks, too. And he’s a chaos magnet, too – still we’re happy he didn’t end up as an ambassador of jazz.
The octaveless sonic weapon of Hell and Judas Priest, Rob Halford (okay okay, King Crimson COULD be a contender, but we’re glad to give them a throne and dominion to rule together) who switched hair to tattoos to further illustrate the tsunami of fucks he simply doesn’t give. Legendary. (Is it just us or is he a walking Hellraiser reference?)
The queen of UK Goth, Siouxsie Sioux hasn’t turned one bit older and no, we’re not saying this because of the excessive makeup – she’s beautiful without it.
