Something light to start your weekend?
I looked for a particular track from the eighties on You Tube. I found it, Kim Wilde's Cambodia if you are interested. It led me to another. Before I knew it, an hour had passed listening to eighties music. I had forgotten how good it was, well some of it.
Ah, the good old days, when men were real men, and wore makeup.
Pete Burns from Dead or Alive. Search for his photo now. He is a tragedy.
The less said about the present day Gary Glitter the better, but he epitomised glam rock. His look now is very different.
Melbourne's own Red Symons, back then from the marvellous band Skyhooks, now a breakfast radio announcer on ABC Melbourne. How did he become an old man?
Holly Johnston from Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Age may not weary them, but it doesn't do much for their desirability.
Adam Ant. He disappeared in the nineties. If you search for his present day photo, you may guess what he did for his lost decade.
Phillip Oakey from Human League. Balding, grey haired and just old, albeit trim looking.
Later thought. This is a boring post and I just know you won't bother searching for their present day photos, because you probably don't really care. So, I will do the job for you.
