Be it from good genes or good plastic surgeons, these best-aged rock stars prove that like a fine wine, they only get better with age. Not to be confused with the worst-aged rock stars, these rockers, many of whom saw the peak of their musical career decades ago, still look fine as they pass the age of 50, 60, and some even 70.

That's right, for every rocker that aged poorly (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Sinead O'Connor, we mean you), there are just as many whose looks stand the test of time and these before and after photos prove it. Rod Stewart, David Bowie, Roger Daltrey, Bruce Springsteen, and Eric Clapton are all over the age of 60 but still have that sexy we know and love.

For some, staying hot after the age of 50 is simply a matter of taking care of themselves during the years. Of course, it helps that these rock stars, both male and female, were pretty darn good looking to begin with. Others, whether they'll admit to it or not, have undergone a nip and tuck to help keep them looking fab. Many celebrities actually came out uglier after plastic surgery, but for the likes of Cher, Barry Manilow, and many others, a little facelift or other plastic surgery kept them young(er) looking and ready to continue their careers.

Few of these rock stars actually look as good as or better than they did when they were young but after all they are human. So take a look at these photos and decide: who is the best looking rock star? And what about that John Fogerty facelift? We'll discuss that with you in the comments section.
