List Rules Vote up if you agree they've aged poorly, vote down if you think they've aged well

Rock on, indeed! These are the rock stars who have aged the worst (and the best, if they are at the bottom of this list), ranked by the public. Vote thumbs UP if you think the rocker has aged poorly, thumbs down if they have aged well - this is a list of the worst-aged rock stars, but I went ahead and loaded up a lot of current rock stars including some who have aged quite well (Bon Jovi, anyone?).

Since rock stars are rich and in the public eye as performers, you'd think they would age a lot better than the general public. Ah, but the drugs and alcohol do take their toll, don't they? Feel free to add more rock stars at the bottom of the page, but the catch is you need to add a photo that combines "before and after".

Which old rock stars are looking a little worse for the wear? Which aging rock stars don't looking like they are actually aging? This list will help us all figure it out. You may think you'd love to have Mick Jagger's life (who wouldn't!?), but is all that partying and rocking worth it if you have to spend the rest of your life looking all sorts of haggard? Maybe! That's your choice!

When it comes to these rockers, oldest isn't necessarily worst. Just vote up the guys and girls who you think are looking a little rough in their later years.
