List RulesVote up if you agree they've aged poorly.

Regardless of status, each and every one of us will eventually succumb to aging - if we're fortunate enough to live long enough to do so. Rockstars, unlike the everyday man, are known for living notoriously outrageous lifestyles of excess. While this may not be true for all rockers, it is certainly the case for many. Long hours, weeks on the road, after parties, numerous lovers, and an assortment of alcohol and party favors can take a toll on anyone.
