Kate Pierson, of the B-52’s runs a bed and breakfast near the artsy-fartsy hippy-dippy towns of Hurley and Woodstock, NY. A one time PETA mouthpiece one of the major suppliers to her B&B is an, organic chicken and cattle ranch. Hey it goes against the principles she was touting, but a gal’s gotta make a living somehow. Besides at least the animals are slaughtered in an eco-friendly manner.

Wow! Make me feel old...

The Go-Go’s are looking pretty good, as are Banarama.

I see that Boy George and his ex-boyfriend are not in the same picture!

Nina Hagen looks like Michael Jackson!

David Bowie looks quite handsome, and Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles...well, I’m still jealous of her...LOL!

It doesn’t help that my husband has had a crush on her since he was 12.

Allison Moyet of Yaz relaunched her musical career a year or two back, sounds great, looks great. She was a very big gal in her heyday but is in shape, slim and attractive for forty-something now, still with the reverberating classically trained voice. It would be a nice show in a smaller venue if she were ever to pass through nearby.

i agree that The GoGos and Bananarama are still looking pretty good. The Bangles chicks aren’t too bad either. The rest of the females however.......WOOF!

My Gaydar was off the chart on half the guys in these pics.

New Wave artists aging gracefully.

Some of them are aging gracefully. Others look like they spend the last 25 years in a wood pulp masher and still think it's 1988.

Kate Pierson, of the B-52’s

The B52's did a gig in Tampa at the hockey forum plaza outside before a game. Part of the game experience is to hang out in the plaza (really nice area) to have a beverage and a (local) Cuban cigar (hand rolled right in front of you, it's pretty cool actually) . There's a large Cuban population in Tampa so their food and culture are part of the area.

Anyway Kate decided the cigar smoking was unhealthy and felt a need to inform everyone about it. She then started the song Love Shack with "Let's put out our cigars and paaaaarty!". Everyone was yelling back "shut up and sing!!!". It completelty rattled her. Was very funny.

Any list of gracefully aging 80's musicians without Joan Jett represented is simply bogus.

1981~1990 will long be remembered as a golden age for music, and all because of Music Television, the greatest advertising medium ever devised for music.

For those who were alive and over the age of 10, they can still likely remember dozens or even hundreds of artists, performers, videos and music from that time. The 1990s produced only perhaps a quarter of that much, and from 2000 on, likely fewer than a dozen in a decade, of variable quality, made it into the public consciousness with any staying power.

And Music Television Died because the music industry saw it as taking money from them, not as the superb FREE advertising medium it was. It was part of the music industries’ amazing ability to shoot itself in the foot, repeatedly, based on the idea that nobody else should ever be able to profit in any way from “their” music.

Daffy Duck-level greed.

But it was great while it lasted. Even if the majority of it was mediocre at best, it was a gold rush for music, and many artists the music industry would have never supported became hits.

I can tell you who ain't aging gracefully and that's Natalie Merchant. We went to see her in concert with... a local symphony orchestra recently and she was like a nutty little cat lady.

Totally affected by... something.

Sad to see Blondie getting so old. She was the epitome of cool at that time.

When I see celebrities, like Bowie, etc., looking that crappy--I know there are no plastic surgery, anti-aging options that really work. Unless you wanna look like Stretch Pelosi.

Some of them no longer with us, like Patty Donahue of the Waitresses (”I Know What Boys Like”, “Christmas Wrapping”)

I remember in the 70s MAD magaazine did a feature where they used photo retouching (these days it would be photoshopping?) showing the Beatles in their 70s. They didn’t know at the time John would die at 40 and George at 58

Debbie Harry was already well in her thirties when Blondie hit it big. I saw pictures of her back when she was a hippy chick in the 60s, and she was stunning back then.
