What are yesterday’s rock stars up to today? More
importantly, how do they look? Ever curious and nostalgic, we decided to
check in with Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan, Chris Cornell and some of our
other favorite ’90s alt-rock superstars to see what they’re up to these
days. Many have weathered the years much better than you may expect.
Others, well … scroll through our list of ’90s Rock Stars Then and Now
and see for yourself.
Now: Grohl dons a sharp suit and skinny tie as frontman of the Foo Fighters.
He’s also a film director, drummer-for-hire, serial collaborator and
public speaker — and he still seems like an all-around likable guy.
4. Billy Corgan then was a cherub-faced rocker with short, boyish locks.
Now, the Smashing Pumpkins singer is an Uncle Fester lookalike who shaved his head for 1995′s ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.’
5. Time has always been on Beck‘s side. He looked boyishly handsome back in the ’90s…
… and now, the singer hasn’t aged one bit. Dude looks almost identical to his young self.
6. Then, singer Eddie Vedder was a reluctant rock star.
Now, the Pearl Jam frontman has aged remarkably well. If he still hates fame, he wears it better.
7. Then, Chris Cornell was the subject of many a schoolgirl crush.
Now, the Soundgarden singer turns more heads than ever, and his band is back in action. Does that mean no more Timbaland albums?
8. Then, Gavin Rossdale was the pretty-boy frontman of Bush.
He still is, although his wife, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt, remains his better half.
