You Know What's Depressing?

Flipping channels and I see recent (relatively) recorded live footage of a band I saw live-in-person in 1985. There's something deeply disturbing about seeing a guitarist who looks like a present-day Anthony Perkins, in full "retired banker who's strapped on a guitar three-piece suit" mode. Or worse, changing into granda-wearing-grunge mode after a break. At a certain point, rock stars either need to evolve to something better suited to their age, or retire.
Side note: Geddy Lee is one of the few who can carry his age well; unfortunately this is due to the fact that he has always looked like someone's grandma since his twenties. Let the hate begin.
