For its 20th Anniversary, Q magazine pulled together 20 “musical icons” to grace alternate versions of its celebratory issue. Everyone looks well preserved (or agreed to some airbrushing), save a grizzled Keith Richards (time to quit smoking, Keef!). It’s a fun way to check in with UK’s taste for American pop stars, too: Madonna, Dave Grohl, Beyonce, the ever-enigmatic Stipe, and a lolli-sucking, preggers Brit. Covered all the bases, didn’t they?
Which of these faces matters most? Or just as importantly, who looks best (or surprisingly well)? This isn’t our official vote, but someone please tell us how Sir Paul looks younger than Dave Grohl.
