Most of the greats died young, either by their own hand or as a direct or indirect result of their life choices. Sachs Media Group connected with photo retouching and manipulation experts PhoJoe to create portraits of deceased legends as they might look today. Bob Marley, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Karen Carpenter, Bobby Darin, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and others are presented in all their old, wrinkled glory on the Sachs Media Group website in a post titled "Rock & Roll Heaven: How they would look today." Most of the musicians included died in their 20s and 30s, with Elvis being the oldest at 42. It's nice to see them all with grey hairs and wise faces, even if it's only digital.
