We have all been there: an elevator in a doctor's office, flipping through Sirius channels in the car or dining in a quiet restaurant. Suddenly a song begins to play that takes us back in years to a distinct moment in time. Without a doubt, music helps define the different periods in our lives.
For some of us the music from the late sixties and early seventies brings to mind the quintessential rocker with the long flowing hair, machismo attitude and endless guitar solos. It also brings to mind unforgettable classics such as Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven", Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" and Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA". Who can forget Aerosmith's "Walk This Way", or ZZ Top's "Tush"? Certainly no one who came of age in the seventies.
While some of our beloved rockers are still around, others seem to have disappeared from the limelight and faded away into rock and roll history. Rockers such as Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons appeared a few years ago on their own reality television shows and Dee Snider from Twisted Sister appeared several times on the Donald Trump production, Celebrity Apprentice. Still, one can't help but wonder where have all the rockers gone? Below is a list of some of the most famous rock and rollers of our time and an update on where they are today.
10 Robert Plant: Led Zeppelin
9 Steven Tyler: Aerosmith
8 Peter Frampton: Humble Pie
7 Grace Slick: Jefferson Airplane
6 Dennis Deyoung: Styx
5 Alice Cooper
4 Bruce Springsteen: E Street Band
3 Roger Daltrey: The Who
2 Eric Clapton: Yardbirds
1 Mick Jagger: The Rolling Stones
Possibly the most famous rock and roller of all time, Mick Jagger has withstood the test of time and has been loved and adored by generations for over fifty years. Aside from his musical achievements, Mick has been in the news many times for personal issues such as his many romantic interludes, drug problems and on again off again feuds with fellow band members. Mick Jagger is still very much an entertainer. The Rolling Stones will be kicking off their 14 On Fire 2014 tour in Australia in October, which had been rescheduled due to the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott.
