Do you remember where you were when you learned about Robin Williams‘ death in 2014? Now how about John Lennon back in 1980?

“Only The Good Die Young” isn’t just a great Billy Joel song, it’s a sad truth in the music industry. We never forget these sad moments in history, and we’re left stuck wondering what life would be like if some of the greats were still around.

Nothing can bring our favorite musicians back from the dead, but the following awesome photos from Sachs Media Group might be the next best thing. They created the images below to imagine exactly what our angels in rock ‘n’ roll heaven would look like today…and we’re not just talking about Elvis sightings!

Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix might have all died at 27, but today they’d be in their 70s. Would you recognize them if you saw them on the street today?! These photos are eerily accurate, so get ready to have your world rocked…
