Pleased To Meet Me
Separated at birth.
In Folklore and fiction, a doppelgänger is a paranormal double of a living person, usually representing evil, mischief, or misfortune. In modern times it’s used to refer to any double or look-alike of any person.
They are out there, and you may have one yourself.
Same in the world of rock and roll. There are several.
Now this is not meant to be mean-spirited, just eerie and kind of funny. But this whole subject came to me when I realized that several rock stars looked a whole lot like people who couldn’t be rock stars if they tried. Or could they?
If they look so much alike, then it’s all about attitude and how you carry yourself. There may be a lesson there….
Let’s take a look a few:
Yeah, Don Knotts and Mick Jagger. They look alike. But I just cannot for the life of me see Barney fronting the world’s greatest rock and roll band. Although rumour has it Don WAS a ladies man, which is also hard to believe…
Okay, I mentioned this one to somebody and he looked at me like I was crazy. So I’ll put a few up to prove my point:
Bono and Robin Williams could be brothers, am I right?
Okay, his is kind of mean, but I have said before Robert Plant should get a haircut….
Paul McCartney has a couple.
Paul and Angela Landsbury. People say they look alike….Maybe a sister?
And Barack Obama’s mom looked a good bit like a young Paul:
David Crosby and Belle’s father from Beauty and the Beast. They had to get inspiration for the cartoons from somewhere….
Jim Morrison and a young Chevy Chase. If Jim had lived we now know what he would look like. Sometime it’s good to go young and beautiful:
Okay, most people who had perms in the 80’s had a poodle-do going but Stevie Nicks really pushed it:
John Lennon and Harry Potter? The older Harry gets….
Keith Richards and a Sphynx cat. Sorry.
Know any other rock and roll doppelgängers?
