    Heart bassist's outfit makes him look like a cast member of Rocky Horror Picture Show at least to me.

    They had some daring fashion sense on stage in the 70s.

    That bass player looks ridiculous.

    Ann sounds great.

    Is the dude with the Les Paul Howard Leese? Sounds great, They all do.

    What was Nancy’s main contribution? Songwriting?

    Can't wait to hear your kids and grandkids talking about those fools that wore wool hats inside and skinny jeans!

    This was actually kinda a "Look" in the early 80s in NYC within the Hip hip community, BVD Shorts and T-shirt "Suit" style...A lot of my friends rocked this look for a hot minute.

    I honestly cannot fathom how he looked in the mirror and thought to himself: "this looks good, I'll go with this".

    They look pretty cool IMO. The haircuts look dated but that's it.

    These are crazier (but I still love them :p):

    His nipples look like eyes... I bet he isn't a real person and that head above his nipple-eyes is just a hat.

    My first thought was Chris Squire and his shiny capes.

    This guy is one of my favorite musician people... He's got a huge heart of love for music and the people that make it. He's put a lot of effort into his local communities in OH.

    ...and he just "retired" from touring/doing music in that way.

    He's about one of my favorite facebook follows - immensely positive man and I love that.

    The Sweet were delightfully tacky (I love all of the stuff from this era)

    If the bassist from Heart was wearing this, it would be worse. But the guys from Funkadelic are cool enough to pull it off:

    Elton was my immediate answer.

    GWAR were pretty funny.
