20 Rock-Stars Separated At Birth


Imagine what it would be like to meet your doppelgänger? Maybe you’ve never thought about it, but every one of us out there has had that moment when you say to yourself:  “Mmmm, that guy totally looks like the singer from that band!” Or even more crazier: “hey hold on a minute, that guy’s dog looks like a dead-ringer for so and so!” With that in mind, here are 20 of the funniest, and in some cases, most bizarre rock-star look-a-likes.

Bono and Robin Williams:

Without the picture, you might think this one is a stretch, put them both side by side and you’ve got a match.

Jimmy Page and the Quaker Oats fella:

Spotted while listening to Zeppelin 1 and eating porridge, we can never look at the Quaker Oats container again without thinking of the guitar maestro.

Ozzy Osbourne and Penny Marshall:

The prince of darkness and the late Penny Marshall look pretty much identical don’t you think?

Jon Bon Jovi and Kevin Bacon:

You’d be hard pressed to tell these two apart when you put these pictures side by side.

Chad Smith and Will Farrell:

The Chili Peppers drummer and Will Farrell could easily pass as real brothers and not ‘ahem,’ stepbrothers when you put them side by side.

Mick Jagger and Don Knotts:

One of those ‘not a chance’ comparisons until you put these two unlikely faces together.

Keith Richards and Hoggle:

Staying with the Rolling Stones theme here, Richards totally looks like Hoggle from the movie Labyrinth…

Jared Leto and Jake Gyllenhaal:

This is another one of those look-a-likes that at first seems far-fetched. Put the pictures side-by-side though and it’s a no brainer.

Gene Simmons and Muammar Gaddafi:

Just look at the picture, nuff said…

Thunderbirds’ Parker and Noel Gallagher:

Parker may be a puppet from a popular 1960’s sci-fi show but hey, if Liam wants to get the Oasis back together and Noel says no, perhaps Parker could step in in the meantime.

Sammy Hagar and chef Guy Fieri:

Another one of those that needs almost no explanation, plus Sammy loves to cook… Mmmm.

Tilda Swinton and Thom Yorke:

This may be an older picture of the Radiohead front-man but you have to admit it’s pretty darn close.

Ringo Starr and Yasser Arafat:

Seriously, if you had Ringo wearing a keffiyeh (a traditional Middle Eastern headdress) you’d have to look twice to tell them apart.

Roger Waters and Richard Gere:

Yet again, without the side-by-side comparison maybe you’d never think about it. But side-by-side it makes you think, right?

James Hetfield and the Cowardly Lion:

The Metallica front-man looks just like this Wizard of Oz character when he’s in full roar.

Stevie Nicks and a random goat:

Ok, so this one is stretching it a little bit, but you have to admit, it’s pretty funny?

Mickey Dolenz and Terry Gilliam:

These pair look pretty darn similar when you put the two next to each other.

Anthony kiedis and random Horse:

We couldn’t resist. You may say ‘ney,’ but this 80’s era photograph of Kiedis makes him look like the mane man…

Flea and Goldie:

Flea has one of those ‘one in a million’ faces, but we couldn’t help but notice the similarity when you put a picture of English musician and DJ Goldie next to him.

Pete Doherty and Crazy Harry from the Muppets:

Last but not least, Babyshambles front-man Pete Doherty. We have to say, he really has an uncanny resemblance to the Muppets’ resident pyrotechnic expert Crazy Harry.
