When a person dies young, we always wonder what they could have been, how the world would have been different if they were still alive, and what they would look like if they grew to an old age. Sachs Media attempts to answer these questions for some of the greatest rock musicians of all time. Was it their short lives that made their impact on the world so powerful or could they have done more if they had more time? Partnering with photomanipulation company Phojoe the media company created age progressions to show what rock legends Bob Marley, John Lennon, Dennis Wilson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, ‘Mama’ Cass Elliot, Keith Moon, Bobby Darin, Karen Carpenter, Kurt Cobain, and Elvis would look like if they were alive today. Then they asked expert musicologists Dr. Reebee Garofalo and Elijah Wald to give their best insights as to what these stars might have accomplished if given the time.

The beautiful thing about music is that it never dies and these artists who were taken too soon continue to inspire the world with their songs and talent. See the rest of this collection along with a quick biography of each musician and expert insights about what they might have been doing had they lived to see today, check out Sachs Media Group.
