Long Live Rock & Roll

Courtesy of Advertising For Peanuts

"These print ads for Rockaxis Magazine are hard to comment on. They're eerie, sad, and glorious all at once. They're bold to say the least. For music fans, these images are their dreams come true, bringing life back into the dead. They makes you wonder what Jimi Hendrix would have been like as a Grandfather. But in the same moment they remind us how sad it is that we will never know. In the end, these images tell us that these late greats have grown up, aged and still live - through their music. It's rare that advertising stirs up such strong emotions and for that alone they're worth mentioning. However, some might feel like some kind of line has been crossed. What do you think?"
