He may have been gorgeous in the 70s but that was 40 years ago. Anyone who still looks good forty years later is a little scary.

Watched a good doco about the Sound City Studio the other day and it heavily featured Rick.  wub.gif

And DH reckons Rick's has lots of surgery.  I think he's just aged fairly well ( maybe a little work)

Yep, he was great in that. He really is a bit of a sex addict. I highly recommend reading his book 'late, late at night" it is a very, very honest account of his life. I would love to know what the secret is, he and his wife have stayed together after all his cheating and everything.

Just looked at the link - oh my Val Kilmer has not aged well. The others are not too bad. original.gif (says the girl that does not look like a supermodel! wink.gif )
