Seen an article on this recently, saying that he definitely had some work done, face left etc.. He does look younger than he did around 07/08. so is it true or is he just well rested?!
Also, if it is true, does it change any peoples perception of him?

Probably some (hair plugs & botox), but I think he aged naturally for a long time & genetics plays a big part of it as well. His mother is almost 90 & can still shimmy on stage. Hell, he's 62 & look like he's 20 up there!

Regardless, I don't think any idiot would stop paying to see him live.

He had his teeth fixed in the 80's. He's definitely had hair plugs. I reckon there has been some light tinkering but he's been sensible not to overdo it.

Teeth were fixed more recent than that. Compare LINYC to Hyde Park. The hair is definitely paid for too. No 60+ year old has a barnet as perfect as that.

He could look like a giant 6 Million Dollar Man action figure for all I care so long as the singing & music still sounds good.

No matter what he looked like, it won't change how I'd feel hearing a great performance of Thunder Rd or Incident etc etc

I would certainly think so. He looks a bit foolish for a 62-year old man.

I think Bruce has been blessed with good genes however. Surgery can only do so much.

I'm convinced he was westing a hairpiece during the Reunion Tour. The top of his head did not sweat. He also didn't jump into the crowd once. All sorted by 2002 of course.

I read some article a while back that specifically looked at the shape of his face and how it wasn't as triangular anymore, and I see it too. Hair plugs are pretty likely, and I hadn't thought about his teeth but the people above are probably right about that as well.

All that said, I agree he's been pretty smart and careful with his plastic surgery. It wasn't really needed and I probably wouldn't have done it, but as long as he doesn't do it to the point of being too creepy to look at, I'm not too bothered.

Bruce has definitely been blessed with good genes. Look how good his mom still looks. But also, Bruce never abused his body like most rock 'stars' do (drinking/drugs). He's made sure he's kept fit and has a personal trainer with him too. However, I do believe he is starting to show his age just a little...he is 62 after all. He still looks great to me though and if he had a few little cosmetic things done, so what. I would too if I were him and in the spotlight and doing what he does. And IF he did, he surely has not overdone it.

IF it is an 'if', it's not a big one.

His hair in 1999 was sweaty below a certain point. On top it was perfectly dry. Compare that the clip of BTR from '85 where it's soaked through. Look again. There's something not right!

There's no doubt that Bruce had a hair transplant.

Consider this video from 2001 and compare it to say the Magic tour:

I doubt it was a wig/hair piece. The same 'effect' of not sweating happens with a hair transplant.

But compare hIs hair in '99 to 2001. BIG difference.

Back in '88 he already had a little bald spot on top. No sign of it in '99. Add that to no sweat and I reckon it was a hairpiece brushed into his own hair.

This is one of my favourite subjects BTW

I showed close up pictures I took 18 months ago at the BFI, like the one in my avatar, to a Doctor who specialises in aesthetic work and she thought he had had a cosmetic peel (he has great skin) but not a face lift.




Hey Eddie, can you catch us a ride?

Does a cosmetic peel even count as plastic surgery? Seems pretty minor.
"In my dreams these nights I see you my friend
The way you looked back then
On a night like this
I know that girl no longer exists
Except for a moment in some stranger's eyes
Or in the nameless girls in cars rushing by
That's where I find you tonight
And in my heart you still survive."

Paul McCartney is a total health nut, has been for many years now and looks like he's ready to drop any minute. He has lost so much weight and looks frail. He is what just 7 years older than Bruce.

I'm sure like many have said, Bruce has had a minor bit of work on the hair and teeth but this is a guy who works out all the damn time, keeps his body in tip top shape.

Even if he has had some work, the fact that a 62 year old man can slide accross the stage, crowdsurf and perform 3 hours a night is almost unexplainable! He's a freak of nature and been blessed with good health. Look at him in The Wrestler video. How many other people in their late 50s look that good?

Agree. Any surgery has embellished not enhanced.

Hair? - prolly!

Botox & fillers ? He'll yes! A skilled aesthetic practitioner can administer these so that the recipient looks good but not totally frozen.

He may have lived a "clean" & relatively fit lifestyle compared to some, but the slightly heavy eyelids (which would require minor plasic surgery to "fix") don't match the rest if his face.

Do I mind? Hell no!! He is still sounding great, he can do what he likes!! :-)

What about a certain someones nosejob ? Has that ever been discusses here!? (not that I consider it to be any of my business!) peace!
