Where Did Your Favorite Rock Stars Go?

Where Did Your Favorite Rock Stars Go?

We listened to their music, danced to their songs, and bought their records. But some of our favorite rock stars from the past have simply seemed to vanish. Here’s a look at what happened to a few of them:

  • Cat Stevens: Cat Stevens, who changed his name to Yusuf Islam after converting to the Muslim faith, returned to recording non-religious music in the mid-2000s. He has five children and lives with his wife in London today.
  • David Bowie: Bowie’s comeback in the mid-2000s was cut short due to health concerns. He died of liver cancer in 2016, leaving a legacy of interesting and cutting edge music.
  • Sly Stone: Sly and the Family Stone was a blazing hot group in the early disco era. Sly reportedly battled drug and alcohol issues through the 70s and his career came to a standstill in the 1980s. He has made rare appearances over the years, but has not returned to the stage full-time.
  • Neil Diamond: Diamond was a hit making machine in the late sixties and through the seventies and eighties. In his later years, he became more of a crooner and could fill an entire multi hour concert with his hits. Recently Diamond was forced to cancel his 50th anniversary tour as he battles with Parkinson’s disease.
  • Grace Slick: The former lead singer for Jefferson Airplane is credited with saying “Rock stars over 50 look stupid on stage.” True to her word, she has avoided looking “stupid” for decades. Now in her 70s, Grace focuses on her visual artworks and beyond appearing briefly at a Jefferson Starship concert almost 20 years ago, hasn’t returned to the stage. She does continue to make appearances based around her artwork.

As time marches on, the songs of our past continue to play a part in the soundtracks of our lives. Need a break? Revisit some old friends for a few hours by listening to some of the greatest hits of your youth.
