Childhood portraits of famous musicians before they became stars (11 photos)


Well known musicians can seem to be creatures from other Universe, like if they somehow managed to escape a life in this world. It is easy to forget that they the same way as others had a childhood with a pubescence period and silly school photographs long before they learned how to sharpen their skills.
This small collection of photographs consists of rock stars portraits. You can see Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, John Lennon, and Bjork in their childhood on them. Looking at this photographs, it is impossible to understand why these people got the fame. Unlike their musical characters, they wear the same school uniform and haircuts as all the rest.
Comparing the childhood photographs with images from later periods, it is clearly seen that some people developed their characteristic traits from the very early age, especially Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. Even when he was a child, he had such unforgettably expressive lips!
