What Would Elvis Presley Look Like If He Was Still Alive?

Elvis Presley passed away 40 years ago, on Aug. 16, 1977, but his legacy is as important as ever. The King of Rock and Roll remains a vital influence on rock, country, gospel and soul artists the world over, and in the years since his untimely death, the mythology surrounding him has grown to epic proportions. It begs the question: What would Elvis be like today if he were still alive?

There’s no telling what kind of music the King would be making, or how many more movies and concert tours he might have given us had he lived. But now, thanks to a company in Florida, we know what he would have looked like at the age of 82. Sachs Media employed a Phojoe to come up with images depicting what various famous people would look like today. Phojoe usually creates artificially aged photos for missing persons reports, but in this instance, they used the same technology to render rockers like Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Presley today.

“Through this series of images, we hope to honor them and evoke some of the magic they brought to millions of their fans,” Sachs CEO Ron Sachs explains in a statement (quote via Ultimate Classic Rock). “Even as we ponder what wonderful new contributions they still could have made.”

The potential path of Presley’s career over the last 40 years is the source of much speculation at the Rock & Roll Heaven gallery at the Sachs Media website, but one thing’s for sure — though older, with gray hair and a face full of wrinkles, Presley’s familiar sneer still could have had him rocking into his 80s and beyond.
