How different does your favorite band/artist look/sound compared to when they first started?

It had been awhile since I'd listened to "The Carpenter" by Nightwish, so I was listening to it again and I couldn't believe how different it sounded to their stuff being put out today. Tarja's voice actually ......kind of.....annoyed me in some parts. :O (Btw, the male singing in this song is none other than Tuomas). Not to mention how different she looked!

They all look so different! :P (And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, skip all that and just answer the original Q, lol).

Pics/songs to prove your point welcome.

Update:

Lol Rocco I know. xD I think it started around Once, if you ask me. Then the transformation was complete with DPP. Blargh that eye makeup scares me with him....

Update 2:

Yeah Rocco exactly (before we start to sound too much like "ew he's ugly, therefore his music sucks!"). Lol.

Yay for looking like Keanu Reeves. Not. O_O

Hey Pinstripes, the brunette in the last picture kind of looks like a male version of Sarah Silverman lol.

    My favorite band is Guns N' Roses, they look and sound VERY different to when they first started..

    (It's So Easy, their first single released)

    (Better, a song in their forthcoming album Chinese Democracy)

    I can't find a picture of the 'new' Guns N' Roses because of so many line-up changes, so I'll get pictures of Axl Rose, the only remaining original Guns N' Roses member.

    http://hardrockhideout.files.wordpress.com/2007/08... (Looking haggard in cornrows and football tshirts)

    Guns N' Roses has changed so much, I love the work done by the original line-up (axl/slash/duff/izzy/sorum/adler) but I'm not so sure about the 'new Guns N Roses', I've checked out the leaks from Chinese Democracy album, and they're not lookin' good.

    Source(s): Big big big fan.

    At one time I liked Journey. Their first three albums were great for me at the time and then they got Steve Perry to be their lead singer. The original Journey came from Santana. Greg Rollie was the singer in Santana, he sang Black Magic Woman. That song was a Fleetwood Mac song actually. Neal Schon was also a guitarist in Santana and formed Journey with Rollie and Aynsley Dunbar. I liked the first Steve Perry album with Journey and then they turned into a bunch of radio friendly girls. I can name many other bands of the same ilk but this one sticks out.

    Out of Sigur Ros, they all have stayed the same except for Jonsi...

    Old pic: http://www.sigur-ros. co.uk/images/laug11.jpg

    - Mohawk?

    Now... his hair is totally different. His fashion has changed as well. He wears these weird jackets.

    http://i191.photobucket. com/albums/z55/xoemmyxo/jonjon.jpg

    As for sounds, two things. First Jonsi's voice has matured greatly. And....the band is happy and more full of life. They have switched genres from post-rock to dream pop as well.

    Everclear's older music was much more angry and loud, when now it's, less. Still good though.

    The Smashing Pumpkins were more psychedelic and crazy and now they're more calm and put together, still a bit crazy. Also stiff good either way.
