I just zipped by Bri's Soapbox to see what's new...and the "cast picture" astounded me...
HAS BRIAN GAINED WEIGHT FINALLY????
He looks heavier than in recent photos...is that a double chin I see? And check out the midsection -- A GUT?? An actual, real, middle-aged spread?? On our Brian??
*sigh* he's only human....

It's funny. Roger says in GVH2 about 'look how skinny we were then'. I thought it was amusing. I'm betting John's the only one that hasn't put weight on...well Freddie took off a lot of weight...must weigh about 2-3 kilos? heh..


But I know what you mean. Soon he'll be playing the guitar with an assistant monkey.

Awwwww... poor Brian lol... I always thought he was too thin... maybe he just looked thin because he is so tall... my favorite friendly giant... how tall is Brian?

On another note, I noticed Roger looking thinner lately, especially in the cast picture.

Brian is about 6'3" or 6'4",I believe.

Really? I thought he was 6'1, maybe 6'2. I could be wrong, though. His hair throws things off a bit.

Oh my GOD! THAT was funny!!! But, Roger is "Brian's little dwarf"... Oh! You mean an ACTUAL monkey... My mistake!

It looks like Roger's had a nip/tuck around the chin and eyes. I haven't seen him look this good in years!
Brian definitely needs to consider plastic surgery. You could pack a suitcase with the bags he's got -- then again, it's probably hereditary, his dad had the same problem.

You actually think Roger's had plastic surgery? I think he's lost weight but didn't think he'd gone for a facelift... ugh...

I knew that Roger had definately lost some weight, but surgery? Does anyone have any good close ups? Urrrrgh, I hope he hasn't gone all stretched out like Axl Rose. *vomits*

Brian's doing pretty good, considering.

I wonder if Roger's quit smoking or drinking (old habits DO die hard, don't they?). I worked for a plastic surgeon several years ago and it definitely looks like Roger's had an eye/eyebrow lift. The chin looks like the wattle's gone beneath, so maybe a little tuck there.
I know they're near sixty, but sixty is the new fortysomething, and Bri and Rog aren't done yet! The stress Brian is under is certainly starting to take its toll in his face and appearance. I pray his marriage is in good straits.
(BTW -- Axl Rose HAS had a complete facelift and he's only a bit past forty, right? Looks nothing like the old Axl!)

Yah. Definite bags for Bri, and the monkey comment was great. :) Hm. Didn't pay enough attention, but maybe Roger has done something. (I thought Brian was 6'1". Hair.)

Well, we all relax a bit with age ... but sometimes we simply get better (like wine). :)

This is so strange....there was another recent picture of Brian on his website and he looks thin again...
Is Brian being funny and starting to "digitalise" his pictures the way Capitol Records did to hide Ann Wilson's (of Heart fame) excess baggage in the 80s? They made her hair big too...

Well, people do often gain weight when they age. Our Bri is pushing 57. He's not so young anymore :)

Imagine having the same hair for 30+ years! But I can't picture Brian without his hair. Even in the early Smile pictures, when his hair wasn't full-grown, he looked so...naked! :D

I wonder how much of it is really his hair...or did he have extensions put in? His hair is really massive (and this sounds bad but with age most people's hair tends to thin out a bit) -- it looks fluffier every time I see recent pictures of him with Roger, whose hair looks the same also!
