Default Hiding in plain sight

So I was wondering who are some musicians that you think bear close resemblance to another musician, star, friend, etc...or visa versa

such as:
Will Ferrell is Chad Smith
Jeff Porcaro = Jeff Indyke
vs.
Bernhard is clearly Steve Gadd

etc...

I agree with all your example. Especially the Will Ferrell - Chad Smith connection.

I can only ever do this with people who I know in real life. Two of my classmates are just real dead ringers. One of them is a George Harrison look alike and the other Neil Peart. I would post some pictures but they might mind... Here's one of an actor:

Kris Myers of Umphrey's McGee



and Max Martini (Mack on CBS's The Unit)



I think Max's face is a little more chiseled.

P.S. There's a good reason Bernhard looks like Gadd. He is Steve Gadd!!

Right now I'm dominating this thread but... what I find interesting from your picture comparison, hawk, is that porcaro is playing vistalites!! Maybe it really is Mr. Indyke!

yep, that was one of those things that hit me like a 18 wheeler in the face...but an unexpected 18 wheeler. I just saw those two pictures one night and got to thinking. Someday I'll superimpose one over the other to prove it.

Now if we could just find Elvis...

And I found John Lennon while I was last in Florida. The pool man looked exactly like him + 30 years. Sadly, no picture.

2008 - 1980 =

We need to ask Gruntersdad to find John Lennon! He's been hiding out in the Keys this whole time!! I knew the assassination was a hoax.

No, I meant the one that died (supposedly) in 1980. Is there another John Lennon? Surely you didn't mean exactly 30 years, you can't tell someone's exact age by looking at them. Maybe we should stop assuming things about each other.

I don't know...those people at the fair who run that guess my age within a year game are pretty good at it.

And there was no John Lennon who was assassinated in 1980, he's working as a pool man in south florida now. Perhaps Jeff "Indyke" Porcaro can give us his phone number.


anyhow, in a few select pictures, Dave Weckl and Christopher Walken

OK, I'm resurrecting this thread. With this one you're gonna call me crazy. There is one majorly obvious difference, BUT somehow it seems to me like their facial expressions are remarkably similar.

Tony Williams and Steve Smith

You might not be crazy, although Mr. Clooney needs to grow his hair out a bit. I bet the ladies are all over Bernhard and Gadd!!
