Album cover art for aging rockers is tricky business

I’ve recently been fascinated by the number of (*ahem*) older artists who are still putting out new material.  Huzzah!  However, a conundrum may occur when trying to decide on an appropriate album cover.  What’s an aging rocker to do?  Pretend they’re still hip and hot?  Embrace their agedness?  Skirt the issue altogether by not featuring an image of themself?  I’ve seen it all in my day, or at least in the past few weeks.  Here are a few seasoned artists’ album covers in sequence from youngest to oldest.  Let’s see how they decided to handle this tricky situation.
