Former Prime Minister, Tony Blair, is known for his college rock band, Ugly Rumours. What if they had gone on to have huge success, demanding all of his time and preventing him from pursuing a career in politics? How different would his life have been, and what would he be like now?
We are used to seeing our politicians in their formal suits, looking clean cut and well groomed, like they mean business. But what if they had gone down the rock star path and decided to pursue a career in a successful band? What would they be like? How would they look?
Intrigued by this question, we decided to consult a digital artist to put together impressions of what our top politicians would have appeared like if they had gone down the band route, and here are the results.
He’s the top dog at Downing Street, and we think he’d have taken his role as a rock star very seriously if he’d have chosen this path. He would have been the lead singer and front man, and the rock and roll life style would have taken its toll on his baby face.
We could see Ed as a long haired vegan rocker with a beard, and here is how he would have looked.
Clegg could have been in a rockerbilly band and his image would have consisted of leather, high gelled hair and sunglasses.
If Theresa May had joined a band, it would surely have been a punk band and she’d have gone for the full mohican, as depicted in this image of her here.
We’ve all seen Farage as a pretty convincing punk, but perhaps he’d have gone for an 80s perm instead, as shown here.
George looks like he hasn’t showered in weeks in this mock up and looks like he could have been in a second rate reggae tribute band.
OK, she’s not a current political figure, but she’s made the final cut anyway.
