The Monsters of Rock, painted as literal monsters

Bill Idol, Joey Ramone, Tommy Lee, and more rockers are transformed into mutant beasties in Jason Edmiston's Monsters of Rock paintings. Whatever radioactive substance made them this way has not been kind to Axl Rose.

I suppose someone who believes that rock music is the path to devil worship might actually imagine these rock stars as disfigured monsters. The rockers, for their part, look pretty comfortable with their tentacles and fangs.

If you're in the Long Beach, CA, area, you can swing by Phone Booth Gallery before May 8th to see the paintings in person.
