Sachs Media Group chief Ron Sachs, a lover of rock 'n' roll, commissioned photo restoration and manipulation firm Phojoe to produce a set of 12 portraits depicting what deceased rock giants would look like today had they not died at an early age.
Herbie Thiele, SMG spokesperson, said Sachs is “one of five top managers at the firm who breathes rock 'n' roll.”
The 12 members of Sach’s rock 'n' roll heaven are John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Keith Moon, Elvis Presley, Mama Cass Elliot, Kurt Cobain, Dennis Wilson, Bobby Darin, and Karen Carpenter.
To Sachs, their influence was “perhaps as influential as any world leader.”
He hopes the images made to honor them “will evoke some of the magic they brought to millions of their fans, even as we ponder what wonderful new contributions they still could have made.”
