Scientists posing with Rock stars..... nice on paper, but in pictures

I don't know - you be the judge.
I guess I'll count this as science and art.....   unfortunately, I find this a little bit of science and sad. 

the worst part is there is a big pause of "WHO???"  not just for the scientists - but the musicians.  I mean - I'm familiar with Debbie Harry (LOVE), B.o.B., and I BARELY remember the Wilson girls....  but these are not people I associate with science or ....  well, it doesn't make me want to pick up a microscope that's for certain.

my advice:  
Science - you are beautiful and rockin' just as you are.  You are my rock star.  never change, and never do something like this again.

these images come from the article:
