NAME: Dead Rockers, Modern Times
AUTHOR: Butcher Billy, a graphic designer from Curitiba in Brazil.
DESCRIPTION: How would rockers from the past react to 2012 technology? Would they have an iPhone or be Instagram enthusiast? Butcher Billy gives us the answer with this series showing us Kurt Cobain, Johnny Cash or Freddie Mercury handling modern devices.
AMUSEMENT RATE: I love how the Ramones endorse the most popular social networks by wearing Pinterest or Facebook T-shirts. How punk is that! Butcher Billy did a great job with these photomontages, it’s quite hard to tell that the pictures are fake. He should continue the series, we’re now waiting for images with Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin.
