At the height of the Beatles' youth and fame, an artist imagined what the Fab Four would look like "When [They're] Sixty-Four." Unfortunately only two of them made it to age 64, as George Harrison and John Lennon died at the ages of 58 and 40, respectively.

The artist got it right, kind of. George Harrison looks like a conquistador and Paul McCartney is more trim in real life. John Lennon resembles a circus ringmaster while Ringo's facial hair looks less than desirable. Poor Ringo, he's had more than one unfortunate moustache moment but he's never attempted the absolute disaster that is known as the soul patch.
