Now that Peter Murphy of ‘80s goth heroes Bauhaus has been arrested on charges of alleged DUI, hit and run as well as narcotics possession (charges to which he’s pleaded not guilty), the singer has joined the fraternity of rock stars who boast mug shots among their press shots. Combing arrest reports, we’ve collected ten of the most famous, notorious and just plain bizarre rock star mug shots of the modern era.
Rock stars are known for getting away with murder, but we’ve rounded up ten of the world’s biggest sonic heroes who’ve found a way of snatching life back from the claws of the Grim Reaper to rock another day.
Rock stars are fashionable and arrogant, reckless and volatile, whimsical and theatrical. Not only are these great recipes for costumes, but they’re also perfectly acceptable behaviors for Halloween.
