Here's a new visual "Just for Fun" thread.
Rules are very simple: post pictures of two persons (at least the other one being a musician, preferably known from prog circles) who look rather similar.
 
 
The other one can be an internationally famous person, or someone known only in his/her own country, or a non-celebrity that you know. Or even yourself, if you look like some musician. Big smile
 
 
We could make this double fun by not naming them immediately, ie. letting the next game-joining person to identify at least the other one. (If the other is not generally known, it's wiser to include his/her name right away.)
 
 
Here's the first pair, probably easy to recognize both musicians:

I always thought there was a certain similarity between these two iconic guitar players:

And what about the men in my posting?

These two guys are not musicians but German actors. There definitely is a similarity though.



The one on top is Alexander Schubert, the one below is Jörg Pleva.

Hints: What other Canadian band was often compared to Rush, even though their style was very different? Who is the John Denver of France? Who hid his ships on Galveston Island in Texas?

Neil Peart is correctamundo. Next up is Mike Levine, the bass player of Triumph. Then, you have Francis Cabrel. If you don't know him, listen to La Fille Qui M'Accompagne sometime. He's great when you just want something not too heavy to listen to. Next is the renowned French pirate, Jean Lafitte.

OK, here's a new pair. I guess no hints needed for the one in left, the other (R.I.P.) was a frontman in a British prog band.

That looks like a Gibson ES 335. They both look familiar but I'm struggling. This game is not as easy as I thought it would be.

Not Greg Lake, but really miss him and Keith Emerson.
Not Jack Bruce. Miss him too.
Not Allan Holdsworth. Yep ... miss him as well.
Not John Wetton ... miss him greatly.

Okay I'm getting depressed now.
