Famous Musicians Behind the Sunglasses

Ever wonder why some musicians hide their appearance always behind sunglasses on stage? Their mysterious looks are part of the persona, but some wear sunglasses so much that you never see them without. Here are a few I've selected for the spotlight.

Natural State: With Sunglasses

Seen in their natural state, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Slash, and Ozzy are happy rock stars doing their thing. Whether it be shyness (all have admitted to some degree of stage fright), vanity, or marketing, these rockers and their spectacles have become synonymous.

Unmasked: Who is Happy and Confident?
