Richard III is practically a rock star these days, what with the discovery of his skeleton and recreation of his visage.  So that got me thinking, could I even tell Richard III apart from a rock star?  Since “Dracula or David Bowie?” turned out so well, I decided to give it a go.  For each image, guess if the image is a depiction of Richard III (in a movie or play) or if it is a rock star.

Who is rocking the page boy?  Richard III or a rockstar?

That’s not Richard III, it’s Davy Jones from the Monkees!

How about this guy?  Rock star or King of England?blog3

Psych out!  He may look like a rocker, but he’s an evil, murderous monarch!  (I promise, this is Richard III from a 2012 production at the Globe).

How about this guy?

Alright, I think that one was too easy.  It’s Kevin Spacey as Richard III.  But those sunglasses make him LOOK like a rock star!

Here’s a very regal looking personage – King of England or King of ROCK?

His band may have a regal name, but that’s no Richard – it’s the great Freddie Mercury looking fantastic.

I think the keyboard throne gives this one away. It’s Elton John!

Oh, snap!  Elton John again.  I could probably do this whole post just with pictures of Elton John.

Ok, you can do this.  Just a few more.  Who is this, Richard or rock star?

Despite the anachronistic remote control scepter, it’s Richard III again!

Ok, last one.  Who is this?
