Classic Album Covers with Dead Musicians Photoshopped Out

The Tumblrsphere may have offered us an endless supply of time-wasting entertainment last year, but what has it done for us lately? Well, allow us to introduce you to the first Tumblr to win our undying love in 2012: LIVE! Created by Jean-Marie Delbes and Hatim El Hihi, it features classic album covers that have been Photoshopped to remove any musicians who have died. The result is surprisingly unsettling — lonely Tommy Ramone with his back against a brick wall, David Johansen and Syl Sylvain’s downcast gazes on the New York Dolls’ self-titled debut taking on a new, mournful meaning. Page through a few of our favorite edits after the jump, and visit LIVE! to see more.
