The ten things rock stars do to try to remain relevant when their stars start to fade
4. Having kids and trying to make them stars
Washed-up musicians are all about grooming their offspring to take over the family business. Let's take Wolfgang Van Halen, for instance: We know his dad is a wackadoodle, so it's no shock that Eddie encouraged his offspring to not only be a musician, but to play as a bassist in Van Halen. We also have Will Smith's hair-swinging baby Willow.
3. Doing Playboy
We think that '80s stars may have the market on Playboy covers; maybe these ladies graced the pages of the most respectable nudie mages because it was in their contracts? Or maybe the ladies of the '80s just like sticking their titties on the glass (yes, we're looking at you, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Belinda Carlisle and Vanity).

2. Going into politics
Musicians know all too well what it means to play to a crowd, so it just makes sense that they would go into politics. Honestly, out of all the categories, this one makes the most sense. Think about it: They still get to be on a stage, enjoy the adoration of fans, engage periodically in sordid trysts -- and, best of all, they never have to explain any of their actions! The kissing-babies part might be a smidge weird, but these ex-rock stars have kissed plenty of ass, so I'm sure they can adjust.
