Who are some singers that sound far younger ( or older) than they really are?

I was listening to this song by Australian singer, Daryl Braithwaite, who is 71 y/o and had hit singles back ( in Australia) in the late 1960s.

    I was always amazed at the depth and soul of Peter Gabriel's voice when he was younger, amazing to think he was singing songs like 'The Musical Box' when he was only 21 and he quit the band when he was only 25 and even today he doesn't sound like a 70 year old.

    While I'm not a huge Stones fan, my top pick would have to be either Mick Jagger or Dolly Parton.  Both of them sound the same today as they did 40 years ago.

    Tom Waits for both. In "Closing Time" he sounded far older than 23, but by "Bad as Me" he sounds younger than 62 (when he wants to anyway).

    This American singer, Captain Beefheart, he's dead, and had genre defining albums in the late 60s and early 70s.

    Roy Orbison sounded like he was still in his youth when he made the Traveling Wilburys album with George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.
