Sheila E.'s being just as hot as she was in Krush Groove at her recent appearances during Prince's 21 Nite Stand at the Forum sent us spinning fantasies involving other musicians who are just as hot (or hotter) with a little age on 'em. This is our list, though- who's on yours?

Here are the Top Ten Musicians "Of a Certain Age" that You'd Still Do:

10. David Byrne

Silver haired and still killin' it onstage, David Byrne (born 1952) just keeps gettin' sexier. His body of work is just as alluring as his physical form, featuring collaborations with Brian Eno, founding and fronting the Talking Heads, and directing True Stories. Very few humans are able to analyze history with such critical poetry while maintaining such a GQ look.

"Life is Long" on the Colbert Report 2009

9. David Bowie

When David Bowie fell from space in 1947, the world inherited a time bomb of androgynous fuck appeal. Labyrinth turned a whole generation of children onto the delightful package their parents had been admiring for years (and perhaps paved the way for the Furry movement).Crooning in that unmistakable voice, Bowie can make sadness sound sexy and sex sound downright tragic. Another multi-disciplinarian, David Bowie can turn you on in many mediums but is perhaps best when sitting at the piano singing sincerely into a camera so viewers can sigh at his charmingly crooked fangs and uneven pupils.

"I'm Afraid of Americans" 2006

8. Tom Waits

Gets you wet while making you cringe.

"Bottom of the World" 2011

7. Dolly Parton

No explanation needed.

"Jolene" 2007

6. Leonard Cohen

Still got it.

"I'm Your Man" live in London 2009
