Here's one artist we think shows quite a bit of change from yearbook picture to recent photograph. Do you think you know who it is, or do you want some clues?

About as synonymous as any musician is to his home state, this New Jersey-born rocker snagged his first and only No. 1 hit as a songwriter when Manfred Mann's Earth Band's version of a tune off his debut solo album topped the charts in 1976. He himself hit it bigger than most artists ever dream in 1984, releasing an album that spawned an astounding seven Top 10 singles and has since sold more than 15 million copies, just here in the U.S.A.

Since then he's remained an active musical force, releasing albums every several years and touring frequently. He's won 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, on Academy Award, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. He's gearing up to release his 17th studio album in March and is expected to hit the road following that release.
