A NINETIES pop legend has been spotted looking unrecognisable 26 years after number one hit.

Since rising to fame back in 1996, the rock band member has quit music and cut off his iconic long locks.

Singer songwriter Jasbinder Mann now looks completely different from his rock-star appearance back in the 1990s.

Jas, 51, was the lead singer of was lead singer of Babylon Zoo, who are known for their 1996 hit Spaceman.

The rock band’s album The Boy with the X-Ray Eyes made it to No. 6 in the charts in the same year as they hit the big time.

The hits dried up for Jas’s band Babylon Zoo after Spaceman, powered by its inclusion in a TV ad for jeans.

Back then, Jas was known for his shoulder-length hair, which he kept tucked behind his ears during his performances.

But now, he looks very different – having chopped off his longer locks for perfectly styled short hair.

He also opts for a goatee beard and chic specs as part of his new role away from the music industry.

After quitting rock band Babylon Zoo, Jas co-founded film production and distribution company Virgin India.

In 2008, he became co-chairman and CEO of the multi-million dollar film studios Indomina Group.

Jas also works as a board member of the children’s charity International Child Art Foundation, funding arts in schools.

Jas isn’t the only nineties pop star that is unrecognisable – as earlier this week we revealed where Kavana is now.
