Then as it was, then again it will be

My buddy Shinichi came up with a critical insight just the other day: has anyone noticed that men of music Seiji Ozawa and Jimmy Page are visually to a high degree of approximation the same person? They were born ten years apart, which used to account for a large degree of difference in times past (there were other reasons), but now that they're getting on in years the percentage that that represents is quite modest, bringing out the similarity.

Now I'm wondering whether the two have ever met. Worked together? Has anyone actually seen them in the same room at the same time?

Until now, it appears that this point of correspondence has not been fully appreciated, or else anyone making the observation has refrained from posting the evidence to the World Wide Web.

Update: Removed the link to morphthing which seems to have lost my submission in its database. Here are the original pictures I used:
