They didn't sing. They didn't have golden fingers. And they weren't paid, but hundreds of makeup groupies--most of whom weren't even born when Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show had that hot single in 1973--showed up at Nordstrom's cosmetics counter in South Coast Plaza recently to get their picture on a mock-up of Rolling Stone magazine.
