Bald is good - maybe?

Funnily enough this photo wasn't featured on the Virgin Media website last week.

It got me thinking about the crucial dilemma of what blokes should do with their hair as they get older.

Do you think Sir Dickie wanted to look like Kurt? As I continue to study this fascinating subject, I begin to think that blokes who are well on the way to egg city are the luckiest.

There was David Essex last week and now there’s this other bloke.

See what I mean?

Chaps who still have hair may be tempted to look like this

No - Sir Paul - you will never be a moptop again. You are SIXTY FIVE years old.

Is this Brian May's mum come to see his PhD ceremony?

Does Robert Plant want to sing with Simply Red?

Will Francis Rossi soon be sticking his pony tail on to the back of his head with super glue?
Rod Stewart's not so bad - but he does have bad hair days.

And bad knicker days.

Kurt Waldheim was quite a handsome gent in his younger days wasn't he?
I can't decide whether the SS uniform would have enhanced or detracted from this.

It is evident that Rod Stewart didn't have matching collar and cuffs.

It's a male rock star problem. They think they can fool people into thinking they're not balding or have grey hair, and then the disastrous adventures with hair dye and ponytails begin. Very few of them can grow old with any sort of dignity or without looking very odd. Charlie Watts is one of the few exceptions.

(Mind you, I don't think I should really be passing judgement on anyone else growing old with dignity.)

I hope Branson's bollocks are smarting.

Mr P's a pin-up, isn't he?

I'm a self confessed Slaphead, I had all my hair shaved off in 1977 to have a tattoo on my napper and the bugger didn't grow back proper... I have heard all the jokes and made a few up my self. I would not wear a wig or a hair piece for love nor money. I think they look daft to say the least. Brush across is one of the funniest things a baldy can do... and some of the hair cuts you rightly point out Kaz at classics.

Bald is Beautiful... if you are a Coot. But trying to hid it make is far funnier.

Kurt Waldeheim - oh yes I saw him in Hello magazine.
Great boy band!

Oh yes - I'd forgotton about Charlie.

Let's face it - you can't be 'Sir whatever' and still be an edgy alternative anarchist dangerous sort of person - can you?

So remember this when you're 'Dame Betty'.

I almost felt sorry for him - but only for a nano second.

Mr P's on hol at the moment so this won't make him too big headed.

Mr P took the "B" out of "Banal".

Slapheads are fine - apart from my ex husband who turns out to have an odd shaped head.

But that's lovely - young healthy plentiful - looks great long.

(I'm watching Bob on BBC 4 as I type.)

This may be true
But what's it got to do with his hairstyle?

You started your post off with Richard Branson (who I'm still cross with) and ended it with Rod Stewart. EEEEwwwwww!!!

What did we do wrong, that you would want to punish us this way. I think Rod is vile and that picture hasn't made me re-assess my opinion.

An aging rocker who I think has kept his dignity is David Gilmour. He started out with long flowing locks and now has a close buzz cut. David Bowie before his heart trouble still looked fabulous, since then he's got a bit of water retention problem, but I still would.

Yes, I thought Branson must be aiming for the Kurt look too... as for the rest, well I think Brian mAy just about pulls it off (but only because it looks better on him than on his missus). As for Rod...of dear.

Whole we're on the subject of Rod, our youngest was asking why they keep asking this "short old bloke" in the audience about things on "Strictly Come Dancing". She has not a clue who he is. Tee hee.

That Rod photo - surely it was taken aeons ago? Bad look then and now. But being a female of the long haired brigade myself, I feel I cannot sneer at chaps that keep their locks as they age - I am doing the same and will eventually have a long grey pigtail down my back in old age and stuff 'em! Sorry if folks are disappointed when I turn round to see the streak of grey and woman in her 40's face. That's life.

Has Robert Plant morphed into a longer-haired Joe Cocker?

Blogger KAZ said...

I'm so sorry - I can't seem to help myself.

True about Dave Gilmour - but he seemed to shave away his charisma along with his hair.

Me too.

I like Angie.

Tee Hee. Rod in the audience?
I suppose that's what the poor old bloke has to do to hold on to his young glamorous wife.

But as you're a girl you probably won't be bald on top.
Tony (above) would be going on about the lovely Emmylou Harris

Joe already looked 60 when he was 25.

Rod was an ugly trog.

Apparently they used a body double to portray Brits wobbling arse in the Wicker Man.

She was most offended so Rod bought all the prints to prevent her humiliation on the big screen

Not a lot of people know that.

Confession time: I was Brit's bum double. At the time, I had to shave my hairy arse and it never did grow back, wait, that wasn't it...

You are the oracle of celebrity trivia.

Can I have your autograph please.

Blogger MJ said...

RIMSHOT: If you were Brit's bum double as you say you were, then why haven't you sent me that pic of your nekkid arse as all new male Infomaniac readers are required to do?

*waits impatiently*

Have a heart - that film was made nearly 40 years ago - it'll all have drooped downwards by now.

Erm - probably not.
I don't think I can afford to lose 8 blogging friends by tagging them.

I've got news for you Kaz...

He's finally sent it!

There's nothing worse than baldness denial - shave it off boys.

I don't know a single woman who gives a fuck about male pattern baldness.

(I kind of fancy Robert Plant though - tell no-one.)

Blogger KAZ said...

Can't wait to see if it's shaved or unshaved!

It's not the baldness is it?
It's the unnattractive creativity that's done to hide it.

Robert - Yeah - you are not alone.
