Hair (And Lack Of Same)


Here's what happens when you go from being a bass player to being a freelance writer.


Before

After
Well, OK, all of my hair loss wasn't because I stopped being a rock star and became a writer. There were a few years between these photos where I was neither. However, the two photos do rather nicely illustrate what's in my latest piece, which is published in an on-line site called Purple Clover. I hope you'll go read it right now!

(If you don't, the stress you'll be causing me might make what's left of my hair fall out. You wouldn't want to be the cause of that, would you?)

As always, thanks for reading!

Soon, with more better stuff.

For whatever reason, I can't link to the site you gave us. But I've got my freshman-year student ID (summer of '73), in which my hair was pretty similar to yours (not red, but thicker and curlier). . .

When 1F was about 5 years old or so, she somehow laid eyes on that photo, and fell on the floor laughing. "You look like a Mommy!" she howled.

Yeah, that's pretty much what my dad said, too. . .

Red-heads rule the world. At least, i think they do. Former red-heads, too.

Hair today, goon tomorrow... That's about all I have. Words from Little Bunny Foo Foo.

My grandfather began going bald at 22. He was rather depressed about it at first, but got past it in fairly short order. He had a fringe around his head, but a real chrome dome above.

When my mom was five, he was going to see the barber one morning. As he went out the door, my mom said, "Daddy, don't let them take any more off the top."

Redheads rule! Loved the article cos I had bright orange hair too.... the glowing colour has calmed down a bit as I age, but it's still red, and I still stand out in a crowd as long as the sun is shining on me!!!!
