I had long hair 3 out of the 4 years I was in high school. It grew out fast and long, and got all knotty and after a while I forgot why I grew it out so long. It was hard to take care of, I didn't think it looked very good, so I chopped it all off. you dont need long hair to rock out, but it sure does feel nice


I hate that stereotype, that "rockers have to have long hair"... I think it's ridiculous! I just have long hair just because I like it... and maybe because I'm too lazy to get it cut. laugh.gif I think it's also kind of weird that now it's "normal" for guys to have short hair and girls to have long hair. I mean, where did that come from?

Yeah i move around alot, even in my room.

My facial expression depends on what i play, from what im told, i look like i have a bad case of madness, or dementia when i play Heavy stuff (ala Cannibal Corpse, or something fast), when i play the blues or something more melodic and slow, people say i look like im "struggling", the SRV one. i also never open my eyes when i play slower/ bluesier stuff, i dont know why.

*EDIT*

If i could, id even swing from zip lines like Dickinson does wink.gif

I think headbanging with short hair looks a bit silly, but that's just me...

Robin I have to say, you look like a badass in this pic cool.gif

It might have something to do with your awesome guitar. I want a damn explorer, right after a hollow body of some kind and a jazzmaster or strat and a parker mojo and an engl/marshall/carvin/mesa/elmwood/whatever half stack I end up with biggrin.gif

It means you're in the zone. If you don't make an ugly face while playing then you're not totally in to it! tongue.gif

Haha what an awesome thread!
The music is obviously #1, but you've gotta get the poses right!

Here me in a classic pose (before I cut my hair)

laugh.gif I have a friend that loves ska, he taught me how to skank, it's a heck of a lot of fun! But, I don't like ska music... It's fun, but not very musical, in my opinion.

I stand there, looking pretty cool. I wear my guitar low, so it looks good. I don't really move that much, I'm too focused on the sound, although I do headbang. In solo mode, I'm pretty much SRV or Santana, the struggle to pull something off, looking like you just took a hard blow when you hit a solid high note, it's awesome. That passion dwells within lol.
