Here we go with the second week of this whiskery series!
Week Number Two
It’s close to getting out of the scratchy annoying stage at this point, but it’s still a little itchy.
It looks like it’s going to be a whiter shade of gray than it’s ever been. Which leads me to thinks that the title, “A Whiter Shade of Gray” would be a good title for a Procol Harum reunion song.
I still have a little bit of a rash under the sideburn area, but I’ve sent away for a beard shampoo that might help that out.
So there you have week number two of bearded growth. I’m going to go Google Procol Harum now and see if any of them are still alive!
Famous Beards Through The Years
Number one in a series that will last until I shave this off and have to figure out something else to do for the MBIP Saturday post.
This year ZZ Top celebrates its 50th year as a band. This makes them the longest running American rock ‘n roll band that has not changed or added members of all time. Guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill have sported long signature chest-length beards since 1979.
ZZ Top’s drummer has never grown a beard and his name is Frank Beard. Irony at its finest hour!
In 1984, the Gillette shaving company offered Gibbons and Hill a cool million bucks to shave off their beards for an ad campaign but they refused.
Hey Gillette, I’ll shave mine for one more round and a six pack to go!
