The Bearded Musician: From Cheek to Chin.

The Bearded Musician: From Cheek to Chin.

Like most people I have spent many hours contemplating the role of beards in music.Wondering what it is about the beard that makes its wearer inclined to musical prowess is surely a nearly universal experience akin to that dream where you start to fall but wake up suddenly…what the hell is that? Truly the musical beard is a mystery we all have thought about. Is it itchy? Is it hot under all those lights? Is it somehow a crossroads-like devil deal that comes with selling your soul? How do they get it so thick on the sides? I don’t know the answers to any of these questions. Here’s a list of famous bearded musicians (no goatees, Van Dykes, chinstraps or 5 o’clock shadows):

ZZ Top-How can the first one NOT be ZZ Top?

Jerry Garcia- First rate beard.

Kenny Loggins- Highway to the bearded zone.

Trey Anastasio- Ginger beard.

Barry Gibb- Saturday Night Fever beard.

Curtis Mayfield- Soul beard.

Cat Stevens- Islamobeard

Matisyahu- Orthodox beard.

Kenny Rogers- Gamblin’ beard.

Susan Boyle

The Beatles- Briefly bearded.

Jim Morrison- I’m a huge jerk to everyone beard.

Jim James- My Morning Jacket beard.

Eric Clapton- Slow beard.

A few local faves:

Carleton Page- Pretty much a competition level beard.

Andy Laliotis- Local staple beard.

Mark Trottier- Go Local beard.

Rob Kleiner- Snake oil beard.

Boogie on Alice- Get with it Ghelli.

Dually Finch (Scott Trottier)- Desperately wants a beard, but has the hormones of an 8 year old girl. He is included because of his sincere desire for a heroic beard he will never have.
