It's November 8 - and that means, No-Shave November is off to a strong start. 

For those unfamiliar with this tradition, “Noshember” is a month-long campaign that encourages men and women to forgo their typical grooming tendencies and embrace their natural hair trajectories. Instead, participants can forward the budget usually allocated towards shaving products towards cancer prevention and ultimately, furthered cancer awareness. 

Countless stars of rock ‘n roll have historically embraced and expressed their individualistic personalities through a commitment to their facial forests. We believe in the power of promoting the hairy undertakings of our bearded rockers to honor those participating this month and stand strong with those fighting the battle. 

Taking center stage this week is one of music’s greatest drummers. If you’ve ever stumbled into a Fleetwood Mac concert, you might have wondered, ‘Who is that bizarrely cool, bearded drummer rocking the long ponytail?’

This week’s Bearded Rocker is none other than Mick Fleetwood.

The man’s got a beard as long and thin as his 6 ft. 6 in. self. His style of drumming is very real, simple and distinctive, and his neck cloak is no different. Fleetwood once famously shaved his beard during his role in order to wear fish-like prosthetics in his role as an Antedian alien in the Star Trek episode, “Manhunt.”

Let the hair-growth games proceed - live long, and prosper!
