[Spun-off from the "what makes you stand out" thread.]
It was brought up that alot of bassists tend to wield beards. So this thread is part of a study to prove/disprove that theory, and also as a tribute to the bearded bassers of the bottom-end community.


So, do beards/bass go hand in hand?
How many of you bassists wear beards?

Also, I cant help but feel obligated to post this picture :

I have a beard, well did until a few days ago. I like having a beard though...except when I'm sleeping, when it's long enough to get in your mouth, that crap sucks.
Yes, I'm from California, yes I like Hockey, no I do not like the Ducks, yes I like the Kings!

Beards and basses both start with "B," they're both awesome, therefore awesome people have beards, and awesome people have basses. Why not combine the two into a low-end, thumping, bearded-bass machine?

And I would grow a beard but I'd look terrible with one. Maybe a goatee though
#7
I grew out a beard as soon as I could.
I think it fits well with bass, and hides the fact I have no chin.
#8
I've got a mini goatee-thing...

I either have some chin-cabbage, or a full beard. Depends on the season.

Troy Sanders also has a beard.

I originated it, though. Gave Lee Sklar the idea.

I don't have one, but the second I leave for college I'm going to start growing one of those metalhead line/goatee things

Also, this thread is so epic.

I would like to rock a small goatee, but I completely lack beard powers D:


I will stick to trying to get some rockstar hair. Kinda like Nikki... but... under more control. maybe some day I can build up enough mojo to grow a small beard... or a mustache... a handle-bar mustache.

What kind job requires you to not have a beard? Just claim you've converted to Orthodox Judaism. If they still won't let you, sue

It's my first year at college. I started playing bass when some of my hallmates decided we were going to make a band and my trombone didn't fit too well. We then decided to do "no-shave November". This led to our being ostracized from our families during Thanksgiving break until we shaved (The keyboardist's parents said he looked like a terrorist ). There are no longer any beards on my hall.

I don't know if its still true but at one time, if you worked for the Disney organization, they had an incredibly strict dress and appearance code, including no facial hair for men.

Which is odd since Uncle Walt had a mustache.

i shall shave my beard and see how my bass playing is affected. It is my hypothesis that my beard is the source of my bass playing ability

I had a GREAT beard for about a year, then shaved it off for work. Now I have a girlfriend and if I grow back the beard... there goe sextra-curricular activities.

It was awesome though, a mennonite/terrorist/orthodox jew/birdsnest beard... I could hide pens, lighters, and scissors in it, and shaving it off took over an hour. This was all before my bass days though.

I work at a hotel, I'm allowed a beard, but not allowed to grow one, eg no stubble, or half beards.

I have that exact same problem! Your girlfriend gets pissed when I shave off my beard!

I have a gig tomorrow, and I require some beard maintainence. I like to give it a shape and have it 3/8" long. It's very long and the shape is gone. I plan on wearing my infamous Maple Laughs jersey tomorrow. I don't know whether I should tidy up the beard and get a haircut, or go full-on mountain-man a la my Hard Rock gig.
