Everyone knows that how longer your hair is the better you play. Tsss idiot.

No, its just stereotyping, don't worry about it, you don't need to prove an image to anyone. I couldn't care less what I look like.

If you have long hair, you (might) look the part, so people will take you more seriously.

Of course it is, dumbass.
Seriously, cutting one's hair results in as much as a forty percent decrease in rocking, TS. Of course, shaving one's head - e.g. Joe Satriani - nullifies this.

I have long hair and I don't have it long because of any fashion statement or social group ****, I just have it long because I like it long and if I grow tired of it being long, i'll get it cut
#10
Length of hair is proportional to how hard you can rock.

It's the opposite way round for women.
#12
My hair has been any length from shoulder to almost clean shaven when I've played gigs. It doesn't matter a jot. Though I do think it's much more fun headbanging when you have a long manly mane.

I believe slash once said something along the lines of dont worry about your image, concentrate on what your playing.

and he's ****ing right. The reason why alot of guitarists have long hair is they dont have time to get it cut, cause there busy, playing that dam guitar!!

practice on your music not your image!

ive always wanted to grow my hair as long as i can remember to see how i'd like it. now that its past my shoulders and going down my back i actually do like it. And liking metal has nothing to do with how my hair is, if i decided to like rap tomorrow, my hair would be the same.

a Real Metal Guitarist need long hair... (if your a singer, drummer or bass player you can have sort hair)
my hair is 85 cm long
#26
The only reason I grew my hair was because I formed a rock band, to be honest. All the band members had short hair at the start, but within a year's time all four of us had flowing locks.

Mainly because we wanted to be Led Zeppelin....I was going for the Robert Plant look myself.

Either way, I no longer have the long hair, and I'm no longer in that band. Coincidence? Probably. But I do see what you mean, you do tend to feel more "rawk" with long hair.

well i think rockers having long hair is a sign of rebellion, not being like everyone else. Rock and roll is all about rebelling and long hair is how its done. But now its not as much because so many people have long hair, idk i like my long hair, it helps stand out at my school. it's kinda of a hassle and people tell me all the time to cut it. but it looks pretty cool and its fun.

Do I have to explain the complex relationship between hair length and musical brutality again? I'm currently working with Stephen Hawking on papers for the very matter. In layman's terms, long hair = talent.

Ironic that Slash has one of the most iconic images in rock then

We can observe that hair anywhere between shoulder and waist length makes you a better guitarist. If it goes past your waist, your skills begin to deteriorate rapidly (Herman Li).

I have long hair. I'm 13 and still growing it since 2-3 years ago. I play guitar (duuuh) and I head bang...


Kerry King is bald (as was obliviously going to be mentioned... too late) Bruce Dickinson got his hair cut around the time of Brave new World and isn't growing it back (I think it's because he's a pilot but)

Slash's is long... and Hendrix had an Afro...

Just figure it out on your own. Most metalheads like their's long though

You are going to get murdered here. Y'know, just FYI.

Anyway, it's fine if you have had long hair at a point in this past, but have cut it in recent times - see Angus Young.

Basically metal/rock are very testosterone fueled types of music.

More hair=manliness.

That's the only conclusion I can draw from it.
