Yep, it sure does help.

Idk, probably something to do with the fact that we're showing we are free people, and we can have our hair long.

Short hair is actually a trend that's popped up in the last 300 years or so. If you had lice you'd have to cut your hair, if you were sick, your hair would fall out. Long hair is a sign of wealth and good health =)

EDIT: And coincidentally, it makes headbanging not look stupid.

That doesn't sound all to encouraging. I don't know the answer to this, but I've always wanted to know who the first band to scream was, it would have been a really screwed up idea back when it first came around I imagine. But yeah I guess it's because of headbanging and all.

Edit: Or maybe metalheads were just to poor to cut it.

Kerry pic


long beard = long hair
Why should I come down?
From here, I can see forever.
#22
Everyone knows the longer your hair is, the better you play.
And before someone posts Kerry or Satriani they have invisible hair.
And by the way, Herman Li has a wig.
#23
It would have originated in the 60's as a type of rebellion against the conservative hair styles of the 1950s. It became associated with rock and roll as well as counter culture and progressed.
