I gotta get new glasses soon, and was trying to think of some rockstars who wore glasses to get some ideas. So far all I can think of is John Lennon, Rivers Cuomo, and Buddy Holly. Anyone else?

EDIT: Knew there was something wrong with me suggesting sunglasses. Geddy Lee's glasses are kick ass though, and he's Canadian so that's doubly awesome.

u forgot slash



Hahahahaha! I dunno if they are prescription though. I could be well wrong.

If you are gonna perform live, contacts are ideal unless it's just an acoustic set or something with less bouncing and jumping. Friends and i jam bluesy/jazzy sometimes but i still wear glasses. Contacts are a hassle and some people don't respond well to it. Eyes are sensitive that is.

All depends how bad your vision is i suppose!

He wears those shades everywhere, not just on stage, it's like he's an FBI agent or some ****.

are we talking about shades, or specs?

john lennon, elton john.

vai and satch wear shades..and i think portnoy wears glasses. ozzy, of course.

can't forget Elvis

Quote by Zetsword

actually, when I met him when he did signings after the gig, he didn't have shades on. when i see him in interviews or youtube lessons..he doesn't wear shades.

actually, during the question and answer, he said he wears his shades because he gets emotional when he plays, and he's almost always playing with his eyes closed. so..he doesn't want the audience to feel uncomfortable if he isn't looking at them.
