    Not a full-on wig, but Steven Tyler definitely has a "system" of some sort.

    Ritchie Blackmore.

    Another one comes to mind that I won't mention.

  8. Billy Gibbons has hair but not sure if he is balding or not.......if so his face makes up for it ;)

    +1 for Jeff Beck - it's exactly the same as it was in 1965.

    Ron Wood?

    I went bald at 26 - I wet shave my head now every 2 days. It's the only answer for me - but I have a keen eye for a syrup (of figs... Wigs... ;-)

    I'm 99% sure he's balding/bald. I seem to recall seeing him without a had somewhere and he def had some hairloss going on.

    springsteen definitely had plugs at some point. i remember seeing him in the 90's and when his head was soaking wet you could see he was very bald as an eagle in the back and did a mad comb over. then there was a summer wear he wore a hat almost everywhere he went to make club appearances.. and now on stage is is very careful not to mess up his hair, lol

    Funny that: He started the Engineer Boot as Metal Footwear meme to hide the fact that he was wearing platform soles; Notice that you never see him on the same side of the stage as the bassist and the singer :D

    (wonder if he had Marshall make downsized stacks, ala the reduced scale doors used on Hollywood sets to make the leading man look taller :confused:)

    You'd think he'd be "All about the music" :rolleyes:

    Not a pop star, but I was surprised to find out last week that John Travolta is bald. They had a pic of him after playing tennis without his toupe.

    The guys in Twisted Sister wear wigs now, because some of them have either hair loss or day jobs.

    Ron Wood? I don't think so. Jeff Beck? Maybe. he does color it. Jagger? No, but he colors it. Springsteen? I dunno. Billy Gibbons, yes. Same with Steven Tyler. Blackmore has worn a toupee or wig for years.

    The president of Hair Club For Men claimed he made a hairpiece for Jimi Hendrix back in the day.

    Paul Rogers.

    I am sensing Neil Schon, but can't say for certain.

    My radar is always on for this kind of thing due to my own insecureties of noticing a little loss myself. No wig in my future, but if I do, it will be a jet black man perm with a slight mullet/beaver tail and a skunk stripe dead center.

    Yeah, when you see him in public today, he's got a lot more hair than he did 30-plus years ago.
