My introduction to Iron Maiden was through DT forums.  I thought the drummer was pretty good.

Love Nicko!

Same with Lars Ulrich's hairline.

Kotowboy,  you are messing with the wrong bald guy.  Amirite Adami?!

My lack of hair isn't the worst thing about me. :lol

You're beautiful King.

All I know, and I'm sorry for making this too personal, is that I started balding at 18 (I used to have long awesome hair) and had like no self-esteem because of it for years. The idea that bald = bad is something that, to me, is no different than fat shaming or thin shaming or anything like that. It's just something society doesn't seem to care about yet, despite a huge number of super rich influential bald guys in the world.

Nope but Lars hair is really untidy. he doesn't even keep it trim.

He went completely bald a year or two ago and it just looked so much better.

It's when people have a few tufts on top and don't just shave it all off that confuses me.

I hope people don't live under the illusion that DT's hair, barring JM and JR, is all natural, right?

They've obviously all coloured it but I don't know if Petrucci or LaBrie have had restorative work done.

What work has James had done?  I can't accept that the coolest guy in metal has had a tummy tuck or a chin reduction.

For me, though I was shocked and saddened when the news broke that Portnoy left, overall I think it's worked out for the best. On the DT side I certainly concede that they're not as much fun as a live band now (both onstage energy and the setlists), but I think that the Mangini albums have been stronger than the last few Portnoy albums and the rest of the band just seems a little more relaxed/content. Meanwhile I have absolutely loved a lot of what MP has released separately since then (newest Transatlantic, both Flying Colors, both Winery Dogs), so the end result is a lot more great music than I probably would have gotten if everyone stayed the course.
Photobucket sucks.

My problem is that "content" sometimes doesn't make for good music.  Does anyone think the "content" Rolling Stones is better than the Stones that is a rollicking, shambolic mess?  Does anyone think that the "content" Marillion is as good as the "are you SURE they're all friends and all their marriages are in great shape?" Marillion? 

Sometimes having to sell the other guys that an idea is good enough is necessary to show that, yeah, the idea is good enough.    I regularly ask myself what Lennon would have said if McCartney pitched "Say Say Say" to the Beatles.   Or "Ebony and Ivory"?   We already know what Keef thinks of "Primitive Cool".

He's had hair put on top :P  Kirk clearly has and James is either thinning extremely slowly in one place or he's had hair put in

Eh, I doubt James had. It's possible some people just have hair.

He may have just been joking around but in one tour video - he sees his thinning hair on the massive screen and chuckles and says " I gotta get that fixed..."
