Bono's hair in Q magazine

The March issue of Q magazine (half naked Pink on the cover) has a list of the twenty worst haircuts in rock. Bono's Live Aid do made #7- right in between George Clinton & Jack Osborne ! I just think that's so rude, especially since the guy who compiled the list bears more than a passing resemblance to Martha Stewart.

Oh, come on, Bono's hair was awful at Live Aid. The mullet and the style were bad enough, but then what was going on with those bizarre streaks?

But Bono, you know I love you!

I don't think its anything to get upset about. Could anyone but a true Bono lover could ever think that hairstyle looked good

I the mullet but even Bono himself admits he had some bad hair back then

I'm with you Kristen F! I really don't see what was so bad about his Live Aid hair, I really don't I thought it was pretty and neat and he was gorgeous!





IF they were going to pick on any mullet of his, it shouldn't have been that one. The sides had grown out and it looked good. It was much worse at Dortmund several months before:





Though I am a mullet fan I didn't care for the way it was shaved down on the sides. Looks like he lost a fight with a weed whacker. But of course even this is better to me than Pop, when he really lost the fight with the weed whacker! I'm not a fan of shaved off hair on any part of the head, even if it's part of a mullet.

But most of his mullet looks were cute. I can think of a lot worse hairstyles in rock history, especially the awful ones out there today, that should have made the list instead! I have long since tired of the jokes on his mullet. It wasn't that bad. I liked it.

The mullet is acceptable....within its historical context.

I can agree that this particular hairstyle was a little on the cheesy side, but they should cut him some slack. It was the 80's and everything was pretty funky back then. If he was still sporting that look today, then maybe he'd be asking for ridicule. But anyone who lived through this decade knows that Bono was the height of cool for what was stylish at that time. I just think Q should have considered how old the picture was before making fun of him, that's all.

True, but even to this day it still looks fine to me. I guess it's because so many ugly styles out there today look so bad and I actually prefer the mullet to them. I really dislike all shaved, partially shaved, spiked and especially gelled up looks. Idiots look like they stuck their fingers in a light socket, then froze that way. So for me it kind of annoys me they pick on the mullet and other 80's looks as if they are the wrong look and the ones today are the right way to look? Not to me! I can't wait until the day Good Charlotte makes that list! I think they belong there now, along with most of today's MTV types. Oh well that's opinion. We could all make a different list.

Who but a true Bono lover? Me. I don't just like the hairstyle on Bono but other guys too. It wasn't because it was Bono, just as I don't love every style he ever had. I also think deep down Bono knows damn well his mullet was hot. He's just playing along before someone jokes on him


BTW, Kristen, who got #1?? George Clinton should have been higher!


Dunno about you, girl but I'm hungry. I have a sudden urge to bump the mullet thread

Exactly! It was the 1980s, most people wore some variant of the mullet, or the shag cut. That was the style back then. And Bono's mullet was neat and clean, not ratty or too big like some other folks'.

Though he looked much handsomer when he grew it out... JT era long hair rules!

So true

He was also prettier when it was halfway in between, like Amnesty Int'l/COH




Somebody please post the entire list, tell me the Flock of Seagulls guy made the top 5!

Thanks Kristen Right on about Bono

Ha ha, I knew the Flock of Seagulls guy had to have made it! I'm so glad to see a member of Good Charlotte on there, they all deserve it! Some of these guys I've never heard of or haven't seen I disagree about Keith Richards. He has always had the same hairdo, it's a little more ratty now but at least he still has it. It's set in 'stone' rock classic look!

Bono does not belong on that list. Even with a skunk mullet he's hotter than anyone else regardless. I'll take that Martha Stewart guy for a makeover, and maybe Martha herself too. That's it, I'll take mullet Bono to my PLEBA Mansion Hair Cuttery and cut it off. *snip snip* problem solved!

This reminds me, didn't somebody post a pic of Bono a few months ago with his mullet photoshopped off? Who has this? I'd love to see that long naked neck.

I have a soft spot for mullet Bono Yes, it probably would not look good on him now But, like you said, within its historical context, I think it's

I don't know, it just makes me feel nostalgic I guess

I think all of us who lived in the '80's wish we could forget our hairstyles. Mine was an awful spiral perm that made my hair look like wool. (as so gallantly pointed out to me by an old man in the Tube in London) He was right! Though I still drool of Bono's JT hair which was late '80's.
