Van Halen's David Lee Roth FUT Scar

Recommended Posts

I knew David Lee Roth had probably gotten a hair transplant before the more recent Van Halen tours, but this video left no doubt. Watch when he removes his hat around the 5:06 mark and then more close up around the 5:11 mark. You can clearly see his FUT scar. I am not sure why he shaved his head, because I thought his transplant was looking ok on the Van Halen re-union tour I saw.

Spanker.....I guess DLR has thrown in the towel.

 

Who knows if he was taking meds,

but he might have stopped taking finasteride post-op

and the loss continued after his transplant.

On the video it looks like he may have really lost

a lot more hair down the backside of his crown.

I agree Vox....

 

I was a huge VH fan back in the day, but DLR has not aged gracefully

and appears to be quite strange most of the times I've seen him interviewed.

He and Eddie deserve each other. Both quite odd in my book.

Seems like he had a nice transplant and I think most of the front third was ht. With that super high hairline you would think his donor could have supported it.

Or maybe DLR didn't have the right Hair Tansplant Doctor/Clinic?

Never knew DLR had a transplant. Guess he wanted to look more like Sammy ; )

Ouch. He used to be so damned cool too...

Maybe he just doesn't care. If I was DLR, I think I'd get over it.

 

I think there comes a point where owning what you got is admirable. I hope if the bottom ever feel it I could shave my ugly lumpy head and hold my head high.

Didn't care for VH. They were just hair-rock fools. Trashy mall music. Later I realized, "Wait a minute, thede guys are gettting laid, paid and generally haaving ball" So I swiftly revised my judgment. Nowaday, DLR comes across as a sparkiling and intelligent guy and I would listen to him talk. I think he has a pretty - to borrow a word from our recent FUE converts- "evolved" opinion about HT surgery and its consequences.

 

Despite, his big brain, he is no match for the screwball effect that a strip transpant gives a thinking man ovee time. His HT looks great- everthinh you want, thick, conservative, natural hairline, grown out to create the illusion. And yet, I bet his crown waa going, and that throws you in a spin. How rock n roll is abalding crown and picture-perfect frontal pic? Unfortunately, the strip scar also scars your,mind set.,You want to figjt it, defy it. You can sabotage yourself. Any normal human would tell him, just let it grow and comb ovee the crown. Who kniws, with FUE he might let it be. But the damn scar switches on your "fight switch".

Anyway, bless DLR. You now look older and uglier, but I bet you feel younger and better.
