Rockbrat Wonders: Which Rocker Wore The Most Ridiculous Wig ? Kevin Dubrow

Kev Dubow - hoping for calm conditions (courtesy exposay)

Sheer boredom made me research some great rock wig wearers….which I’d originally posted over at the Rock n Roll Geek Forum. Make no mistake folks, these guys are some of our favourite musicians, but that don’t mean they are off the Rockbrat Humour Radar. Check out some of these great rugs….as the great Jackie Starr once said “you want me to do a weave,  I can do a weave !”

Let’s kick off with Quiet Riot’s much loved vocalist Kevin Dubrow. Read through our past posts, we freakin-well dig QR big time, and I’d go so far as to say that Condition Critical would most likely make Mr Rockbrat’s Top Ten. Kev had gone the weave or a rug around 1985 but some years later when he lived in Vegas, was donning this dead cat. So here we have ….contestant #1, Mr Kevin Dubrow.

  1. yeah what’s with that , bwahhaha I also have a feeling Frankie also may have rugged up too. ,actully SAXON’S Paul Quinn in the last 80’s did i am sure but now is shaved and looks much better …

    1. Frankie Banali a wig wearer ? Mr Rockbrat doesn’t think so. Banali has been involved with zillions of great bands and is deserving of a post I reckon. Thanks for the comment Tim…

  2. Well I don’t know if he qualifies as a well-known “rocker” but the 80s shred guitarist Michael Angelo (sometimes Michael Angelo Batio) from the band Nitro started sporting one of the most obvious wigs in history. He became fairly well known for providing instructional clinics and “speed guitar” lessons. At some point he became associated with the “Metal Method” instructional series, which used to show up in the ad pages of various 80s and 90s guitar magazines. Anyway more recently, Metal Method has a YouTube channel to promote those materials. If you dared mentioned MAB’s wig in the comments section, even if being generally complimentary relative to his shredding ability, you would get banned. I’m not a fan of shred but will allow that MAB can in fact play very fast but that thing on his head is something else and only detracts from his performance. Here is a link to one of his vids but just do some Googling and surfing on YouTube.
