    Edward's beard?

    I was just watching a Black and Blue clip which reminded me of the OU812 tour. Didn't Ed grow a beard during that tour? I remember my friend commenting on how scruffy he looked. Anyway I've never seen a picture of him with it, so I just might be imagining the whole thing.
    Better use it up before it gets old!

    I heard Ed is currently growing a ZZ Top beard and will be joining them as the 4th member of the band. This is why we haven't heard from him in awhile. It takes time to grow on of those sweet beards

    I have pics of myself and EVH during the 5150 tour (Oct 21-22 1986 Seattle) and he has a full beard. When I show people the pics, not many recognize Ed right away. I met him second night of the show backstage and he was very cool to me and the fans. That's another story. One day when I get with the times, I'll try to post the pics here. As far as other beards, the only other time I can remember was the Balance tour. I thought the goat looked cool.

    Yes, the goatee was a very cool look. It seemed that he inspired a whole bunch of people to copy that same look because shortly thereafter, the goatee made a huge comeback.

    Would love to hear your stories about the backstage experience. We can use all the positive stories we can get.

    The pictures from Balance were why I decided to get my hair cut in a flat top and grow a goatee. Of course, now the flat top is even flatter, but the goatee has been for the most part, intact ever since.

    I took more of a liking to his look from the Humans Being video. Goatee still intact but his hair had grown back in a bit more. A look i use on occassion.

    Edward's hair trim / Edward's playing trim ('95).

    Edward's hair frizzed out / Edward's playing frizzed out ('04).

    Coincidence?

    I never really cared for the 'Balance' look. He looked like he should've been playing in Pantera. But, everyone goes through some changes throughout there life so I can't knock it.
