    Question The scar on Dave's head

    I know, I know... who really gives a crap about this? But... I just watched the video of Dave knocking on the door of the partiers in Vegas (who were blaring Van Halen) from earlier this year. And, starting around the 00:45 mark, you can very clearly see a scar on the back of Dave's head, that almost runs from one ear all the way across to the other.



    Has he always had this scar and I've just never noticed it? I'm wondering if it's from some sort of hair replacement/transplant procedure?

    There are certainly more important VH things to ponder (especially right now), but my curiosity is getting the better of me.

    I think that’s his headset for the microphone

    No, I see that. The scar I'm referring to is above the headset cord. And is very much a scar of some kind.

    This was discussed back in 2015, when he performed live with the Foo Fighters. It was pretty much agreed by most that the scar was the result of a hair transplant procedure.

    Dave's scar is from a hair transplant. That's not a dig--I'm bald AF.

    Yes you guys have got it right. They harvest the hair from that area because it is not genetically predisposed to fall out. Those grafts were likely used to reconstruct his hairline at one point. The thing is, your're supposed to grow the hair around the scar line at least long enough to cover the scar. Dave just lets it all hang out, especially when he performed with the Foo Fighters. Should have covered it up with makeup, because people were thinking he had some sort of cranial procedure.
