Rod has won the Classic Rock March Mullet Madness, easily beating David Bowie by a comfortable margin of 63 to 37 percent in the final, Even though Rod has never really had a mullet but has always had best the best hair in the history of Rock!
Rod's fan's had already voted him through through a who’s who of rock royalty, including Rush frontman Geddy Lee, U2‘s Bono and Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott.
Rod has always been very proud of his hair and even devoted an entire chapter in Rod, his autobiography, to that legendary coif. As a kid in suburban London, Stewart remembered in 2012, he’d go to whatever lengths were needed to achieve the desired look. Since “a hairdryer was considered absolute luxury,” he’d race to his sister’s house – “about 50 yards away” – to use one, but only after applying a specially designed mixture of “warm water and sugar on my hair.”
As such, Bowie probably didn’t stand a chance, despite having already topped longtime Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant and Metallica frontman James Hetfield in previous rounds.
So Rod becomes mullet royalty, a place not that different from the official royalty in his home country. “The Queen and I have one thing in common,” Rod quipped in 2013. “The same hairstyle for 45 years.”
