David Lee Roth Bald - Picture : Singer shows off bald head at birthday performance

David Lee Roth shows off bald head at birthday performance.

Singer showed up on stage with the Foo Fighters on Saturday night in Los Angeles and showed off his new hairstyle — no hair, according to TMZ.

It’s unclear when Roth decided on this new style. A Happy New Year message via his online Roth Show found him still sporting a full head of hair — or, at least an approximation thereof. A surreal Christmas song he shared earlier in December didn’t include any images of Roth.

For a time, speculation ran rampant on the state of his hairline, after a precipitous post-Van Halen recession. In fact, there’s an entire message-board thread on the RothArmy.com website discussing how Roth’s coif impacted 1988′s ‘Skyscraper.’

By 1994, Entertainment Weekly was noting that Roth’s hair was “shorter and wispier, a shaggy bowl cut that hardly seems capable of billowing to its former Pacific heights.” Into the 2000s, Roth was reportedly getting into a backstage brawl when touring mate (and Van Halen successor) Sammy Hagar made a quip about Roth being follically challenged.
