    I thought about putting Jimi in the OP, but, ya know, his fro was a little weak in comparison with his oursized talent.

    Honestly, the more I look at Neal Schon's insane 70s coiffure, the more I think he's really the one to beat.

    Rabea Massaad's is pretty good, though I am a big fan of Sideshow Bob
