    Okay, we all know it's a wig, but why does it have to be the style of a 1980s metalhead? Frankie Bello, the bassist for Anthrax, has hair like Howard Stern, if it were real.

    Frankie Bello cannot really update the hair, you know? It's part of the subculture he's been a leading member of for decades.

    But what is Stern's excuse for looking like a 1980s rocker when he talks about healthy, pescatarian dieting and kitten adoption? Why don't people trash him for being so dated and stylistically inappropriate?

    You think he would be better off exposing more of his gaudy, bulbous head and drooping face? That wig is the only thing keeping him from being larry king.

    Howard borders somewhere between genius and madness. No one, not even those who detest him the most, can deny his business sense. He didn't get lucky. He formed a product and maneuvered it in a brilliant fashion. How many billions has he been paid over the decades? The man knows how to get cake.

    His madness about being a beat down mess of a human bubbles through everywhere. Changing his voice, lying about his history, his appearance are all attempts to cover up whatever cowering small man is really at his core.

    i went and saw old-school Canadian band RAZOR last weekend and it kicked so much ass, even though they're old as fuck now.

    lots of big hair there

    His "business sense" is the ability to lie, cheat and steal. Extreme selfishness. Extreme narcissism. I don't see that as something to be looked up to

    I assigned neither nobility or evil to his actions. That is for each to decide himself. Every successful person can be accused of lying, cheating, and stealing. Our society is filled with losers who think that anyone who has achieved more than them is a criminal. Maybe you should worry about your place in life and not hate Howard for his ability to attract wealth to himself.

    My theory is that Howard had a series of transplants that have left him in a position where, thin as whatever real white wisps he has are, he cannot shave his head because the scarring and plug-marks will look ridiculous. He knows how terrible his wig looks and cries about it every day but getting rid of plug scars would be impossible.

    He should do what a pre-cancer Robin did before she put the scalp of poor dead Warren Zevon sideways atop her head after her illness (and boy was she bald BEFORE cancer) -- staple a few nasty dreadlocks to the top of his bald dome.

    I really agree
    And his rebrand to a culturally acceptable middle America non controversial broadcaster is truly amazing and extremely caculated. It never would have happened if he would have gotten greedy for merchandise money or didn't keep the fake narrative that he was all about his first wife and family, just a regular blue collar family man

    He really has come a long way to erasing the shock jock past and broadening his audience to women. And it's all calculated, from the Sirius move, the wife with his contrived history and dress style, the kittens, the cultivated very public friendships with Rosie, Katie, Barbara Walters, Aniston; the elimination of Sal,Richard,Artie as in studio contributors, AGT

    Here's a clip of Howard singing in his band SATAN. I liked his hair better here and his voice is much better than I thought it would be.

    You and Wiggy are the real losers. Now get back to that glory hole. Those dicks aren't going to suck themselves.

    Departed Quiet Riot frontman Kevin Dubrow's "hair" is a more fitting comparison to Howard's.

    They both even do that long center part with cascading, buoyant curls.

    "Business sense," please. He was doing shitty B-movies and everything he was offered before he found Buchwald.

    D.B. didn't even want him to do AGT, knowing it would damage his overall brand, but Howard insisted. That's his business sense... See if he ever gets another TV payday like that again...

    Sure. Howard with his billions is a loser.

    Keep sitting around crying that your government check isn't bigger.

    He is a pathological liar with no moral compass. Money only temporarily distracts him from his psychosis.

    It is impossible to piss on him about what he accomplished. What he did before Buchwald doesn't mean anything. You can pick at any one decision that you claim to have inside knowledge about but he found out a way to get paid billions. He was brilliant at building a product and getting people to pay for it. To deny it is impossible.

    Hitler, mussolini, Stalin all had unlimited money. Now those fools were winners! It all comes down to the money. Yet you spend time smoking celebrity dick on this message board. Why?

    Occasionally when they go to break, Fred plays a bumper of an autistic guy who says he learned how to interact with people by imitating Howard Stern. Which is ironic, because Howard is merely imitating human characteristics himself. He knows that honesty, integrity and compassion are important human traits, so he pretends to possess them. I agree with you that he's just a pathological liar, made extremely proficient thanks to expert advisors and a quarter of his life spent in intense psychotherapy.
