    Duck Dynasty's controversial star Phil Robertson would seem an unlikely style inspiration for the politically liberal Michael Stipe, best known as the lead singer for R.E.M., but it’s happening.

    Stipe, 56, was snapped sporting a lengthy, solid gray beard as he campaigned for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders this week in New York. Reportedly, no duck calls were made at the rally.
    Stipe is the latest to rock a beard similar to the one that’s become Robertson’s signature look; Both David Letterman and Randy Quaid have tried it, too.

    Robertson decided to keep his facial hair long because of his profession, he explained to Parade in 2013.

    “The original purpose of the beards was to help with the wind when it’s blowing in your face,” the 69-year-old reality star said. “When you’re out there in the woods hunting like we are all the time, we found that facial hair helps you to stay a lot warmer."

    Kingpin actor Quaid, 65, showed off a massive, unruly beard and flowing mane in October, when he appeared for a hearing before Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board to deal with legal woes. Appearance was obviously not his biggest concern at the time.

    If I was a retired rock and roll star I'd probably have a stupid beard too. I hate shaving.

    Stipe = an overrated blowhard who takes himself way too seriously.

    This!

    They were the biggest joke band to somehow make it into the Rock H.O.F., until Green Day stole that crown away from them. :facepalm:


    :gayflag:




    Rolling Stone rag magazine even listed their lame ass guitarist in the 50 all time greatest. :haha:

    I still remember a bunch of douches from my college days. They all patted themselves on the back for being "nonconformists" because they listened to REM and other shitty college radio bands. Yeah, you all dress the same, have the same posters in your dorm rooms, and listen to the same harrible music. Way to "noncoform!"

    As for Stipe, I recall a reporter asking him about a video on MTV at the time called "Spam" that was a spoof of the REM song "Stand." Did he have a sense of humor about it? NOOOO!!! He acted like someone took a shit on the Mona Lisa. I can't stand a person who takes himself so seriously.

    Man, I loved that band in the 80s but--politics aside--their music turned to shit at least 20 years ago.

    How about feeling the burn in my wallet?

    He still owes me for hands-down the worst concert I ever saw, back in 1987. That was in his Michael Hutchence days when his hair was long on top of his head. Changed outfits every song, like Madonna or something. Fucking annoying as shit. Asshat.
