“Did you notice that Jackson Browne has never changed his hairstyle?” Jon said to Ronnie after attending the folk singer’s concert.
Ronnie snarled back, “How dare you talk about his hair!”
“Ronnie, I love his music, but I think he needs a bit of a follicular makeover.”
Ronnie shook his head. “You’re just insecure about men who still have their hair. You’re bald. You don’t have a right to talk about people with hair.”
“Ronnie,” Jon said. “I’m sorry to offend your idol, but I’m just making an observation. I think he would look better with a more contemporary cut.”
“The way a man wears his hair is no business of yours or mine, Jon. It’s a personal decision, and it should stay that way. I don’t tell you that you’d look better with a hairpiece, do I?”
Ronnie, noticeably upset, walked off in a huff.
To this day, Jon and Ronnie have a strained friendship and stay away from specific taboo topics such as a man’s haircut. In the meantime, Jackson Browne still maintains the same hairstyle and has a successful career despite it.
