"Jesus was referred to often in the Bible as "Rabbi." If he was an actual rabbi, he would definitely have followed Jewish law which forbade men from clipping the sides of their hair and their beards "

Plus all the main religious leaders especially in the beginning of them. With Judiasm, Muslim & Hinduism. Also believing in Long hair and beards always ;)

Well, Jesus most likely wasn't Caucasian. In terms of facial structure and complexion he probably had much more in common with the picture above than with the usual historic depiction the public is familiar with through movies and paintings which are not based on factual evidence whatsoever. Let's put it this way: long hair or short hair, beard or not, if Jesus were to enter the USA today, he might be apprehended as a terror suspect. ;)

The most realistic portrayal of Jesus Christ:

Unlikely, they'd probably search him for any fresh fruit or veg from the kibbutz and ask him if he's carrying any cream cheese for his lox bagels :lol:

Cream cheese and lox and bagels- sounds tasty- I'd never had them before, but once when I was doing volunteer work someone brought them in- a very tasty snack.

If Jesus were to enter the USA thirty years ago he'd probably be shadowed by the government as a communist or at least a *gasp* socialist. As for villains with long hair, what about Charles Manson, or Redbeard?

Good guys with short or no hair, would Mr. Clean count? :D

@Lou- I'm about to watch it again myself- good movie ;)

Hi Jay Jay - LOL - think Rasputin may have been an exception to the rule! Although was he a genius? He appeared to have the Romanov family in his thrall.

Hi Rosemarie, yes I knew that guys name would crop up eventually. I thought Jimled would have brought him up coming from that part of the world?

It seems to me from the 60's & 70's free and easier attitude to long hair with guys..
Folks in this generation have gone back 2000 years to the Roman's attitude about this

I still believe Rory's answer to being questioned about his long hair is the best. On the 1979 Kid Jensen Round Table show.
I've put on RORY GALLAGHER ~ Blu-ray DVD CD Vinyl Interviews All Recordings section now ;)

Just as I'm finishing writing this I'm seeing a transvestite on tv with long hair. That's seems to me more accepted here in guys now. What In The World :roll:

Love that J, glad to see its not just me that thinks men with long hair are superior

Just to add my tuppence worth, ancient Gaelic warriors eg. Cuchulain had long hair and were punished and shamed by having their heads shaved, I envisage Rory as a warrior weilding his Strat in the battle against mainstream "music" 'insert long haired Rory smilies'

Of course you can include Jim Morrison. I wished you'd have put a pic with a full beard though Jim. As he does look like a real 'Warrior of Rock' then :)

As Keltic Wolf refers too.. Or at least a bearded baby ;)

JimLed can you not insert / create for us some "LONG HAIRED SMILES" ? As Keltic Wolf requested too, for us all to put up please??

PS. After all, in this day and age it could be classed as sexist, just to have short haired smilies :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry to throw a dampener on things, but Jim Morrison was not a good guy ... he was a sociopath.
Please can we exclude Morrison from this list of 'good guys'?
This is not a list of talented artists, which would be a different list ...
