We have been so enamored of our boys and their facial hair, I thought it might be interesting to post some of our favorite facial hair pics to compare and contrast the splendor of their beards, 'staches, soul patches and stubble.
Beard burn be damned! We ladies like our men HAIRY!
On with the show!

First off we have our beloved "Fearless Leader" sporting a fine beard in his early years. Also note Don and Don's competitive facial growth! Very Impressive!!

Our Own Glenn did not leave it at that tho. He seemed to waffle a bit between..

and

and

Ahhh Foolish youth!

NOT to be out done, Our own Sweet Don had his OWN version of what a manly crop should be.
This is what I call the baby goatee. Still in it's youth but promising!
http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/eaglesCR01.jpg

SOON, however It became a full fledged growth of manly .. uhh.. hairiness... over taking and completely obliterating any hope on Glenn's behalf of being as hairy as Don (Facially anyway *G*). Victory is sweet!
http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/eaglesHCSB07.jpg

Did he stop there? NO! Our Don's search for perfection took him through many fazes. From...http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/DHenleyLive70s.jpg

Too...
http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/DHenleyTrisha.jpg
Such Diversity! Such Manliness! Such... Hair!

NOT to be out done.. Our own Timmy had his fling with manly growth. His boyish good looks and gentle ways were put aside to sport the popular SOUL PATCH! Here in it's infancy..
http://www.timothybschmitonline.com/images/f1tbspoint.jpg

Not for long however! It soon spread to the rest of his face!
http://www.timothybschmitonline.com/images/musicaresrehearsal1.jpg

BUT, with a little training and learning how to control it, he soon mastered his facial hair growth
http://www.timothybschmitonline.com/images/f1namm1.jpg

Timothy's Facial hair now under control, we can move on to our own Joseph.
In his youth, the traditional handlebar 'stache seemed to be his forte
http://www.joewalshonline.com/images/JWalshPose.jpg

This soon became a intrigal part of Joe's persona
http://www.joewalshonline.com/images/JWalshRedBandana.jpg

But as Joe matured, so did his idea of facial hair expression! Here he is sporting a fine and well developed soul patch!
http://www.joewalshonline.com/images/JWalshDan.jpg

It seems that our Boys have all had their own forrays into facial hair exploration and come out the other end the wiser not to mention the less hairy

God Bless every little hair on their heads, faces and.. well.. where ever :):angel:

Very nice, Ticky! Some great shots you have amassed! I especially:heart:the B&W closeup of Don & Glenn (even though I usually prefer a short-haired Glenn, he is tooo HSG here!) Even more exciting and HSG is the B&W closeup of short-haired Glenn--I really LOVE that look!:inlove:
Who are the women in the solo shots with Don (one blonde and one dark), and with Timothy (blonde):?:

The Blond with Timmy is a fan and the blond with Don is Trisha Yearwood, I dont know who the brunette is.

(Im planning a soul patch-off for Joe and Tim and if anyone can find Don or Glenn with a soul-patch let me know!!)

I especially love the b & w oldie of Don and Glenn, too. Too hot to handle! :heart:

A 'soul patch off' - a battle between which of them has the most impressive soul patch.

I've never seen either Glenn or Don with one.

Glenn briefly regrew his moustache when he appeared in Let's Get Harry:
http://www.glennfreyonline.com/images/GFreyLGH.jpg

And he had a lot of stubble during the Miami Vice period.

I like facial hair on a guy but i tend to lean toward the stubble side and the Eagles can definitely pull it off really well. Here's Don with a few good examples.

Yum! Very good examples of what I like too, pb. :heart: A little stubble. Not much on the full beard.

I love Don with stubble!

Same here. Love stubble, but beards are too much. The exception to my rule was Don back in the day. With an afro like that, you need a beard to balance it out. He went from extremely hot to rather ridiculous in the space of one shave (IMHO). Luckily, he got rid of the afro soon thereafter, and regained his "hot" status (although I would argue not as hot as that afro/beard combo. But its time had gone. :( ) Nowadays, I love a little stubble on Don.

Don at maximum hotness:
http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/DHenleyOOTNSB.jpg

Don without the facial hair, but still with the afro - mistake!
http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/DHenleyJTB01.jpg

No afro, no facial hair. Much better than #2, although not as good as #1:
http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/DHenleyICSS02.jpg

While repetitive of an above poster, I love this look for current Don:

I agree Soda & Brooke, the first one is the sexiest Don ever!

Awww I love Don with the fro and no facial hair, but bearded Don is nice too. Oh my, I almost said Breaded instead of Bearded. :lol:

ticky
10-23-2008, 11:26 AM
Breaded is a little harsh... it means frying or baking and that's just not a nice thing to do to poor ol Don. I much prefer chocolate dipped and covered with whipped cream!! *G*

I love you for starting this thread, Ticky. Facial hair is definitely my thing :smitten:

I'm in total agreement about HC Don. The beard and 'fro is drop dead gorgeous. My sig is a good example of the kind of Henley facial hair that makes me swoon.

This is one of my absolute favourite pictures and it can never be viewed enough, IMHO!

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c374/Lulabelle_/DonHenley70s.jpg

I'm also a big fan of the F1 stubble.

Glenn looks especially hot here...

http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/eaglesGWA09.jpg

Some lighter stubble works for me too:

http://www.donhenleyonline.com/images/DHenley1975boat.jpg

Eagles facial hair cannot be discussed without an honourable mention for the 70s 'tache. I'm tempted to hand the crown to Glenn, but he has stiff competition.

As for Timothy, he rocks the soul patch. Along with Mr Walsh.

Ok, I think it's time for our

FIRST ANNUAL SOUL-PATCH OFF!!

provided one or more of our adorable crew happens to take it upon themselves to grow some facial hair in the "patch area" in the next year, making some kind of comparison competition possible, otherwise, whats the point? been done.. here in fact, right now!

LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!

Our first contestant, weighing in at (well thats not important since we're talking about soul patches and who weighs their soul patch...) With a VERY impressive specimen....

Joseph Fidler Walch - Notice the texture and coloring of this handsome thick patch. A real challenge!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/joepatch1.jpg

This example of Joe's soul patch is truly impressive and adds so much to the hat.. and coat.. in fact, the whole ensemble!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/joepatch2.jpg

Here is casual Joe showing that a soul patch is NOT just for the stage, but can be worn anytime!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/joepatch3.jpg

However, a sporty soul-patch can be very effective on stage as well!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/joepatch4.jpg

VERY Fine examples! Please lets all have a hand for this contestant as he makes his final runway pass....
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/joepatch5.jpg
VERY Impressive indeed! (polite clapping)


Our next contender, Timothy Bruce Schmit, was considered an underdog in this competition. Let's see if this wannabe can come from behind!

OOOOoo here he is coming on strong with a direct hit right to the chin!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/timpatch1.jpg

Speaking of chins! This impressive display may actually count against this patch-alete as it may NOT be technically considered a "soul-patch". Im afraid we'll have to leave this one up to the discretion of the judges!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/timpatch2.jpg

That was definitely a risk for our up and comer! It seems our bad boy of beards is trying to rewin any lost votes with a classic display!
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/timpatch3.jpg

Again, with the classic patch, Tim is going for the casual fan picture on the street look.
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/timpatch4.jpg

And now, lets have a rousing round of applause for or Timmy as he takes his final romp in this years patch-off with a very classic and classy display of what can only be called the formal Pièce d'Âme Or.. soul patch with class.
http://www.tickypages.com/picturebin/timpatch5.jpg

BRAVO BRAVO BELLA! BELLA!

Now it's up to you, Judges!! Who wins? Will you count Timothy's small goatee indiscretion against him? Whats more important? sheer volume? or style? perhaps both? remember.. ITS UP TO YOU to declare a winner!

Wildthyme
10-26-2008, 12:34 AM
Well, although as far as I am concerned the only good soul patch is the soul patch washing down the drain after its met its demise at the hand of a razor, I do feel a need to put my vote in here...

For me the winner is Timmy. If ya just gotta grow chin mold then keeping it neat and trimmed is the way to go. Timmy's soul patch is generally well kept unlike Joe, who's clump of chin hair unfortunately looks a bit too much like a small rodent up and died under his lip... (sorry Joe, I think you are great but just say no to the lip fur from now on, please).

sodascouts
10-26-2008, 12:55 AM
DEFINITELY Timothy. Joe's looks too scraggly. I love it on Tim, though.

AWE come on!!! Poor Joey! It's a sign of his manliness *G* he's a hairy guy and proud of it!
I like it Joey, I think it's sexy.

PERSONALLY I think Timmy's (while it's very nice and looks quite handsome on you, Tim because I know you're anxiously reading this and biting your nails as to the out-come) looks a little like he held his breath and blew out really hard to try and grow a beard, and that was all he got.. (Sorry Tim, you know I love ya)

Troubadour
10-26-2008, 08:32 AM
I'm casting my vote for Tim. I love Joe in any facial hair phase, but Tim's soul patch has really grown on me (not literally) and I just think it works.

Freypower
10-26-2008, 06:20 PM
I will go with Tim in this instance too.

These are all good, but it occurred to me that there was a significant moment in facial hair which hasn't been posted yet:

Lovely, stubble Glenn is sporting there, Fp. Don't think I've seen it before. Very sexy indeed.

As for the patch-off, I must go with Timothy for the win. He's just got "soul-patch class" as far as I'm concerned. :nod:

For me, I would have to say it's a tie. I like both Tim and Joe with the patch. I think it suits each other equally. I think they both look great with or without the patch.

Ooh, I'd forgotten the Expedition Earth stubble - love the way it develops through the programme!

Don can do stubble very nicely too.

As for that last one of Glenn, I apologise for repeating myself if I say it looks like he's just tumbled out of bed.:blush::censored:

Unfortunately, probably the only pix of Glenn when he wasn't photogenic...he looks kinda possessed with the red-eye-and-red-mouth-syndrome...
