Michael McDonald: Motown Man Beard

beard of mcdonaldTry to tell me you've never looked with envy upon the face of Michael McDonald, and I'll know you're either a liar or a God. This guy has been dazzling audiences with his blue-eyed soul and his trademark beard for decades.

Thanks to Eric for nominating McDonald for Man Beard status, but frankly this is a man for whom nomination is merely a formality. You see, the nomination process is polite and democratic and it creates the appearance of fairness. But our dark little secret at Man Beard Blog is that there's nothing democratic or fair about beards. God has either given you a glorious beard or he hasn't.

michael mcdonald beardWhen you've not only been blessed with a salt-and-pepper masterpiece, but you've also been a member of Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers, you don't politely ask to be included on the Man Beard List. You demand to be listed, and if your demands are not met, you simply slaughter your way to the top. That is the Michael McDonald way.

Any man who disguises between being a pianist and a keyboardist belongs on this site.

I assume you mean "distinguishes," and you are absolutely right. His artistic creativity demands that he acknowledge the difference between the two EXTREMELY different instruments.

Mike said...

yes, distinguishes. I'm typing like Eric today. Anyway, great work here.

I would like to nominate The Gambler, Kenny Rogers, for man-beard status.

Only with a man-beard, can one be provided with the true knowledge of "when to hold 'em" and "when to fold 'em."

Mike has been one heavy beard for sure. Here is a cover of his taking it to the street, spoof:
