Elton John Jokes About His Battles With Hair Loss

Elton John laughed off the issues he had with hair loss in the ‘70s and ’80s, noting that ever since he started wearing a wig, no one seems to bother with it any more.

He went through a series of attempts to save himself from baldness, with results that failed to satisfy but left press photographers “obsessed” with trying to catch him without a hat.

“In the late ‘80s, just before I got sober, I decided I’d had enough and dyed what was left of my hair platinum blond,” John wrote in his new memoir Me (via the Daily Mail). “Then after I got sober, I had a weave done, where they take what’s left of your hair and attach more hair to it. I debuted my new look at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. A writer noted that I looked like I had a dead squirrel on my head. I was forced to concede he had a point.”
