This is probably a dumb question... but I was just wondering because it seems like his hair started thinning in the late 80's but I've never seen any photo of him that showed any bald spots, is that because he wore a toupee?
Never looked like it. Natural thinning and even in TATDOOL it looked as naturally "grained" as possible. No signs of plugs or unnaturally opaque hair.
I believe he was natural except he may have dyed his hair Brown later on. .... I'm just guessing
He never wore a toupee except for music videos and maybe a few parties etc - and in these cases it was a prop and worn for fun.
He had a thinning crown and recession at the temples from the mid-80s onwards. His hair first started thinning around 1983. Before that he had a really thick hairline. By 1990/91 the recession was quite visible - but for his age it was probably better than average anyway. Not everyone has a hairline like Brian. Brain's crown has started thinning but his hairline is unbelievable for someone in his late 60s.
Pretty sure Freestone said Freddie used to get pissed when people thought he was balding, when actually it was his double crown...although not doubt by the mid eighties it was thinning and in certain Miracle/Innuendo videos you can see it.
If Freddie were to have lived to this day, i can imagine he would have done something about it...probably a hair transplant or plugs.
