Dregen lost hair to stress
Dregen has released a video for his track Flat Tyre On A Muddy Road – and it’s the first time fans will have seen his bald look. View it below.
The former Backyard Babies guitarist, who’s taken a break from Michael Monroe’s band to promote his self-titled solo debut, explains that his hair started to fall out as he worked his way through a hectic year.
Dregen says: “Here’s the answer to all of you who have asked why I’ve been wearing a hat or bandana for the last six months.
“I became a dad. I was writing and recording my solo album. I was writing and recording the Michael Monroe album. I wrote a 330-page autobiography. I was touring. All at the same time.
“So my hair fell off – overnight. All of it. The doctor called it ‘post traumatic stress disorder.’”
But he’s pleased to report he’ll soon be sporting a head of hair again, and reflects: “Luckily I don’t play or write with my hair… It could have been worse. I could have lost my fingers.”
Dregen – who recently said a Backyard Babies reunion was on the cards – briefly tours the UK in December with Imperial State Electric:
Dec 1: Glasgow Cathouse
Dec 2: London Borderline
Dec 3: Bristol Fleece
