Tony Bennett’s Hair Apparent

There was lots of love for Tony Bennett at the 60th Grammy Awards last night. And why not? He’s 91 and still performing – indeed he and co-presenter John Legend broke into New York, New York onstage to set the tone of the evening. There was some chatter about whether the young Mr. Legend over-sang his elder on that final note.  But that’s small potatoes compared to the real Bennett news – his moustache.

What prompted the legendary crooner to go all 70s porn star? Perhaps he’s a fan of Milo Ventimiglia’s Jack on This is Us.  Or Kenneth Branagh’s Poirot in the remake of Murder on the Orient Express. No matter the follicle inspiration, it’s a dapper grooming choice and we approve.
