Del Shannon

Del Shannon was a singer/songwriter best known for the classic 'Runaway'. Unfortunately his career was overshadowed by the song and he struggled to maintain his early success.



A tragic figure who battled with alcoholism and depression, to begin balding on top of all this must have felt like a proper kick in the balls.



I'm not sure exactly when he started wearing but by the mid 60s he was certainly employing the combover.



Shannon committed suicide on February 5th 1990, his body found minus his hairpiece.
