Counting Crows Singer Adam Duritz Cut off His Iconic Hair

The singer was “Hanginaround” in London and got a haircut

August 15, 2019

Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz has had quite a week.

The “Mr. Jones” singer posted a string of photos on his Instagram page on Wednesday, showing a family visit to his winery we didn’t know he had, a promo for the podcast we weren’t aware he did, and a few bottles of wine we wish were ours. Where have we been?

With all this new information, we found ourselves taking stock of what we do know about the Counting Crows frontman. Unmistakable voice behind some of our favorite hits? That still checks out. Amazing head full of dreadlocks that he has had since the day we met him? What’s that now? Flip to the last photo… well, alright.

Good grief. Adam Duritz got the most exciting haircut of the year.

“Oh yeah, I flew to London and shaved my head!” Duritz throws in at the end of an action-packed comment. “Anarchy In The UK indeed mother*******!!!”

The singer is still in London, the site of the “great de-dreading”, and appears to still be adjusting to life without the locks.

“Went for a walk in London this morning and nearly froze my brain right out of my head,” he wrote. “Apparently it’s a whole new world out there. Immediately set out for Piccadilly with Z in search of a hatter and bought hats.”

“Hatters...right? Who knew? We clearly need more Hatters in New York. Not to mention Cobblers. Don’t even get me started on Milliners and Haberdashers.”

Congratulations on the new cut Adam. We have reason to believe, maybe this year will be better than the last.
