Yeah…April 9, 1987, that’s the day No-Shave-November started…of course, it didn’t really catch on until November though.”
Probed as to why he has only a light beard now, Gano responded, “Oh, I had to give it up, because people started thinking I was Santa Claus. I keep it right about here (a two, for facial hair trimmers), because if I shave my face, I look like a child, and I get carded when I go places.”
Gano revealed that he would grow his beard to Chris Neild proportions, but: Read more »
