If you’re between the ages of 33 and 40, we have some very important news to share. Adam Duritz — the Counting Crows singer with the thick, artificially voluminous dreadlocks — has shaved his head. Ever since you first listened to August and Everything After in 1993, ever since you first yelled at your friends to please turn off “Mr. Jones” (just me?), ever since Duritz sang about paving paradise and putting up a parking lot with Vanessa Carlton, he has had dreadlocks. Now, as we’ve learned from an Instagram post by Duritz himself, his head is clean-shaven. The thick, dark facial hair remains, but the rest is buzzed down to fuzz. The singer put a bunch of photos in a slideshow, and the very last one is him with his new look, accompanied by the note in the caption, “Oh yeah, I flew to London and shaved my head! Anarchy In The UK indeed motherfuckers!!!”
