KOJAK … Stevie Rachelle of Tuff shows off shaved head



Stevie Rachelle of Tuff shows off shaved head


LOS ANGELES, California — There’s a new Kojak in town and his name is Stevie Rachelle.

From bad boy to bald boy and just in time for a fall run of shows, Tuff frontman Stevie Rachelle has posted an image online sporting a freshly shaved head.

The California based singer has also posted a short video of the clippers starting to clear what hair he had left.

He’s also posted a subsequent video of him appearing to be going full Britney Spears.

Has he lost his mind, or just what’s left of the stringy left overs from 1989?

See the screen captures, videos and statement below.


I can’t say what prompted me to do this today, but I did.

It’s no secret that I don’t have the best hair in rock. And it was just time to clear the deck.

Anyone that knows me well, is aware that I am the first one to take a shot at my own shortcomings, along with anyone else.

If you’re a fat slob, then you get the fat jokes. If you’re short, then you get the midget jokes.

Or if you’ve been dealt the never-ending forehead – then you get called baldy, chrome dome and so on.

I love to dish it out, but I can also take it.

I still love my hats and headbands, but what hair was left is now in a zip lock bag.

Maybe I should eBay it?

So in a tribute to one of my childhood favorite TV shows, let me say Kojak is back.

Call me Kojak.

I can’t wait to play shows this fall and we start this week at “80’s in the Park” with Quiet Riot, see everyone Friday night in Florida.
