"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

I was disgusted or bored with whatever broadcast television had available last night so I fired up the Netflix. For several months I've had a documentary "in my list" and I finally watched it last night. It's entitled "Muscle Shoals" and is about the Muscle Shoals' sound and the 2 recording studios located in the smaller, northern Alabama city.

I had no idea how much great music came out of there! The movie's opening credits play as Wilson Pickett belts out "Land of 1000 Dances" and the hits just keep coming. What a great story and I may have to watch it a second time with my son who intends to be a music education major in college.

SO my point in putting anything on here is that the record producer that started things in Muscle Shoals - founder of FAME studios - Rick Hall, now sports a handlebar moustache.

I was a little surprised. Especially since all of the archival footage used in the movie shows him clean shaven, with some pretty big 1970's sideburns at times.

I did a little more research, despite all the hit songs that he produced, and the skads of artists that wanted to record in Muscle Shoals, he and his original rhythm section "The Swampers" are still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I will reserve further commentary.

Here's something else dealing with a celebrity. The stunt pilot that did the helicopter stunts in the opening of the James Bond movie "Spectre" sports a HB.

Those stunts were something else. Watched that with my wife and eldest. The return of Blofeld to the 007 storyline. Too bad the stunt pilot didn't have a cameo later in the film to show off the moustache.

Found this and I thought you all would enjoy. This is not my grandfather but someone else's.

He DOES look like Matthew McConaughey...

All he's missing is a Lincoln.

John Hurt is a long-time favourite actor of mine, and I was delighted to see that he chooses to grow his moustache between acting jobs......prepare yourselves for this!!!

I saw that moustache with his goatee companion up close somewhere in England and It's a nice moustache indeed. Next time we meet at the Windsor Castle I'll tell you the story.

Not always "between acting jobs". In the movie Snowpiercer Hurt sports his epic mustache. (a decent movie, not bad - worth watching)
