    Back before the pop revolution of the 1960's people used to call it "long hair" music, at least in the USA.

    It's occasionally used over here too.

    These conductors seem to favour BIG hair rather than long hair. Dudamel must get through some volumising mousse.

    Stokowski fought the good fight against male pattern baldness.

    No, I think he's just jumping in that picture.

    I think Solti and Mitropoulos mutually lost for all time.

    I have nothing else to add.

    It's said that Stokowski taught Rodzinsky how to comb his hair as part of his apprenticeship!
