Hair Affair

I love when Archie Comics tackled rock and roll in the silver and bronze eras... sometimes they captured the correct "vibe" (as the Seeker used to say), but often it would be obvious you were reading the works of middle aged men who didn't really get it. This page from ARCHIE'S JOKE BOOK #116 (1967) is a hilarious example that falls somewhere between. Fred Andrews isn't really showing disdain for the music, but it's obvious that the artist didn't spend a lot of time doing research on what the bands actually looked like. Is that Bob Dylan or Beethoven? I may post more Archie Rock & Roll strips if I find the time to do some scanning...
