Yu Zhenhuan, World's Hairiest Man (and Rock Star)
has ear hair removed

. .

Another oddly interesting bit of news I came across: World' s Hairiest Man has Ear Hair Removed to Hear. Pictures found at Yu Zhenhuan photo.

from the Yahoo article:
The world's hairiest man, Chinese rock singer Yu Zhenhuan, underwent ear surgery in Shanghai on Friday to remove hair that was impairing his hearing, the Xinhua news agency said on Friday.


Yu was recognized in 2002 as the world's hairiest man by the Guinness Book of Records, Xinhua said.

Rather frightening looking guy, isn't he? He's like a hairier, Chinese version of Lemmy from Motorhead.

08/18/2004 Update:

I just found this article on Yahoo News: China's "hairboy" aspires to be rock star. Apparently Yu is not (or is no longer) the world's hairiest man - a pair of brothers from Mexico now hold that record. But he is still China's hairiest man, which isn't bad considering the number of people in the running there.

I also found a link to his website: http://www.maohai.com/. You can listen to a few of his songs as well:

  • Track 1
  • Track 2
  • Track 3

  • Additional photos (in which he doesn't look quite as frightful as the others I've posted):
