On the topic of hair, the show then spotlighted Griffith and Chuck Long’s bold hair styles from the early 1980s. Watch the segment now.
Listen to Tuesday’s entire #BTNLive below:
Abdullah on clipping the dreadlocks:
“It was just time for a change. I had the dreadlocks for about three years, and I was just thinking about it one day: How would I look with short hair again? I just cut it, and there’s no going back.”
Long on his haircut during his Iowa career:
“Back in the 80’s, I had a lot of hair. That was the style; you had to have it long and in your eyes a little bit. That was a great style!”
Griffith on his haircut as an adolescent:
“I’d love to have that back. It was like silk, Dave.”
