Band: Bad Brains
Born Paul D. Hudson, H.R.—an abbreviation for "Human Rights"—converted to the Rasta Movement in 1979. Two years prior, he formed Bad Brains from the jazz fusion band Mind Power. When it came to clothing, H.R. deftly mixed elements of reggae and burgeoning punk culture, but in a distinctly different way than Skinheads in London were doing it. Instead of Harrington jackets and Fred Perry, it was long dreads, beanies, military-style jackets, and a decidedly more casual look. His style now is a little more refined than his early days-mixing in an odd sportcoat and a well-groomed beard, but it's still rebellious and anti-corporate as ever.
