Weird Beard

A number of you have expressed an opinion on John's beard. So we decided we would put up a few choice shots of the man himself and the beards that inspire him! We have Jeremy Beadle, Animal, Chewy and Ray LaMontagne! and off course Live Drive's very own John McEvoy... What a man. Feel free to add other bearded gents who may in fact be Mr McEvoy in disguise!!
