Stop the Internet! John Oates Regrowing His Mustache?!


Over at the Daily RFT, my colleague Chad Garrison reports on a press release sent over today by the American Mustache Institute -- a press release that insinuates that John Oates (who is appearing at the organization's 'Stache Bash in October) is regrowing his famed mustache for the occasion!

John Oates, one of the most famous mustached rock 'n soul performers in music history, will reunite with his mustache as headliner of the American Mustache Institute's 'Stache Bash 2009, presented by Quicken Online.
The show will be the first appearance of Oates and his mustache since the two parted ways, reportedly in Tokyo in 1990. His mustache has since gone on to star in the new animated series "J-Stache," while Oates has continued to tour the world.

"We are proud to be bringing the two back together for the first time," said Dr. Abraham Froman, executive director of the American Mustache Institute. "This will be an important event, not unlike the moment when Frank Sinatra reunited Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin or when the cast of "Saved by the Bell" appeared on the Jimmy Fallon Show. It's big."
Holy shit, you guys. Read the rest here. By the way, you can follow J-Stache on Twitter.
