I could maybe list about 4
If you're on stage, and get a bit hot and jump around, so i guess lots of them wear contacts.
2. Buddy Holly
3. The Jesus& Mary Chain (well, they wear sunglasses a lot)
more than you realise probably do just not when on stage.
they just aren't practical. they fog up if it gets warm, they get greasy and then you have to clean 'em or else it's really annoying. fall off your face if you move too much. etc etc etc.
maybe they just dont want to see who their playing too.
Pipped to the post by less than a minute.
But i'm hardly high profile. The main problem is that they arent very practical, they slide off your face and you dont have the hands to push em back, they get covered in beer or misted up if its too sweaty, if you jump about they just fall clean off, i could go on.
That mixed with the fact that contacts/surgery are an easy alternative, and otherwise a good amount of people with glasses can do without them providing they dont have to read/drive.
