If you would rather be in a band, then join one. I used to be the singer in a band a long time ago. I started as their roadie and became the singer when the singer left. Nobody wanted to give up their day jobs or try to get more gigs, or get recorded, and I came to regret that, although my own attitude at the time was no different.
I work in a law firm as a patent agent, and I have only met two other men (and not many more women) who had long hair in the various law forms where I have worked. One of the firms had a partner with shoulder length hair, who always wore a Hawaiian shirt. The same firm had a long-haired paralegal who was the son of another partner. Even when I was an engineer, long hair was the exception. Whatever we do for a living we are in the minority. Music is probably the biggest exception.
As for political conservatism, I think you will find Hairball is a conservative (why he said nothing I can only speculate?), and also a guy called Duncan who you can also find on here, so it is not unusual. OTOH, I am another Liberal.
