The Grease star wore a faded denim jacket with a crewneck black shirt underneath, and black pants.  

He sported his usual shaved head with a full, neatly-groomed, salt-and-pepper beard as he hugged the drummer, 59. 

Tommy was dressed in belted jeans and a black tank top that showed off his sleeve of tattoos.

His shaggy, brown, haircut was fashionably disheveled and had a few streaks of blonde highlights at the front.
