Roger Daltry does not seem old but some seem old before they reach 20: My grandson for example.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Roger Daltrey is a legend
Justin Bieber is a putz

Age doesn't matter, it's what you do. Smile McCartney is rocking at 71 years of age, Daltrey at 70, and if Bieber isn't careful, he'll be in a federal pen SERVING 70 years! (One can only hope Smile ).

And lastly to quote Indiana Jones: "It's not the years sweetheart, it's the mileage."

People sure seem to like to rag on Justin Bieber. I don't really care for the type of music he sings but the kid is very talented. Fact is he's done a lot of good. Among other things, he's granted over 200 wishes for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. And really, if you think about it, his antics over the last year or two pale in comparison to some of the things The Beatles and The Who were up to back in the day.

I am of the age where I want to reread Steppenwolf...I think I'd understand it now.

I just picked up 'The Prophet' to reread. I never knew it was about getting ready to croak. Age teaches you curious things.

And I see myself a hundred times a year in various young people, making the same mistakes, climbing the same rungs, chewing on the same regrets. I keep silent.

I can't wait for what's more to come. Very interesting so far, except I seem to have more age spots than Monte Burns.

Take a look at King Lear. I'm still probably 20 years too young to fully understand it, but I understand it a heck of a lot better than I did 20 years ago. How Shakespeare wrote this at 40 or so is extraordinary to me.

On a similar note, Pearl Jam hasn't been musically relevant (IMO) since the 90s. Then out of nowhere, these 50-year-olds put out a song like Sirens. Holy cats, there's hope for us as we age!
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

And yet visits the Anne Frank House and all the kid can up with is "I really think she would have been a "belieber." Unlike John Lennon's "Jesus comment,", Bieber's was so very inappropriate. But it really isn't just Bieber that is the problem. The music industry is fragmented - much more so than ever. The 1990s were the last decade that marked any innovation in rock and it was a hell of a decade.

Look at what we have now: Thicke, Gaga, Bieber, etc., etc. There is no innovation because innovation has given way to pre-packaged pap. And what sets The Beatles apart from every other rock band is the undeniable fact that they were simultaneously hugely popular and artistically influential; No band has ever successfully straddled both sides of the industry at the same time. Few individual artists have accomplished it. Michael Jackson, Elvis, and Sinatra are the three that immediately come to mind.

Also, many of the old groups could actually sing LIVE, and play real instruments.

That's what my generation says about the 1970s, my older cousins about the 1960s, and my uncles about the 1950s. Of course WE are right. Smile

52 is kind of a magical age but 55 has more perks! Guess I have to wait a few years for those perks and be content with being a card for now.

Age is about wisdom, so enjoy these 3 quotes:

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
Socrates

I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.

What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.
