I've been seeing a lot of what you would call "ageism" around TB, lately, mostly directed at Van Halen's new video. It could be my mid-life crisis around the corner, but it kinds of upsets me that people make such comments. ("geriatrics", "drunk grandpa", etc). On the other side, I cannot help but see their point. Songs and stage presence should get more mature along with the band. Maybe that's not the case with VH. It looks (and sounds) like they're aiming for the same feeling they transmitted 20-30 years ago. Maybe that's what they think their audience want, maybe that's what they want. In any case, I respect their choice. Anyway, I think some bands and singers age more gracefully on stage (and recordings) than others. Some are particularly good at it -- actually improving over their 20+ years career. Such as: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Tom Waits Bob Dylan Noel Gallagher is not there yet (a bit too young), but will get there. (I guess it's easier on the singer/songwriter type) Who else?
