I was thinking back on my music career and realized I was almost always the old guy in the band. First band I was ever in I was 16 and the rest of the guys were 14-15, not huge, but thats where it began. When I was 24 I was playing with 21-22 year olds. Here I am on the cusp of 31 playing with people who are 30 (same age yay!) , a 23 and 25 year old. My band before this was a 26,25, 22, and 20 year old. Being the older guy I tended to be unofficial band leader. Being the mature one and the one who wanted to make the band succeed or atleast play some shows. Seemed I was the only one motivated while the others would want to noodle or get high. Anybody else have tales of being the old guy...how'd it go for you? Is it a point of pride? Whats your story?
