    Well, I'm 41 today. Not sure how many more years I have to go before I'm playing the rec room at the retirement home.

    you've still got 59 years left in you :)
    then you could be the first ever 100year old rock star!

  6. nope, your never to old to rock. So keep on rocking:bassist:


    also Happy B-day
     
  7. At 41, you're still a kid :)

    I'm 50, and still going strong...

    We rock as hard as ever - it just takes us longer to recover...
     
  8. Rock in roll is no longer a new music form. Many of the founders have died from old age.

    Keep on rocking!

    happy birthday!

    two examples of guys still rockin'....
    Rush - sounding as good as (maybe better than?) ever!
    The Police - Andy Summers was in his 40s during their heyday. he's 64 on this current tour!

    At 38 I am busier now than ever before.....and wiser :smug:
    It's not like being an athlete where your body gives out and you can't play at the same level. With music it's knowledge and hearing... Your stage outfits may not be as appealing to others as you get older though...:D Play on.

    If we assume an avergae life of 80 years, you have 39 years of fun, love and music to go.

    Keep rocking and Happy B-Day !

    OH, please!!!! I'm older than you and not only still going strong, but getting better every day. Have you SEEN the Rolling Stones lately? Walkers and all, still going. Paul Mccartney? Geddy Lee? all older than we are. And, FYI, 40 is the new TWENTY.
     
  13. hey, the original Comets are still going and they still know how to rock AND swing. One of their tunes is even called "You're Never Too Old to Rock"
     
  14. Never trust anyone over 30.


    :D

    I can't wait to play the rec room at the retirement home. All those horny old broads looking for sex, drugs (viagra) and rock and roll. ;)
     
  16. First of all...41 is not too old too rock. I'm 45, and actually look 35 I've been told.
    Heck, if I was rich and had a face lift like Gene Simmons.....;)

    Happy Birthday......

    Never too old to rock....

    JUST TOO OLD TO LIFT YOUR GEAR! :bassist:

    Happy B-Day! I remember 41... At 52 (just over the half way point), I just picked up the bass, am taking lessons from two different teachers and laying down the groove! I'm also training for my 8th marathon, working on writing a book and maintaining a very full marital and family therapy practice. Too old...baloney!!
