THEY’RE NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER

July 24, 2022

I just read an article on CNN.com about all these rock stars going out on tour this summer. The article was saying it was the last hurrah for classic rock. Looking at the ages of these people they could be right. The Rolling Stones Jagger and Richards are 78, Bob Dylan is 81, the WHO Daltrey is 78, Townsend is 77, Paul McCartney is 80, Brian Wilson is 80, Clapton is 77 as is Rod Stewart, Elton John is 75 and Roger Waters is 78. the list goes on. There has never been such a collection of again superstars on tour at relatively the same time before. It’s ROCK and ROLL history in the making. The only problem is how much it will cost you. Bruce Springsteen tickets are going at Ticket Master for as much as Four or Five thousand dollars a seat. Now, if you have never seen one of these groups before, you probably think this will be my last chance, so let me tell you a little story if I might. When Frank Sinatra was in New York I think he was in his mid to late 70’. I went to my mom who was a super Sinatra fan. My mom surprised me by saying no she didn’t want to see him when his voice was cracking and he couldn’t do certain songs she wanted to remember him as a young man full of life. I should have listened to her as years later I went to see BB king the great Blues legend who I had never seen before. A friend of mine warned me he was now talking more than singing. He was right, he did 4 of his classics that night and just talked about the old days the rest of the time. The point I’m trying to make is with the price of these tickets today it might be better to get a case of beer but the stereo outside and crank it up with your favorite. You don’t want to see a slighter version of your music God. This has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
