This is degenerating into snake-coiling word play and is not addering anything to the topic in question.

Alice Cooper will die on stage 90 years old electrocuted by mistake.

Something to do with McCartney having a good, young(-ish) band as well, possibly. Perhaps Van Morrison could be rejuvenated in the same way if he employed hungry young backing musicians instead of playing with tired old farts like Georgie Fame.

I don't have a problem with old bands reforming. Nobody is forcing anybody to buy the new albums or go to the gigs.
I just saw Macca at Hampden and he was fantastic. He was bloody awful at times in the 80's but if he'd chucked it then we'd have missed the revival he's enjoyed since Flaming Pie in the late 90's.

Tom Jones, whilst a great vocalist has never made many great records. He's just an old karaoke machine. He murdered Kiss and Burning Down The House amongst many others.

He sang that! And " I Ain't Downhearted but I'm Getting There" about not achieving huge fame and fortune as a musical performer.

Also did Nat King Cole's "Meet Me at No Special Place"

Baby, we two can't get along,
I'm never right, you're never wrong.
So meet me at no special place,
And I'll be there at no particular time.

Nicely poignant as one of the couples we were with are NEVER on time or in the right place.

My favourite Allison title is "Your Molecular Structure". Still not sure if it's a love song or a lust song:

Your molecular structure is really somethin' fine,
A first-rate example of functional design

Must check him out, Carra. Great titles for songs.

Perhaps not a reunion but just been to see Mose Allison in Glasgow who is 82! Wrote Parchman Farm and one of his songs about the treatment of WW2 servicemen was the inspiration for Townsend's "My Generation". And he is basically who Georgie Fame swallowed hook, line and sinker.

Great stuff! Anyone who can write "Your Mind is on Vacation but your Mouth is Working Overtime " or "I Met A Million Dollar Baby In A Five And Ten Cent Store" is alright by me.

Here he is from a while ago.

I've been to all Rufus Wainwright's concerts and at least half the audience have been ancients like me.

I felt like I was the oldest one at Muse in Dublin last year even tho I am not the half century yet for a couple of years.

I can't help but ask the question, do the peeps who think that wrinklies are too old to perform have the same thoughts about them attending concerts? I feel guilty now for going to see Never the Bride earlier this year and the majority of the band (if not all) are young enough to be my offspring.

Ten Years After still lookin fit with their new axeman Gooch. Would love to see them.
So...let them be. Or is in music some specific time to retire ?

Tom Petty and co. looked and sounded just as good on recent film. I'd certainly risk going to see him.

Another point that has been missed is that it is no headline grabbing exciting wow factor thing anymore. It's just another band reunion, (yawn).
Also could it be said that the bands with the tallent stayed together such as Bruce and bunch (obviously I'm not including the Stones here). The ones with not much going for them dragged it along til they had enough known stuff for the greatest hits and then thankfully chucked it in.

Lots of other wrinklies included in a very varied and good looking Jazz and Blues programme

Eric Burdon and the Animals, Brian Auger's Oblivion Express, Peter Green and Friends (who ever he can wake up on the night I assume) Acker Bilk.......

Thanks for the warning, BOF. Just caught the details out of the corner of my eye last night and didn't really investigate. Only really know them from the old Woodstock thing. Sounds like I'd have better chance of seeing the real group at Edinburgh Zoo!

BOF © says:
Sorry Carra without Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson and Bob "The Bear" Hite it's not Canned Heat but some band playing Canned Heat's songs. Even the three you mention Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra, Larry "The Mole" Taylor and Harvey "The Snake" Mandel where not original members BUT did constitute what is regarded as the 'classic' line up with Wilson & Hite I don't think they could tempt me to travel.
best bones
B.O.F.
