    You're 80 years old, shriveled and white-haired, great grandkids playing in the yard outside. Are you still singing along to "Everybody Wants Some" and "Runnin' With the Devil"? And is the volume up really loud because of your hearing deficit? It's going to happen in the future, folks. ("GRANDPA! TURN THAT DOWN!!") [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I'm 22 years old and I kind of dislike old people. The last thing I want to think about is being some old bastard with grey hair who collects social security. Most of these old fucks don't like music anymore - I don't think they like anything except for a senior citizen's discount in a restaurant.

    I'll still be rocking to VH when I'm old. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I don't see how I could just stop.

    I can't wrap my mind around the concept of Van Halen holding the same place as big band or swing music as far as age and listening groups.

    Of course, it just means 78 years afterwards, someone will dig up Van Halen, rerecord a few of their songs, and steal their sound as pop embraces it again for about, oh, 2 months.

    [/Q] You forgot postal worker on there. Other then that mistake though you got me pegged. I am pissed off, I do live in low rent housing since I can't afford any better and I am a musician. Plus, who doesn't wanna be a rock star? BTW, this is more proof that people who take online discussion boards seriously can't take a joke.

    I can't believe how much hostility lies with the youth of America. It's not as if Axe has said he wants to destroy the elderly, he's just telling us what we already know. As for Big Band? pfeh. Let Mavis Hornblower McGee try to match the awesome tones of Kip Winger... I dare you.

    Absolutely, I'll still rock out! It's great being part of the first generation of people whose music pisses off their kids instead of embarrasses them!

    My 2 older kids are into top40 (c)rap, and I'm sure they can't stand it when we go somewhere as a family, cause when I drive, it's my radio!

    My 3-year-old digs Hot For Teacher & Ice Cream Man (I think VH is winning the battle over *N STINK that her sister plays! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] )

    That will be a great thing to look forward to as a grandparent! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I'll be one of those old guys who still listens to Rock N Roll. Age won't matter to me. I'll be listening to Wolfgang Van Halen's band as well. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Axe, you should envy those old folks...Back in their day, EVERYONE on radio could sing or play...You may not dig big band, but the talent that goes into that stuff is undeniable...

    Secondly, aren't you generalizing just a bit about the senior discounts being the most important things in their lives? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    In fact, in 50 years, we could be reading about the VH grandchildren squabbling with their lead singer dilemmas! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Actually, as statistics go for diabetics, I may not make 80. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img] If I do, I will probably be deaf because even now, at the young and spry age of 32, I don't hear my wife sometimes talking right next to me. She yells at me, saying I'm not paying any attention to her.

    I take a line from the great modern day philospher Homer Simpson and say "honey, it's not that I'm not listening, it's just that I don't care!" [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    That usually goes over like a horse in church.
