I see your point but how is this different than the coming death of every living thing on earth?

Other living things usually have replacements. The rock legends are unique. Like Elvis, no replacing the king.

I have seen four of those on the list in the last year (three of them in the last month) and they all seem to be doing great...Stewart, Harry, Browne and Ferry. I hope I have that energy at that age.

In 30 years, they will be playing Snoop Dogg in retirement homes to sooth the residents and the attendants will be giving sponge baths to fading, sagging tramp stamps and tribal tattoos.

Springsteen, at almost 70, is amazing. Unlike other 'heritage acts' who take 22 songs out on the road and go thru the motions (looking at you Mick and Bono) He is in unbelievabley good nick, looks fitter than most 40yos, he does unbroken 3.5 hour shows and makes it up as he goes along. And crowd surfs across stadiums. Which is what he should be doing a 40 year catalogue. (Keef!)

Saw the Stones a couple months back on the No Filter Tour. Mick looks good for his age and Keith looks like... well... Keith. But they still can rock it!

Sad that legends like these are coming to the ends of their roads. There is nothing even remotely approaching their talent coming down the road - a lot of repetitive hip-hop garbage that incorporates a loud synth-bass line and some mumbling. I guess that means Iím getting old (Damn kids! That crap ainít music! Get off my lawn!) rofl! Every generation thinks the next generationís music sucks - only in this case it really does. These guys are / were artists and had actual skills to produce music. The new "artists" produce forgettable noise.

I always thought "Keith Richards and the Cockroaches" would be a pretty excellent band name.
