    Some people try to get their 15 minutes of fame anyway they can.

    What's the fuss? People die. Musical styles and instruments go in and out of favor. Tell me about the big bands again, Grandpa.

    Enjoy every sandwich.

    Sorry, I don't see any issues with this story. Other than it's a click bate / somewhat sensational read. The author is stating the facts in that classic rock stars are now in their 70s and will start dyeing off based on average life expectancy.

    When the stories of The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan are told, their insistence on touring well into “old age” should have their own chapters.

    Decades ago Keith told an interviewer that their models were the blues musicians that they idolized . That you could go see Muddy or Pinetop or Buddy or many others basically until they die was not lost on the boys.

    You’re a musician ? You play your music for people . Set the equipment up , plug in , play.

    Instead of people ragging on them for not sounding like they did at 25 , they should be celebrated for doing what they, and millions of their fans, love.

    It just seemed like a downer article, as a guy in his 30s though, it is really sad to me that there isnt a rock scene like the boomers had or even like I had when I was younger. :(

    You know...
    ...this. Thanks, P Thought.

    I do volunteer work at a local hospital and very often in Palliative Care. There's a campaign on now to fund raise for a new hospice. The poster reads "100% of all Canadians will die." Couldn't be more on the mark.

    "oozing" is too strong

    I appreciated the relative size of the population and its consequences a long time ago, too

    the only thing that frustrates me is the television

    IMO, the actual point of the article should have been to recognize the end of a pretty significant era in American music. The explosion of great music and its pervasive influence on the culture during the 60s and 70s was unprecedented. The innovators of that era are dying off, naturally, and deserve some recognition, but for what they did in life, not because they're dying.

    For Pete's sake, I have 3 teenage kids and all three of them are constantly loading up their playlists with new music that is constantly buffeting them from multiple sources, some social and some not, much of it online (so what); much of the music is very creative; some is of high musical quality; its a mix of styles and influences from the 1950s forward to today; some of it has guitars and some does not (nothing new here); much of it plays from the heart; production values tend to be high even though it is typically created using readily available mass market tools; their favorite artists come into town and they go see them at venues of all sizes; they talk with the friends about music and share it and enjoy it in very personal ways; they like to play the music loud and it sounds good that way.

    TAKE HEART ROCK MUSIC IS NOT DEAD even though those who were famous at a particular time within a particular generation (ours) are passing every day and getting collectively closer to passing.

    My kids no nothing of the long list of rockers that are about to reach their final years and don't care at all; yet their lives are no less rich in music than mine. And actually although I love the music from that passing generation neither I nor anyone I care about knows any of them personally and it won't affect my life at all when they die. Nothing will change for me except I'll get getting older too. I'll keep listening to their music as long as my ears can hear it.

    Thoughts?

    The article is correct, of course, yet it seems like low hanging fruit.

    It's good news for TDPRI because RIP threads are really popular here.

    There are quite a few here that have a tremendous fear of their own mortality, as evidenced by their posts.

    The quality of so-called journalism is in serious decline, if it's not an easy piece such as this, it
    is articles full of misspellings, poor grammar and syntax.

    I remember when Louis Armstrong died; I was just out of high school. What a loss. There won't be another Satchmo.

    Each generation will have it's idols and heroes ... And they will all pass ... a little Cab Calloway or Glen Miller anybody ??? Maybe Enrico Caruso or Jenny Lind or Sophie Tucker ...

    Well, at least rock and roll has apparently outlived journalism.
