    Apart from that, I never expected that so many bands or single artists that started in the sixties or seventies still perform on stage. In may Paul McCartney will give a concert in Holland.
    If someone would have said In the seventies that he still will be performing in the year 2020 I would have avoided that person from that moment on, just in case.

    No, but sometimes the genetic stars align.

    The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says he is disappointed as he is no longer a part of the list of celebrities most likely to die.
    The *72-year-old rocker took to Twitter to express his feelings.
    (now *76-year-old rocker)


    "I was number one on the who-is-most-likely-to-die list for 10 years. I was really disappointed when I fell of the list!

    I don't think so - leather is organic.

    I think it has something to do with a crossroads at midnight.

    In the 70's I still thought that 2001 A Space Odyssey was within the realm of possibility and I doubted I'd see 2020. I don't know if that was more fear of my personal excesses or fear of fools in power. Will I see 2030? I've gotten my excesses pretty much under control but there are still plenty of fools out there. Different ones from back then, but fools nonetheless.

    The list of things I didn't foresee in the '70s definitely falls under TL;DR.

    *goes back to horrible retail job*

    People have been predicting the end of the world since the beginning of it and they have always been wrong. They are still predicting “the end is near” and they are still wrong and will continue to be so.

    Forget Keith, I'm still waiting for my flying car. They promised.
