    This band has been around 30 or 40 years but I just became aware of them. They are still rocking and an example that you can age and keep on going without embarrassing yourself. Saw them on a late night show this past year. Drummer is producer Butch Vig, produced albums by Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins.

    I think this is a good way to make a music video, play it live with ear monitors and then dump the scratch take in favor of the studio version; at least that's how I would guess they're doing it.

    I like this group, always have. Just well-crafted pop.

    They had some decent songs I guess. I saw them open up for Smashing Pumpkins in 1997. They weren’t bad, just kind of bland and boring. Too electronic for my taste.

    Rocking hard gracefully into old age- bands: Cannibal corpse. Or exodus.
    Maybe not deicide though.
    Exodus is about to release a new album i think.

    I've long liked Garbage. It's hard to believe they've been around since 1992.
    (that makes me feel really old ;) )

    Awesome - thay have always had a unique sound! The story of how Shirley came to be in the band is well worth researching, as it was very nearly a disastrous relationship.
    Here's an early one, and a very popular track

    I saw a live concert of them on the tube. I think it was filmed at a small venue in Denver, I could be wrong, but I was impressed.

    We saw them a couple of years ago here in DC and they were absolutely fantastic. I can’t think of many performers I’ve seen who had such an immediate connection to the audience as Shirley Manson. She’s amazing.

    I don't know why some people give other people such control over their lives. I don't need someone else's permission to live my life the way I want. If you don't like the way I'm rocking, or if you think I'm not aging gracefully, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    Before C—19 I was trying to foster a group of players—including some kids with very little recording, stage or performing experience—by linking them up with people on the older and/or more experienced players in our social circle, who would stylistically be able to play the same type of music…the youngest was about 14, the oldest of us was 69.

    Most of the kids were respectful and thirsty for knowledge, and were lapping up at the chance to shine in their own way.

    I was in the kitchen when I overheard a couple of the kids saying, “Man, he really rocks for an old guy! I didn’t think he even knew these songs, much less play them! I hope I’m still rocking like that when I get old!”

    I thought they were talking about my drummer (then 69 years old, now almost 71)…but then they mentioned “his killer orange Strat and that hot rod Telecaster…”
    I realized they were talking about me.

    I lamented this to my drummer…he said, “Welcome to how I felt 20 years ago.”
