Since it looks like Dickey has retired what other groups or rockers should retire also? To me Aerosmith, Santana and Ted Nugent should sit back and enjoy life.

If there is an audience that wants to pay to see a performer perform then god bless...when the audience is gone they will stop performing otherwise why should somebody who loves playing music and makes a living doing it retire if he or she wants to continue to perform?

I agree, unless they are clearly past their prime and embarrassing themselves.

i agree about aerosmith. these guys are a trainwreck now. i dont think they've completed a tour since 2000 with out at least a few gigs being cancelled.

ted nugent still semms to bring it though. his lyrics may be silly/juvenille but his singing and playing are still up to snuff.

i'd like to add
ozzy
motley crue

to the list of artists who need to retire

Did the Beach Boys finally hang it up? I think they should have about 30 years ago.

just like athletes who play past their prime,musicians will do the same and it is their choice....if people do not want to go see them perform it will become apparent very soon and very obviously...if you were a musician who was still able to fill arenas and make a fortune doing what you love to do would you voluntarily stop doing it?i highly doubt it....the same could be said for actors and actresses who are on their 4th face lift and 12th new hair piece!

I'm old/young enough to remember seeing Willie Mays in his final days as a Met.

That's about all I have to say about that

I'd suggest that those on this board with nothing better to do than decide when somebody else should retire should strongly consider retirement for themselves.

Hi Bill, how's the view from up there?


I'll let you know when I get there...

...in the mean time, it appears there's several folks on this thread that are more than willing to give out their professional perspective on the "view". Maybe they can give you a dose too. I'm sure it's worth what they're charging.

I was fishing over behind the stage area at Cypress Gardens two years ago and the Beach Boys were playing "Wouldn't it be Nice?" I thought to myself wouldn't it be nice if I caught a bass and a few minutes later I had one around 3lb. <")))><

it is painful to say, since I have a huge Dylan collection, everything I can pre 1990, especially pre 1980.... but poor Bobby has a frogvoice condition that shows continual worsening, sorry Bob, I love you man.....

Bob Weir, and again I am a huge 70-73 Dead fan and pride myself on seeing them back then and ponytailed Bobby was great, but man, he looks like Chester the Molesters brother in his frumpy clothes and mustache that would fit four Bobbies, but the real problem is I think he is hanging around Dylans voice clinic, and he now is of the Darvon School of Guitar Playing.... sorry Bobby....

Billy Joel, Elton John, Paul McCartney.... do I need to explain these ones?

Anyone that is over 55 and plays heavy metal. Heavy metal is fine, Geezer Metal is comedy......

it's not age that means one should reteire, it is how fortunate ones surviving it, how they carry themselves, and surviving talent,

Oh yeah, Ron Wood. He looks like an old woman now, on that basis, outta here.....

I don't think anyone should retire if they are still drawing an audience and still want to do it. Retirement is up to the individual.

The 'Say Hey Kid' was playing center field for the Mets in the first game I ever went to with my grandfather as an eight year old in 1972.

Me too, Rainy!

I sure hope Santana does not retire. I've never been to see the others..
Just don't go see them if you think they should retire! BB King is 80+ years old.
Call him up and tell him to retire! LOL!!!

I think it's nice to leave the stage with dignity, if you can. But that's something folks have to work out for themselves.

But I will make this observation: The blues can be sung authentically no matter how old you get to be--but rock and roll is a different story, at least IMO.

I am a big Santana fan but it is time for some people to retire. One person said it best they are like pro ball players who just can not give it up and go out looking bad. There is nothing wrong with retiring. These guys can still play if they want on special occasions but a tour for a 68 year old guy is tough. Some of these guys have been at it since the early days of the Avalon Ballroom and before. 50 years performing is enough. I agree that blues players can go on but the rockers no. If you want to use a term from the rappers, Keep it real. Santana best days were before 1975 the dead the same but the people who want to see them will go and listen to an ok concert and say it was great but the truth is it was bad.
I will add to my list; Dylan, Beach Boys, Joe Walsh and the Eagles just enjoy being at the top but don't keep trying to hang on.

I saw Santana a couple of months ago here in Las Vegas, and if anything they could retire a number of other bands. They brought it BIG TIME, great, great show.

I am not sure what the author was thinking about these guys
