Well I tried to put it off as long as I could but this Sunday is my 40th birthday. My secret to feeling young is to hang out with people older than I am.

Another secret is to groove to great timeless music, not try to fit in with "youth culture" whatever the heck that is. We are fortunate for bands like the Brothers and my beloved Mule. I told my wife to make me no party. My celebration will be two nights of the Mule at the Beacon starting two weeks from tonight. If I d did not have family obligations I would have made it three. Someday my kids will be older and I will convince my wife to spend New Year's grooving to the Mule.


Doug

I'm 7 years ahead of you and agree with the idea of hanging around with older people to make myself feel young...soon enough I'm gonna have to spend time among 90 year olds lol

Having recently seen Roy Haynes and Pinetop Perkins, I heartily agree that a healthy dose of music can add years to your life. And your attitude definitely has a lot to do with it.

One advantage of getting older is that it gets harder to remember your age. If you don't act your age, no one else will know...

Happy Birthday - have fun, be safe! You know 40 is the new 30...anyway that's how I've decided to look at things (making 50's the new 40's, etc)

I appreciate that. We'll try to meet up. I'll let you know where my seats are and you can come find me. As far as posting goes, I try to keep in mind that this is a community of people and not write anything that I would not say to someone in person. I am glad I have found these folks because few people in my real life have any interest in, let alone a passion for the music we love.

Doug

Happy Birthday!! 40 was tough but 50 was downright depressing. Now I'm 51 and don't care anymore (about my age, that is). I'll always be young at heart.

Enjoy your special day!

Happy Birthday! Mine was Dec. 10th & I turned 42. I felt pretty good because on the 9th we went to see 62 year old Bob Seger. If our rock n' roll heros are still kicking ass in their 60's we still have plenty of time to do it also. Keep rockin'!

an early HAPPY BIRTHDAY Doug you lil' pup you.

I'll be hittin' the ole double nickel on Christmas Eve or as I prefer to think of it, the 16th anniversary of my 39th birthday. HAAA! So you are in 'older' company my brother.

Age is definitely a case of mind over matter, if you don't mind, then it don't matter.

My daughter keeps waiting for me to grow up & act my age, poor baby, she's got a looooonnnnggg wait.

Hope you're big day is superb & the show's the icing on your cake.

Happy Birthday & have a Merry Christmas,
Carole

Happy 4-0! It's just a number. I was actually relieved to get that one outta the way. Comin' up on the big 5-0 (book 'em, Dano!) myself. Maybe it's wishful thinkin, but I feel like I have a lot more postitive energy than when I was much younger. Just a number!

Happy Birthday, Doughron!

who is that old fart that keeps looking thru the window at me???

oh, it's a mirror...
