Think He's Changed His Mind?

Roger Daltrey, the guy who sang the Pete Townsend-penned words "Hope I die before I get old," in the classic "My Generation," turned 65 today.

Oh my gosh, I feel bad that I thought he had already died...

Bubs said...

Sure he has. Unless he now defines "old" as more than 90.

I think he just tells people he's 65 years young.

I think that they all turned "old" decades ago. Now all he has to do is raise the bar.

I've not heard him in ages. I wonder if he sounds any good anymore?

I used to love Fish singing, but I understand that he blew out his voice earlier in the decade.

Remember when you thought people over 30 should get out of the way and let young people change things?

he's only one of two left in that group though. I suppose we all knew Keith would be the first to go, but I was surprised when John Entwhistle died.

Good thing youthful hopes are not always realized!

I contracted my college roomie to gun me down on my 65th birthday. I vowed to return fire. It'll be fun to see what happens.

And remember when the Stones said never trust anyone over 30?

Now the lyric 'people try to put us down' has a different meaning, poor old thing.
