    I was just listening to the album last night. So good. Gotta be honest that song drags on a bit for me but I do like it. :D

    Often wondered this. Complex subject but I’ve always found music to be a great leveler. Played in a band once with a 14 year old drummer and a sixty two year old sax player. Never seemed to be mentioned my anyone, we were just musicians in a band. One thing I have found is that when any local musicians around my age (mid sixties), get together to jam or for a one off gig, they always do stuff from there teenage years, which means Deep Purple and other rock stuff. I didn’t particularly like that stuff then and was playing in a functions band doing pop and standards. These days ads placed for drummers, guitarist etc looking to join or form a band are often 60 somethings looking to play rock. I’ve had a heck of a job to get a drummer who can handle the broad span of stuff my current functions band does.

    Can’t go wrong with a three chord strumming folk ditty. I just don’t get along with folk music and groups, nothing against it, just wish they wouldn’t do it. It always seems to be four or more bearded blokes in Aran jumpers sing 15 verses about a drowning sailor through their noses. Sorry, side tracked, what was the question?

    A band I was in back in the 70's played mostly rock.. Every once in a while we'd toss in something like "Help me make it through the night" for a slow one, because it was a guaranteed couples song.

    As they say, good is good.

    The only person who can determine what type of music is "proper" for you, is you.
    Forget age, forget what anyone expects.
    Do your thing, your way, and enjoy the talent that allows you to do what you do.

    Unless you play banjo. In that case, may God have mercy on your soul !!
