Thread Name: What counts as young?
Subject: RE: What counts as young?
Well, I'm almost 60, and I'm still not used to being referred to as an adult. Still, I look like somebody who would sing folk songs.
But does Johnny Rotten look like a person who would do punk rock? Does Mick Jagger look like a rock 'n' roll singer? Would they sing that stuff nowadays if they weren't getting paid well to do it?
Mick and Johnny should let their hair go grey (or bald), grow a beard and a paunch and get reading glasses, buy acoustic guitars, and sing "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"
Can you picture Mick and Johnny doing a duet on "Kumbayah"?
