The new chorus of the set's finale song:

"Get the hell off my lawn!

Get the hell off my lawn!

Get the hell of my laaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwn!

 

It features a long, psychedelic interlude with percussion, theramin, and wet, hacking cough.

Is there an age at which point a musician is supposed to give up performing?

 

Jimmy Page is a little less than five years older than I am.

John Paul Jones is three years older than I am.

Robert Plant is the same age as I am.

John Bonham, if he were alive, would also be my age.

 

On the other hand, the "kid" in the group, Jason Bonham is 41.

 

I'm getting tired of the "too old" jokes.

Hoo, boy. I'm having a bad weekend; last night I pissed off my new keyboardist, today I've irritated Jeremy.

 

Jeremy, buddy, it's a joke. I'm with ya, I intend to play out until they pry my instruments from my cold, dead, stiff fingers.

 

But, c'mon - rock 'n roll started out, and remains to a great degree, a product of youth culture. We baby-boomers are changing that paradigm, and nobody's suggesting that LZ shouldn't tour. BUT there's a certain perceived incongruity there that we have an impulse to make a giggle or two out of.

Yeah, let's be clear about something. It's fun to make jokes. It's sort of sobering, I guess, to see this group we associate with our own youth, & who personified youthful recklessness, now "elder statesmen." So we joke around.

 

But I for one am thrilled that they are still doing it. I would love to see them perform, at any age. They were & are the greatest rock band of all time, in my opinion. We won't always have them, and that's too bad.

 

And I think that some of these "older" bands are playing their best ever. Pink Floyd's Pulse video was outstanding, and the playing was incredible. Yes have always been an amazing band, and they're better & tighter than ever. Simon & Garfunkel's Old Friends video blew me away; I never thought it would be possible to improve on Simon & Garfunkel, yet they were so much more poised, confident, & in control, & rocked really hard. And so on.

 

Bands are getting older. And most of them are getting better. I didn't get to see Led Zeppelin's reunion, sadly, but I'd bet it was the best they've ever played.

Good on 'em, say I, though I was never a big Zep fan (or Floyd, either).

 

My vote for World's Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band goes to the Rolling Stones, who have pretty much kept on keepin' on over the years. In fact, I think the "old rocker" jokes started with references to their "Steel Wheelchair Tour."

The Stones still have it. (Even though it's been a long time since they wrote a good new song).

 

From what I saw and heard, the Police and Cream reunions did not produce any great music.

 

When a band stops playing together because the band members no longer like each other, there shouldn't be a reunion tour.
