And now I have just got used to it. Mind you some people must not look at user names or email addresses because people still got a shock.

My current band do not mind playing with a wrinkly, they are in their 20's and a good bunch of lads. Dont do their image much harm, people do not normally notice who is behind the drums. Often after a gig whilst mingling people are realy surprised when I say I am the drummer, they had not even noticed it was a woman, never mind an older one.
Awesome! How long have you been playing for?
