. . . when one of your students tells you "I just found out Paul McCartney was in a band called Wings."

Me: "Yeah, before that he was in the Beatles."

Student: "Who are they?"

When you talk about a band's new album.

And then you realize it came out 10 years ago.

The really bad part is there is no longer a local music scene.

It's DJ's and dance clubs.
To quote the late Frank Zappa ,DJ's are to musicians as fire hydrants are to dogs.

Oh dayum... that reminds me from a few years back. One of the radio stations became 'Oldies'. They were playing BTO and Kansas.

Oldies??? Then what are the songs and groups I considered oldies? Moldy Oldies? Neanderthal? Jeez

One of your local markets is playing The Eagles and Hotel California as background music for a predominantly 70+ year old demographic that shops there.

When the cute 20-something brunette waitress looks at you with sadness & pity and asks "Are you okay?" after a sip of martini goes down the wrong pipe.

Growing old is unavoidable, acting "old" is a choice.

I'm older now than when I started typing this post. More experience! Yay!

When it's Friday night and instead of saying "Hey! We get to party!" it's more like "Hey! I don't have to get up in the morning!".

... You can no longer belt out "Don't Stop Believing" right along with Steve Perry on the radio. And can't hit the high notes on GFR's "Closer to Home" anymore. And Roy Orbison no longer gets your accompaniment. And you can't do the Timothy B. Schmidt part in the Eagles' harmony. And the list goes on.

But on the flip side of that coin, you can now sing along with War on "Low Rider." And you can turn your grandkids on to Bachman Turner Overdrive.
