Show #11 'I Helped Wipe Out The Sixties'

ALL 70s show!

Sadly, Stooges Guitarist Ron Asheton was found dead one week ago today.
Apparently, it was a heart attack.
He was 60 years old.

To me, it just seems to have symbolized yet another generation creeping up on us.

I doubt that Ron Asheton felt 60 years old.

Last Thursday, David Bowie turned 62! I doubt he feels 62. He certainly does not look it.

On the 21st of April this year, Iggy Pop turns 62 and Robert Smith is finally 50 years old!
And once again, I truly doubt they feel it! (Here is an article from '89 with Robert Smith talking about turning 30)

Maybe, I sound a bit pathetic here, because I am neither 60, 50 nor even 40. But I suppose age has been on the mind as of lately since at the end of this next year I hit ...
The Big 3-0.

I do not feel 30 nor do I believe that I will when I actually do turn 30.
I still feel uncertain about this.
I may actually lose it when the day comes.
Maybe I will simply forget what day it is as I usually do.

Heaven knows really.
What I do know is that we all get older,
but the music is timeless.
