You hear it from the time that you're a kid: "First thing you know, you're old. You can't believe that a lifetime has slipped away." Yeah. It's fast. Gets faster.
There aren't many benefits, not that I can see. My beloved rock'n'roll was built for kids. I have to say, though, that I always knew that Big Joe Turner knew more than we did. I thought the young John Lee Hooker was good. The old John Lee was phenomenal!
Now I'm hard at work putting away all anger. Wish I could say the same for heartache and heartbreaks and regrets. Maybe I should write a book.
