    Question Peter Pans...?

    Like my other new thread says, I've just seen Alice Cooper in concert at Leeds. Mind-blowing showmanship,great rock/rock and roll music and hugely entertaining. Having seen John Fogerty a year ago, he of Creedence Clearwater Revival, still performing at about 75, it is amazing that the rock-star lifestyle has allowed so many to continue rocking away into their very senior years.
    My list:
    John Fogerty
    Mick Jagger/Keith Richards
    Chuck Berry RIP but was still performing concerts in his nineties!
    Rod Stewart
    Cliff Richard! Yes, yes, I know! ; but he is still performing aged 80 this year..!
    Tina Turner
    Cher 73 this year and perfoming in the UK for the first time this eek it said on the Beeb today. [= 30th October]
    How old is Clapton now? Getting on a bit for sure?

    So who have I forgotten and how the hell have they survived?

    Over to you!

    I'm just surprised that he's managed to retain his singing voice.

    For me the term Peter Pan has other connotations but some of the Rolling Stones fit for that as well.

    Agreed....(Diamonds and Rust is in the car cd)....but in fairness her voice has changed a lot (as it would....)

    And except for the fact she is (I think) in a coma...Joni Mitchell

    Yes...I was in Newcastle Emlyn a few weeks ago and saw a flyer advertising an evening with R T....after going googly eyed and trying to persuade SWMBO'd to come (NO!) I realised it was a year ago.....(fairly typical round here..if its something you want to go to....its already happened and no-one told you).
