    I'm a grandpa at 52 and our bass player is 60. As long as one person will listen, I'm going to keep playing. All this talk of Dad bands, etc....... Doesn't phase me one bit.

      I'd listen to the band Grandpa's Guitar if they rocked.

    Im a grandpa of 2 im 60 if a 60 Yr Old was on stage when I was 25 I would not have had the maturity to listen and would have likely left too. Paybacks a mother!

      Id be honored. It was a true statement btw. My pops played professionally for many years before I was born the hung it up when I was born, partially to be home with me, partially to get sober. He picked it (music, not booze) back up when I went to collegein 95. I just saw his band last weekend and it hit me, they do it right! Its older blues & soul but done so well, fromthe musicianship to the lights, sound, banter, the clothes they wear, eeverything screamed pro and the dancefloor definitely reflected it! Very cool to have an example like that in my family, I gotta up my game!

      Here's a pretty hot version of Don Covay's "Critical List" that they performed on a local TV show. That's my Dad on Guitar and my Uncle on Keys...

      Here's one with my Uncle singing one of their originals:

        Does anybody know how to get YouTube vids to pop up in posts (not just links)?
