My drummer is a grandpa. My kids are 26 and 25 but no grandkids yet, thankfully!

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!
Sounds like my kind of band . . . . links to video, please!

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:
Here's a cut from a live show at a sit down place...

I wonder how long it'll take for the younger guys, musicians and customers, to reallize that all the guys in original classic rock bands are now Grandpa age. They have to just stop looking at their age and focus on the music.
People have to understand that Grandpa age guys now, due to whatever all, are in much better physical and mental shape than the Grandpa guys of earlier eras. Get over it, get used to it or they will pass you by!
ha ha ha but true...

my grandson is almost 3 and is remarkably capable on drums. My drummer has been teaching him. Works the pedals and hi-hat like a pro. Meanwhile grandpa's been hitting 9 or more gigs a month lately. Rock on.
