I turned 40 last week. mellow.gif

This Sunday at church, our regular acoustic guitar player (probably in his 50's) was out, so they brought in someone new. New guy was probably in his early 20's.

After church service was over and we went to pick up our guitars, the new young guitar player was immediately surrounded by cute young girls that wanted to talk to him.

That never happens to us older guys. It anything, it's out wives telling us to hurry up and get our gear packed.

It's the same in my band. All the guys are older than 50 or even 60, and after and during a gig the young girls are just looking at the young rhythm guitar player...luckily that's me ph34r.gif
Seriously, I also think you're never too old to be a rock star...but I think you can't really expect 20 year old girls to admire a 40 year old rock star...except your name is Jon Bon Jovi. Try to impress girls your age or a little younger than you are, it works well for my bandmates.

Great story indeed, but sorry for you.
But there are so many 'old' rock stars, for example Maiden.
They just rock your socks off! I have no doubt you can still be a rock star too!

Wow! How could You guessed that Keil, R U a mind-reader or something??? laugh.gif
In fact I have a story from the last gig we did, a lady at age 65+ attended my former girlfriend and said:
"Who's that little ugly man over there playing ??? " She answered: "-Thats the father of my children!"
The lady then got embaressed and were apologizing to me the rest of the evening. But what really hurted me
was that she seems to be turned on by the bass-player instead. (see photo) I suddenly realized that I'm not able
to get any woman 10 years younger than myself, not even TWENTY years OLDER!!!! So what to do? I dont gonna give this up,
I will be a greater star than Jagger & Richards together, and then I will have girls twice as young as theirs as well as twice as
good-looking !!!!!

EDIT: Uploaded the photo in the right format....

Btw. here is how I looked on stage..... (I didnt know that I look THAT wild, Fred Flinta and I are look-a-likes!!! )

This is very true. Often two very different roads lead to each of them. There are many great studio musicians/artists etc out there that are not that famous and yet play/create awesome music.

I don't know how to respond to this without putting my foot in my mouth so I'll just smile smile.gif laugh.gif

But I will say I don't think age matters when it comes to "Rock" As Fre pointed out Maiden is still going strong, Mick and company can still put on a great show even though they are social security age. It's all a state of mind and rock is forever young!!!

I have to slightly disagree somewhat, I am the same age as the replacement guitarist in this story - And I never got any girl because I could play guitar! laugh.gif

I think it depends what you play, learning Dream Theater and Necrophagist riffs got me no women in high school or in the years after for that matter! laugh.gif
