We had an discussion on the topic a while ago, so I found an answer to the question stated in the post.
Look at this guy (guy's). Robin is 62 now, this footage is from his 60'th birthday at Rockpalast in 2008.
Btw. he is one of the most under-rated guitar players ever, and is a must in the history of the electric guitar.
Enjoy!!!!

You're never too old rocking, I saw a wonderful video on youtube a few weeks ago of an older man (prob around 60 aswell), with white hair and a nice bearbelly playing trash-metal kings Annihilators Alison Hell. And he played it very well! I know i'm gonna be rocking out when i'm that old, for sure. Rocking is ageless

Thanks Staffay Trower is an awesome player smile.gif and 'Bridge of sighs' is probably one of 'desert island discs'. If I remember correctly he was considered to be up there with Clapton and Beck back in the late 60s/early 70s by blues and rock guitar players but was largely ignored by the general public.

Yeah, in fact I listened to him in the 70'ths, dont remember which albums I had though. Also there was Rory Gallagher, but he was more sort of a standard rock player to me, what I can remember. And thats true, RT never sold any records and were quite un-known to the general public back then.
