Still Rocking After All These Years

It was announced this month that Paul Simon & Sting, two of rock & roll’s most loved artists, are about to embark on a concert tour of North America. Yes, at age 72 and 62, respectively, these superstars will collaborate on one of the most highly anticipated concert events of 2014.

Of the nearly 200 performers that have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, including Paul Simon and Sting, many are still rocking into their 60s and 70s. Here are some examples:

• Bob Dylan, at 72, performed his ‘Never Ending Tour’ as recently as April 19, 2012.

• Joni Mitchell surprised the City of Toronto on her 70th birthday with a live performance in June of 2013.

• Jeff Beck (69) is still performing live, teaming up with Brian Wilson, 72, in 2013.

• Crosby (73), Stills (68) & Nash (68) toured the US and Europe in 2013.

• James Taylor (65) honored America and the fans of Boston by singing the National Anthem at Game 2 of the World Series on October 24, 2013.

• Still booking live performances, The Beach Boys will perform on December 13, 2013 in New Brunswick, NJ. They celebrated their 50th

• Randy Newman (69) spent 2013 not only in Hollywood, Texas, Washington DC & Kentucky, but he also performed in Belgium.

• And, what can one say about the two Sirs? Sir Elton John (66) performed in Brazil, March 2013. And, Sir Paul McCartney (71) was greeted in November 2013 by thousands in Osaka, Japan as he returned there for the first time in 11 years.

• Mick Jagger (69), Keith Richards (69) and The Rolling Stones also continue to thrill audiences. As does Aerosmith, The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.

And don’t be surprised to hear about current and upcoming tour and show dates announced for Bob Seger (68), The Who, Neil Young (68), Rod Stewart (68), Van Morrison (68), Carlos Santana (66), The Allman Brothers Band, Bonnie Rait (64), Bruce Springsteen (64), Billy Joel (64), and Stevie Wonder (63).

Take a look at this exclusive list of 60 & 70 year old rock & roll hall of famers, taking special note of their ages. An asterisk by their name indicates that they are still performing which is the case for the majority of these hard-working, talented, dedicated performers.

What’s truly amazing is how great these iconic rockers still sound today. If you close your eyes, you’ll think you’ve traveled back in time. If there is a lesson to be learned here it’s that age does not matter when it comes to having the energy to express one’s passion. And, of course, that… “Rock & Roll will NEVER die!

And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
