GREAT "LIVE" OLDER ACTS!

Recommended Posts

What acts have you seen that are still GREAT though they are 60+..?

 

With my dear friend Valorie of Thunder Bay Canada in mind...(Home of Valorie and Paul Schaefer)...I present the GREAT Burton Cummings!

 

(Burton by the way...ALWAYS reminded me of Sir Paul and Sir Eric...

 

all of whom sound beautiful when singing ballads and astonishing singing  "Rockers"..See "American Woman" for further edification... B) )

Though Eric is of course my all-time fave male singer, I have seen Taj Mahal a couple of times.  Last time was at the Blue Note in NYC which is such a great venue with the best music.  Was able to meet Taj who is very cool ideed.

Alright Susie...Let's go a little further back...

 

Lenny Welch was incredible..and like so many UBER-Talents...shoulda been a contender...BUT..S%#T Happens..

 

His live performances are GREAT..and he's SO nice..

 

I think he gave my Beverly goose bumps when we saw him last year..and still...

 

I found it in my heart to forgive him... :)

Well, I can understand why you'd need to forgive Beverly...this guy would give me goosebumps too.

 

Although one of these guys is not within the age range (Darian), wouldn't it be nice to see these guys perform?

 

 
Wayne has already given Eric a waiver if I get goosebumps when he sings.  If Wayne wants to be married to me, he has to.  ;)

Cayenne...Darian is GREAT..I know HE basically put "Smile" together...I kinda think that he makes Brian look good..

 

Susie..Beach Boys 50th..like Raspberries Reunion were SERIOUSLY religious experiences for me!

Now you are talking my musical language. :rolleyes::heartpump:

 

I am just more of a flower child type than a Disney Girl, LOL!  I love puppies, kittens (young and old) and recycling too.

 

Hey, "Seniors Performing Live" could be a band name, right?

Valorie..(Canadianchick..to you folks who don't speak Canadian)...Here's Johnny from his 70th Birthday party that you and I and Beverly and some former friends saw at B.B. Kings in NYC...

 

He was pretty good EY ?...

 

(Again...For those of you who don't speak Canadian...Translation..."He was pretty good...Huh ?)
