Ha. I love this one. :)

Every line of Sande's old rockers article was funny. He is wondering why
they don't quit and why they charge so much. They don't quit because they
can't, and they charge so much because they can. Not everybody at age 65 or
70 can jump around onstage and not get tangled up in all those amp wires.
Watching that feat alone is worth $194.
The real trick of it all goes back to the '60s when everyone interested in
rock dropped LSD. Unbeknownst to science then and now, LSD has the power to
stop mental growth. If you were 19 when you took it, you remain 19. These
old rockers don't know they're old. It's not money; it's mental. The body
withers, but the outlook on life remains the same.
Someday we may see them all in a lovely gated community doing a documentary
on the good old days, but don't wait for it. That horrendous drug will not
let us "rest in peace."
Great article! Now go home and do something nice for your old folks.
