"What are you saving it for?" is a good question at this point in his 
career, but the other way to look at it is: You're rich, you're famous, you 
have created one of the greatest legacies of songs and live performances in 
the history of music; so if it's no fun, why do it? There would be only two 
reasons I can think of : 1) because Roger wants to and you feel a 
responsibility as a friend and "brother", or 2) for us fans (but the Super 
Bowl bruhaha proves that all we ever do is complain anyway).

Now I don't mean to be a dick his age wtf right?? What are you 
saving it for?? He is a year older than my mom and she is fubared compared 
to him. I get tired of him bitching about stuff like this.He never dug 
ditches,cut pipe ,blew a disc in his back playing a les paul. Sounds like 
his new musical doesn't work and he is pussin out again! Sorry but I call 
them like I see "em! Times like this I feel sorry for Roger,really do.
