Hound Dog Taylor didn't record untill he was 56
WOW. wow wow.
inspiration--raw power--does not fade with age. you might break a hip or kill your knees like james brown, but spirit is spirit. and a lot of rock and rollers have that spirit.
you know, this might sound weird, but it is really striking to watch an older (40s, 50s, 60s) man or woman push it out with swagger and sweat and sexual presence. it's commanding.
