Ted Staunton, Jimmy Bowskill and I recently played a gig at the Greenbank Folk Club as The Maple Leaf Champions Jug Band. The woman who introduced us said,"This band really bridges the generation gap. There's a 45 year age span in the group." Guess which end I'm on.
You also know you're getting old when an instrument that you bought new is now advertised as "Vintage"
I also know I'm getting old when people say, "Happy birthday to Jim, who is ___ years young."
Despite this, I don't feel like an old man. I think music keeps me feelin' young.
