Based on the title I thought this thread was about rocking chairs for old folks. Turns out I was wrong. It's about ancient rock stars.
:laugh:
Some of them still do a good job playing the tunes. Nothing like a little nostalgia!

After four decades, Black Sabbath tops U.S. album chart
I heard part of one of the songs and it doesn't sound all that great. It does sound similar to some of their old stuff. Remember "Iron Man" and Paranoid"? It sounded a bit slow and clunky to me, but apparently someone likes it!
:cool2:
Veteran heavy-metal band Black Sabbath landed its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, more than four decades after the rockers debuted their first album in the United States. "13," the 19th studio album from Black Sabbath, sold 155,000 copies in its first week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan, knocking last week's No. 1 album by Queens of the Stone Age off the top spot on the weekly U.S. album chart.

Moves Like Jagger (Explicit)
This is almost like a tribute to Mick Jagger. Old clips of him are thrown in a lot. Mick Jagger is a total OGILTF!!!

tronagirl: I saw that Charlie Manson is getting married and he's eighty. As far as old guys I'd like to fool around with, I think I'd go with Mike Jagger. He's 71 years old and has a net worth estimated at $305M. Manson has a certain undeniable charisma and he's never been short on groupies despite the fact that he's in prison, but as far as I'm concerned, Manson ain't no Jagger.

We have lost so many stars (celebs ect) this year 2016 both young and old. Which makes me want to make a prediction before the year is over.
I predict that Keith Richards will survive 2016.

Quite a few famous musicians have died in 2017. Some I can think of include Glen Campbell, the lead singer of Linkin Park, Chris Cornell, Chuck Berry, Al Jarreau, Walter Becker from Steeley Dan, and Gregg Allman. There were a bunch who kicked the bucket in 2016 too. None of this should be at all surprising since wave after wave of baby-boomers are going on to meet their maker and since most of the people on the list would qualify as baby-boomers.

You can add Tom Petty to the list. Can't say I was a big fan, but he did have a few cool songs. Very simple songs, but nice.
