It's wild, I'm 44, most of my rock  heroes are in their 50's or 60's.  There's not a whole lot of hope coming up, though there are rock acts that will at least last through my lifetime.   

That sounded depressing!

What's also depressing is that rock n roll will likely fade into a generational "era" niche much like the Big Bands or Do Wop have.

To be replaced with the insufferable, marginally talented rubbish of today's
sampling-based,
hip hop,
nasal voiced,
whoop-whoop,
over produced,
mindless drivel.
BS

As Dennis Miller used to say, "but that's just my opinion. I could be wrong."

In this month's issue of Premier Guitar Peter Frampton is featured.

Why? He's 66 yrs old. . . and has been diagnosed with a degenerative muscular disease which will eventually prevent him from being able to play.

He's on a farewell tour at he moment and judging by the clip, he's still sounding good:
