    All of the sudden, 71 seems very young. Thanks for the tunes.

    Expect more. I believe the expected life span of men is currently ~80, depending on the western country you are talking about. So far, many have passed at about 70. I guess some were victims of a difficult lifestyle, particularly early in their lives.

    Or the Country-Western, for that matter.

    I have seen J. Geils band live more times than any other act. I think it was 5 or 6 times. They were touring constantly in the 70s.
