@Abelardlindsey people are getting older. Not sure your age and it's none of my business, but when you get into your 60's and older the visual aging effect accelerates for many.

Case in point, I took my sons to see George Thorogood and the Destroyers last week at Pine Knob. While he is one of my favorite performers, the bands appeal does NOT extend to a younger crowd (my sons excluded, George is my oldest son's guitar hero and led him to appreciate John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, etc. Lot's of reasons for that, not the least of which most of the music is only 1 or 2 chords, lol) Anyway, the crowd had an average age of around 55. In that group, probably 80% looked as if they were closer to 70 due to morbid obesity or a rough life or both. I know, through casual conversation that they were not that old, they just looked that way. Maybe 5% were of normal weight and they all looked younger or close to the stated 55 YO ave. you go to hell faster when you reach a certain age, or so it seems.
