Live and dangerous. by swillinbillyflynn

Live and dangerous.

Obviously not my photo. But I really love this shot that a friend took of me performing.

Someone asked me the other day, "why are you still gigging at 64. Surely you should have grown out of all that by now?" But, if you are a musician, it's who you are, not just something you do. Most people don't know about the adrenaline/dopamine/endorphin rush that you get out of playing for an appreciative audience,

Music is literally my drug and I'm an addict.

I hope to be still gigging when I'm 94, even if I am so old and frail that I can only just manage to hit my Zimmer frame with a stick. :)
They wouldn't ask Mick Jagger or Paul McCartney (although the latter should give up he now sings like Pierce Brosnan!) would they!?? Hope you gave them what for with a cutlass. It is a fab photo, thanks for sharing and keep on gigging ( and giggling) Mr F

64 is not too old to be doing anything you love. Great shot.

Keep on keeping on - you're a lucky man!

I love music but I can't play an instrument... and believe me I've tried. My daughter is a talented musician and her niece - my elder grand-daughter is a budding rock guitarist... she's just bought herself a Les Paul guitar.

Keep on doing what is in your soul Billy - we are what we are, age doesn't change what makes us happy!
