Rock on, or not

Shocking, simply shocking:

LONDON (Reuters) - Rock stars -- notorious for their "crash and burn" lifestyles -- really are more likely than other people to die before reaching old age.

A study of more than 1,000 mainly British and North American artists, spanning the era from Elvis Presley to rapper Eminem, found they were two to three times more likely to suffer a premature death than the general population

I'm surprised it wasn't an Indiana University study.

No duh, Just like on Spinal Tap, the drummers lways seem to be the first to go.

But really who wants to watch a bunch of 60 year old men still shaking their booties like they were 20?

Time for guys like the stones and others of their era to retire
