Age is just a number

Recommended Posts

If you look at the birthdays at the bottom of the forums section there are loads of folk well into there 60s. Are they still active at events etc I'm not sure....I would say your still just a slip of a lad and good luck to to you if your still enjoying it. I have to say that at events/niters there seems lots who are well into there 60,s even 70s, but I know the scene does take it out of you so there possibly a lot younger!!! Kind regards....Rob

I'll be 71 next month. m Most of my close family lives well into their 90s or early 100s.  So, I expect to be around a while.  I'm still working, and I live each year at regular intervals in 5 countries on 2 continents.  So, I move regularly.  I still lift free weights almost every day, still run, swim ski, and played ice hockey until I was 50.  Sadly,  I don't buy records anymore (probably because I will live to be over 100, and will need the money.  :lol:  Can't attend all-nighters anymore (mostly because I'm seldom in The UK.  But, sometimes I pull an all-nighter drawing cartoons for a heavy deadline.  :pirate:

I’m 68 and still ‘’Living for the  Weekend’’

I’m doing as many events now than when I was 17.

Am I the oldest on Soul Source?

Brian Rae - still on it at 74, always good for a chat about the old days - who played what record etc etc, I remember years ago I cornered Russ W and Brian ran out of questions of who played what at the Casino , in the early days 73 / 74 - someone really needs to interview all theses jocks get the history written down - legends

Used to sell loads of 45s to Martin in the early seventies. They are probably all topping up his pension pot now!:D

We both 68.... and we see lots of folk out who look our age. Record collecting, Dj'ing occasionally and dancing keeps us going! 

Fred, the oldest teenager in Scunny .... but then, the only good thing to come out of Scunny ... is the road to Donny ....
