I guess people do not know the word "retire" and know when it is time to get out of the business and let the younger talent come in.

Sorry but the younger talent sucks.Just compare Sir Paul to Jusin Beiber for example.No need for Paul to retire when he is still able to do what he loves and still do it well.

I would like to have many Pauls at their twenties. Anyway, should we have more respect to people like Paul, Mick(Jagger), etc? They are not trying to steal fame and glory from the younger ones. They are doing this just to be alive and get an applause from the guys of their generation. And many younger ones...Tell me...What things do you find wrong? They satisfy a large number of people. An untalented 20 year old would not do that. But, Paul, Mick, Neil Young etc, would do it despite their wrinkled body.

Hail to the older rockers because todays music sucks big time.No one comes close to the Beatles or Stones today.No super groups out there we need more groups like Led Zepplin and Bad Company instead of the wimpy crap that's being played now.

I say let them play as long as they still can. The new bands are wimpy and not much talent. The Beach boys and BB King still have what it takes so does Sir Paul.

Why some people don't understand that it's not the "old" men that don't let the young ones to shine. It's their talent that is eternal, immortal, enduring, everlasting...Don't you agree that the new Beach Boys song has something "else" that overshadows other shit age, shit hop, shit rock, shit pop, shit dance hits? Don't let me be misunderstood:There are not bad styles or bad genres of music. Only good songs and bad songs.

Young people are intellectually and emotionally stagnant because they've never read Proverbs. Dope has a lot to do with it, too.
