In case you didn’t realise – there’s a You in the word Youth.

That means if you’re willing, you can still be a honourary youth even when you’re no longer one (age-wise). But in terms of age, you’re now hopefully wise.

Just ask Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Alice Cooper and Rick Astley and a host of others. That’s why these rock heroes have my respect. They set examples of growing older but never old. They’re still writing songs, coming up with new albums, still collaborating with new artist (new ideas) and performing on stage.

Time to make new friends with the younger tribe. Be young yourself. Avoid tired and tiresome grouches.

Start a hobby that brings fun and keep yourself young and maintenance-free. My Elvis buddies are doing just that (above image).

As for me, I’ll probably shoot rock stars till my last breath of mortal life.

My Hobby keeps me Young!
