Subject: RE: Oldtimers who just keep on keeping on
Outside the "folk" realm, I saw Eubie Blake playing killer ragtime piano on TV well along in his 90's. He finally quit when he died, though. On his 100th, someone asked him how it felt like to be 100. Approximate quote: Like I'm 35, but something is terribly wrong with me.
