Subject: RE: Oldtimers who just keep on keeping on
Pinetop Perkins performed into his 90s as well, Othar Turner seemed to go on for ever. Humphrey Lytelton is still blowing as well as ever at 85. Sadly, George Melly is still performing but not very well now, at 80. Most of the jazz heroes of my youth are in their 70s, many still performing.
