If anybody needs inspiration to keep playing into advanced years, pick up a Pinetop Perkins CD and listen that AMAZING oldster. I'm winging it because I'm at work, but, if memory serves, he was 81 when he recorded his first solo CD and 87 or 89 when he did the one I have. Strong, young-sounding voice and great piano work. Well worth a listen even without any consideration of age.
