Lots of yesteryears music stars and idols are slowly giving in , fading away or have retired , or worst , expired
So , who is left to carry the torch , a few come to mind for me , they are touring , releasing new albums and doing a great swan song and aging well
Billy gibbons new blues album , stones won a Grammy , deff leopard , Paul carrack , billy Joel , Steve Earle ..

Dale McCrory, Sam Bush, John Prine, and Todd Snider... I mostly mention Todd, because he used to sleep on my couch, but I still love his misic, especially his new band, Hard Working Americans.

Saw Billy Joel at Madison Square Gardens last year. Great show. Only a few left on my bucket list - John Prine at the top of the list.

Yeah, John Prine from my hometown area (he's Maywood, and I'm Park Ridge, a bicycle ride). Also, Tony Bennett; that old man can sing, and sing with anyone too. Many others, but too many. Leonard Cohen -- went to Montreal on my sixtieth, and he's in the air, the lyrical flow and the sense of impending winter ... oops, Leonard ain't still with us, but he is.

Central Ohio
Just saw John Prine last night in Columbus, Ohio..............Lilly Hiatt opened up- she's the daughter of John Hiatt, and quite a talent. It was an incredible show................ :puffy:
Next week I'm heading to Akron to Chris Hillman and Roger McGuinn team up and do the whole "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" album, in honor of its 50th anniversary............... Really looking forward to it!...........

Saw Cohen in '08 or '09. Wonderful. His last album was among his best, which is quite a feat, as he must have been very frail by then.

'90s band but The Breeders have picked back up their instruments and I'll be seeing them shortly.

I can't claim her as a favorite musically, but I admire her rocking on, and enjoy her writing quite a bit -- Patti Smith.

And, speaking of survivors, Willie Nelson.

Dom Flemen, not an oldster, but no kid, remarkable with both lyrics and melody. Changes in key, tempo, and endless upbeat energy. And let's not forget the eternal Ralph Stanley.

Many of the artists mentioned are amazing and some of my favorite concert experiences including Dylan, Young, Sam Bush, and Ralph Stanley.
@cosmic Wow, Snider sleeping on your couch. That’s wild. Love the guitarist in HWA, Neal Casal. He’s had a pretty cool career.
Some of my other favorites include the living members of the Dead, Phish, Umphey’s McGee, Widespread Panic, David Gilmore, Bela Fleck. . .

Really there are too many to name. I might have more of a disorder for live music than PAD or TAD.

I saw Ozzy Osborne earlier this summer. Not really a favourite, but he needs mentioning.
