What do you do when legendary singers come to your town? Do you purchase tickets and start searching for that perfect concert outfit or do you google them to see what they currently look like and read their recent reviews?
Do you go to the show with your ears and heart open or do you stay home because somebody said, “They sure don’t sound like they used to!”
If you’re the latter, I’d like to ask a few things…
When you go to an event, do you search your closet for an outfit that looked good on you twenty years ago?
Do your outfits from twenty years ago still fit you?
When you do that dance you did in the 90’s, do you think you look the same doing it now?
Are the things that jiggle now the same things that jiggled then?
Is your hair color naturally the same?
Do you have the same energy you had at age 20?
How about your lung capacity?
If you answered “NO” to any of the above, do you expect people to treat you differently because of it? Do you feel any less capable or gifted in your art? Have you lost all of your passion?
If not, then you should go out and support the legends that sang the songs you love…especially the ones you still know all the words to. They’re likely just as passionate about their work, as ever.
Treat your mature self to a concert of mature sound, remembering every moment that your legends aren’t the only ones that have aged. Expect a great time and you’ll find one, because good music, like good love, only gets better with time.

Absolutely love this post! I sometimes have found myself saying, “But she doesn’t sound the same.” Reading your take on the matter will STOP me from making that statement again. Thank you.
