( the answers no, no you're not too old to make rock and roll records)

RE: fourty ouncer | from aliMar 30 2004 - 13:49

wow, happy birthday jeff !

your age is as much of an obstacle as you want to make it, i think you know the answer to your question.......

RE: fourty ouncer | from Alex NiedtMar 30 2004 - 12:41

Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. Of course the only Lou Reed album I really listen to is "Berlin" from 1973, but he's still got an intensity and passion for what he does. And I don't even own an Iggy Pop CD, but his live television performances are insane.

RE: fourty ouncer | from cMar 30 2004 - 12:26

not to mention wire (bruce gilbert is almost 60), todd rundgren (his new album is amazing), crispy ambulance, killing joke, chris whitley, michael gira... all of these people are well over 40 and are still making great music.

RE: fourty ouncer | from stemsMar 30 2004 - 06:50

Oh, and Neil Young.

RE: fourty ouncer | from stemsMar 30 2004 - 06:48

Happy late b-day, Jeff.

You know, what the hell is age anyway? Nothing but a number?

If you were prancing aroud in spandex with giant hair like some guy from Whitesnake I would think it a bit ridiculous after like 23!

But you have a class act. Others have mentioned good examples, but also think of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen. Even Wayne from the Flaming Lips is 44 now and is at the pinnacle of his craft and success.

Keep it up as long as you have something to say and a feeling to get across. Not much music is ageless, but Idaho is for the ages.

a good bunch of us had dinner at the chateaux marmont hotel.

RE: fourty ouncer | from qMar 29 2004 - 19:42

how did you celebrate Jeff?

RE: fourty ouncer | from bkahunaMar 29 2004 - 11:21

Happy (belated) Birthday.

Johnny Cash is one answer to your question in post #1.

You (and the boys (and occaisional girl))produce the most emotionally pure music "out there", IMO.

Another thought to your question - isn't Bob Mould over 40?

RE: fourty ouncer | from Eric ArnoldMar 29 2004 - 05:29

Sure, but you'll be forced to play music with kids and ghosts ;)

RE: fourty ouncer | from cMar 29 2004 - 05:22

RE: fourty ouncer | from ckMar 28 2004 - 14:08

Happy Birthday. I'm over 40 and I feel fine.

Whoops, did I already post this?

RE: fourty ouncer | from michelMar 28 2004 - 13:31

Jeff, happy birthday eventhough a day late, another marker i guess huh? I hear life gets better after 40, so........

RE: fourty ouncer | from susan331Mar 28 2004 - 11:12

Happy birthday jeff. I think yr present to yourself this year should be finishing the new IDAHO record... and if yr feeling really generous towards yourself, how about the IDAHO dvd.

RE: fourty ouncer | from AndrewMar 27 2004 - 14:06

Dude, I had no idea you were 40! You really do look a lot younger.

RE: fourty ouncer | from adamMar 27 2004 - 13:41

Jesus you're old.... kidding. Lookin good for yer age, mr. martin. Please take a cue from Daniel Lanois and continue to make excellent records. Heppy Birthday!

RE: fourty ouncer | from susan331Mar 27 2004 - 13:30

Happy birthday you old bat

RE: fourty ouncer | from Jeff B. Mar 27 2004 - 12:57

Lordy lordy, look who's 40!
Happy Bday Jeff.

Remember, it's not how old you are, it's how old you look!

P.S. - define "rock n roll records"

RE: fourty ouncer | from Alex NiedtMar 27 2004 - 11:32

Happy birthday, Jeff!

RE: fourty ouncer | from BlueastronautMar 27 2004 - 03:31

Nope, it's lounge tours, Engelbert Humperdink, and Liberace gowns for you from now on. Oh well, it was good while it lasted. You could always start planning for your comeback record, after you've spent a decade in Vegas and five or so years in a log cabin studying Bhuddism in the Appalachians.
Whatever, have a fine birthday. here's to many more trips around the sun for you, and much more subli,me and beautiful music for the rest of us.
Happy Birthday...
