Ringo Starr's 2016 Fort Wayne Concert

Just finished watching a recorded concert that Ringo Starr did in Ft Wayne, IN back in 2016.  The concert featured Ringo along with some other Rockers from various groups but one thing was apparent.  Ringo still had his ability to entertain and sing as well as jump around on stage like he was back in his 20''s. Not bad for a guy that was pushing 76 years old. 

Through the years Ringo has developed many musical friends due to his assistance and help with various projects and I guess some of them are  just paying back a favor but as each played some of their respective hit songs, along with some of Ringo's and some he had participated in I thought about how I hope I'm able to move around and have as much (apparent) vigor when, and if, I ever make it to that age.

Glad to hear Ringo doing well. Ringo always seemed to be the Introvert in a room full of extroverts. As John & Paul commanded the spot light of attention & direction of the Beatles. During together and after the breakup. If I am not mistaken, Ringo was the Oldest in the group.

Ringo Starr, Beatles, and Mick Jagger, Rolling Stones, still can move well.  There's even a song "Move Like Jagger" popular with the younger crowd.  

Looking at Keith Richards and seeing his past one wonders if he isn't walking around embalmed from all his years of drinking.

Plus, an entire pharmacopeia of drugs.  Last time I saw a face like his, an Egyptologist was unwrapping it.

I think Steven Tyler is dead, but he's still making Keith Richards
look young and Mick Jagger still hasn't broke 100 lbs yet.
