The Death of Gods

I can't find it now but there was a piece a few years back about how all the Rock Gods from the 60s/70s are going to die fairly soon.  The ones who are still alive, anyway.   Maybe there's too much emphasis placed on that cultural moment, though I still hear that stuff in the hipster coffee shop.  Getting older provides a lot of perspective (too much fucking perspective) on ageing, and it's "funny" realizing these guys were barely older than my parents('38, '39), and not even boomers in some cases.  The other funny thing is realizing how young many were when they became big.
