Ahh, youth

Interesting article in the New York Times today about Keith Richards having a hole drilled in his head.

Here's a curious excerpt:

Mr. Richards, 62, thanked the hospital staff for what he termed the "truly wonderful" care he received in the hospital, according to an article today in the New Zealand Herald. "From the doctors to the beautiful ladies who make painful nights less painful and shorter, I'm pretty much at a loss for words to express my deep gratitude," he said, according to the newspaper.

I guess when you're a living-legend, and 62, you can get away with such euphemisms. Got me wondering how old some other living-legends are.

David Bowie = 59

Paul McCartney = 64

BB King = 81

Elvis Presley = 71 (and counting)
