Subject: RE: You Know You're Too Old To Gig When ...
You haven't learned a new song since the last millenium.

You've been singing from a chair since your hip replacement.

Kids know all your covers, because they studied the bands in school.

You get a lot of calls to play wakes.

You get a request for "Proud Mary" a bar, and your band doesn't know it.

You get a request for "The Killers", and play "Great Balls of Fire".

Some one asks if you about iPods, and you say, "No, I wear bifocals."

You try to seem hip by making jokes about "Saturday Night Fever" and Liza Minnelli.

You try to get the crowd to do a "wave".

You keep asking waitress for a Harvey Wallbanger, and she finally calls the bouncer.

You think the crowd is calling "Bruce, Bruce", when they're actually booing.
