A 73-year-old playing classical piano



Is that Brian May doing a cameo?

Not quite classical Obo but I get what you mean.:)

My 70 year old elder is a mean saxophonist and still plays with his band once a week on Canadian radio.

Music is only a hobby but the same 4 men have stayed together for 30+ years now.

I have to admit (although I don't want to) that he sounds just as good as he did when he was a teenager.

So, that's something for you to aim towards Obo - being obnoxious in 50 years time lol.

I think it is one of those ensemble showcases where they get a big name accompanied by other established well known musicians as the backing group.

So yes i believe you are correct it is Brian May.

Also Dave Edmunds on guitar and Donald Duck Dunn on bass.
Trust me, I'm a guitarist.

Didn't he also shoot his bass player?
A rich full life...

Yeah he shot his bass player in the chest with a .357, ouch, bass player lived.

He also showed up at Graceland, drunk, armed and looking for Elvis, the day after he'd gotten fucked up and rolled his new Rolls.

These both occurred in 1976.
