How did this happen? I’m almost as old as the rock stars who were ancient when I was a kid!

Stevie Wonder: How come we’re nearly the same age now

 

I am outraged.

I was watching a bit of Stevie Wonder on the Now 70s Channel (373 on Sky). If the telly is on during the day, that’s what’s I watch since the Vintage channel died.

Anyway, I decided to Google Stevie.

The bastard! He’s only two years older than me!
How did that happen?

I’m almost certain that, when I was a teenager, he was at least ten if not fifteen years old than me.

Something has happened,

So I checked a little more

Agnetha from Abba? Two years older than me.

Steve Ellis from Love Affair? Barely two years older.

Jim Lea from Slade? Three years older.

Jeff Lynne – I mean I thought he was ancient – just five years older.

And here’s a shocker.

Les McKeown from the (dreadful) Bay City Rollers?

He’s actually a couple of years younger than me.

And that those whippersnappers in U2, the schoolkids?

Well, Bono and Adam both hit 60 this year.

Bono, Adam, Les McKeown and me all in our sixties at the same time.

It’s ridiculous,

  2. And the one I like is Neil Armstrong born 5 August 1953. At least one of you joined the stars
