    Yep, that’s right. I’m giving up uke if according to this chart right now, most ukers don’t live past 80! Uke could be the cause of it. We need to see more 80 and above folk well and alive and ukeing of course. Bleh.

    I'll see if I can have our 100 years old uke club member take the survey. Probably not, he's not big on using the Internet. But you never know.

    LOL. I am only 81, however I plan to make 105. I think music keeps one alive more than the reverse.

    I'm another of the 80+ group. Like Johnny, I'm 81 and still going strong. Well - not as strong as hitherto, but doin' OK. These days, it takes longer for me to memorise a new song, to the point where I can perform it without a cheat sheet. If I neglect it, the song will very soon fade away. Heigh-Ho.

    It seems that Lennon-McCartney picked the right age when they wrote "When I'm 64".

    If it wasn't for the pink 30 to 39 bar in the chart, I'd think that the 60 to 69 group was giving us the finger! Oh, wait! I'm part of that group...

    There are many old men everywhere in open mic, music events and concerts. I try not to be a dirty old man.

    1. good instruments
    2. good case
    3. avoid old music sheets (Otherwise people sometimes think me play same songs over 20 years)
    4. old songs are ok but pretend to be new challenge
    5. sing in stand posture

    I prefer to avoid stage 3. altogether, but my memory is not as reliable as it used to be.

    A lot of the over 80's don't even have computers, let alone know how to use forums, so don't count on seeing them here.

    Well, you have a long way to go, in that case. Imagine the amount of UAS to live with!

    That’s true. My 80+ years old Father in law simply cannot use or understand internet. He does own several laptops though.
