Hope I Die Before I — Uh Never Mind

The classic American midlife crisis has found a new outlet: garage-band rock ’n’ roll. Baby boomers across the US — mostly middle-aged dads who never quite outgrew an obsession with the music of their youth — are cranking up their amps and living their rock ’n’ roll fantasies.

“We recommend ‘Mustang Sally’ as a good starter song,” Mr. Lamond said. “A bad starter song is anything by Steely Dan, or Frank Zappa. Or Yes.”

    Who’s callin’ who middle-aged? If you got the need, man, just do it. Like the 15 year old I’ve been haulin’ around inside of me all of these years tends to say: I WANNA ROCK!

    Zappa did a version of ‘Owner of a Lonely Heart’ in the middle of ‘Bamboozled by Love’ in 1984.
