OK, I’m 63 and a quarter (nearly) and have been retired for over 4 years, but have never felt “old”, though am unfit, overweight and drink too much.Today I went to see the touring ‘musical’ Let It Be – I probably don’t need to tell you the gist of this – and I quite enjoyed it, though it wasn’t as good as the Bootleg Beatles doing Sgt Pepper last year. However, on my way home I began to reflect on why I felt let down; then it came to me – a vast proportion of the audience seemed to be older than me. These people shouldn’t like the same music as me. What happened to the generation gap? I suppose that I am of the first generation when the “gap” was invented – but it seems to have moved, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I have no kids of my own, so I am not used to so-called generation gaps further down the line – I like what I like, and don’t care what youngsters like, but I do take exception to oldies liking the same as me. I realise that I am being extremely unreasonable in having this view, but am I alone? Should I just get a life? I really think that I expected everyone to be the same as me! Perhaps they are, as I suppose people 10 years older than me would have been going to see the originals as I went to see the rock bands of the early seventies. I think I’ve answered my own question, but I still feel uneasy.
