Check out this article:

It touches on a specific age group, the one that I fall into, and makes some interesting points.

I stopped keeping track of that after 25. Took me a second to remember that I’m in the next age bracket. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Thank you @Hildy – great article. Substitute the word siblings with the word cousins and much of that article describes my experience, albeit late in the game.

 I’m 57.  Inside I don’t feel old, but outside is apparently a different matter.  I was staying at an airport hotel with my wife a few weeks ago when we were woken at 2.30am by two men having a heated discussion right outside our room.  I opened the door and asked them to be quiet.  They were surprisingly apologetic but ruined it all by saying ‘Sorry Granddad’! 

The problem is I am a Granddad, and have been for seven years.  So I’m coming to terms with being considered decrepit by anyone younger than 30!

And some people consider it none of anyone’s business – and there is generally a negative societal attitude to the elderly to contend with, particularly with regard to jobs and dating anyone of significantly different age – so lots of reasons.

Having said that, I’m 58 and don’t give a fig who knows it.

I like that The Beatles attract young people. It shows that their music is ageless. Incidentally, I wonder (and not to stray too far off topic) how many young people like Elvis. Elvis is my new obsession.

I don’t mean you, @Expert Textpert, just generally, but when it comes to the Beatles, I think I’m getting sick of being “young people”. As if young people are not supposed to like the Beatles, and it’s an anomaly if a young person has sense enough to recognise greatness loves such an “old” band. (They were new in their day!…) People tend to forget that the Beatles’ original audience WAS young people.  Their music is ageless; older folk who grew up with them and younger folk who wish they’d been teenagers when the older folk were teenagers alike love them, because they’re just plain great. Age matters a lot less than many people are predisposed to think. (Though of course it is an interesting thread topic :) …)

My comment wasn’t so much about young people as about the timelessness of The Beatles. Not to say, “Oh those young people DO have good taste,” but that we see exactly how cool The Beatles really are every time a young person likes them.

Myself, I had Let It Be when I was 12 (1982), but that was the extent of my fandom. I tried to get into the White Album in 1992, and didn’t like it.

I didn’t really start appreciating them until I was about 40.

I know, and I realised this, but it just reminded me of generally, like the other day when I was at an orthodontist’s, and was asked what kind of music I like, and I explained, and the orthodontist (an older fellow) said, “Oh, that’s my generation.” ahdn_george_08grrrrrr. Just a pet peeve, and I’d better go over there now. :)

I know what you mean. I don’t like it when Beatles articles are all about the baby boomers getting older, and “their” music.
