"Forever young, I wanna be forever young!", sung Alphaville and yet – even they grew older one day. But how does a musician deal with growing old after a lifetime of live performances, long tours and constant creative outputs? Is it possible to return to a “normal” life once you’ve experienced the full-on life of a musician, maybe even one filled with successes? Is it even possible to feel old when you’re up on that stage as a 70-year old? In “Never Get Old? Interviews with Musician on Getting Older”, Jörn Morisse and Oliver Koch put these questions to artists who were once famous, who may even have had an international hit out and who retired from the music business at some stage, as well as to people who continued to live as active musicians into old age, and people who are maybe not so young, and yet not quite so old, but are right in the middle.
