Another Blast From The Past

There's nothing like a little reality check, now and then. There's nothing like someone reminding you that you aren't getting younger.

As I consider what defines a "golden oldie", I can only conclude it all comes down to the individual. If you asked me and I had to make a call for the good of the team, I'd would say 20 years has always been as good of a gauge as any. It's not that important, I know. But we are just having a little fun here, right?

For the male side of the raspy cigarette soaked voice, we have an old rock and roller (who has always been able to put together a good performance in each of his four decades, of his star-studded career). Here is a classic 1990 remake of a 1966 Isley Brothers hit, see if you remember it:
