Is 70 the new 60?

Sunday’s L.A. Times:

Herbie Hancock, at the top of his game at 70. Big story.

Gustavo Dudamel, a phenomenon at 28. Big ad.

Dennis Hopper exhibit at MOCA . Pretty big story. Hopper died just days after turning 74.

My conclusions:

Actual “age” isn’t that relevant.

The oldest, first wave boomers, the Zoomers, are already 64. And they don’t seem old at all.

70 sounds old, but if Herbie Hancock is 70, than 70 isn’t old.

Can I believe my lying eyes?
