I remember when an old person was my grandma. Now most of my contemporaries are grandparents and I have discovered the older generation is not an alien race.
Most of us grew up with rock and roll and remember the Swinging 60s (or parts of it) and the psychedelic 70s.
Which is why these rock classics of the past, with an occasional tweak, are bound to make those of a certain age smile at the memories and acknowledge the passing of time.
