Re: This is what he pays me for

No worries... you didn't cause any real grief. Honestly, I was just trying to puzzle through how it was that I had such a different experience than you. Granted, I didn't stay for Bonnie Raitt's performance and so missed the juxtaposition you observed. Still, Shirley Manson's age never once struck me in the course of her performance or afterwards.

I don't disagree with you over your ideas about youth and rebellion, but I do think its possible to grow with one's art and still have it remain relevant and timely. Admittedly, some do it more gacefully than others. While it remains to be seen whether Garbage will successfully adapt in this way, I do think it's a little too early to start questioning whether they're too old to be doing what they're doing.

I mean, heck, Shirley's a mere 2 months older than Björk (and she's one that you don't want to touch.) ;)
