Rock of Aging

A Parody/Revue of the Music of the 60's and 70's


What happens when one hasn't planned very well for retirement? The fading yet formerly hit 60's and 70's rock and roll group of Willy Withers, Tina Tumor, and Rickie D. Bones are finding out. These aging rockers, forced to sing for their supper by taking any gigs they can, notice more each day how hard it is to "keep on keepin' on." The group forges a new bond as they give the songs of their youth fresh meaning--singing about such aging maladies as weight gain, memory loss, and gastric issues (think about having that first colonoscopy performed to the chorus, "Snake it up doctor, if you twist I'll shout!"). Together these Boomers learn that while aging "ain't for sissies," they're more than ready, with the help of their beloved rock and roll, to face and to celebrate all the challenges that growing older brings.
