When members of legendary bands reach a certain age, it’s almost expected that they’ll ride off into the sunset and enjoy retirement. Many rock legends do indeed decide to hang up the frets and spend their golden years reminiscing about the good old days or exploring a side project.
These 12 legendary bands eschew all that to tour. With some of these groups featuring members in their 70s, it’s pretty impressive that they still take their show on the road.
