I often wonder if I am the oldest dude in this forum or if there are any of you fine musicians older then me?
To any of you that are older then me how long have you been playing music and on what instruments?
I was started on Piano lessons when I was just passed 5 so it is 70 years of music for me. I have studied and played most all instruments over the years but worked only using Piano, Organ, Accordion, trumpet, Tenor/Clarinet and guitar.
I started out my big band life in the 5th grade playing Cymbals until I got my first trumpet, an OLDS Ambassador, because Charley Spivak played one and was my idol
I think this starts my 8th year in the Synthzone too
Best to all,
Bebop

You're just a youngster, Bill. Lots of older folks here (including me). There's lots of birthdays still on the horizon with music in our hearts.

Happy birthday, Bebop!! You're 9 years older than me and Lord willing, you'll stay that way for many years to come. I'm shooting for 130 myself, so hang in there! I grew up in a home with music all around me, but didn't start playing until I bought a guitar and amp from a Sears catalog when I was 24. Never really developed any talent at music, but I keep hoping. There are a few people who can put up with my playing, so I'm happy. And, if playing music is all it takes to be happy, I'll play until my fingers fall off. Have a great birthday, Bill!!

Bebop,

You are a household word in this forum and not because of age, but your contributions. I am 80+ and a lot younger than Walt.
Started playing many years ago with a Hammond Chord Organ in Alaska. Can't say that I have improved much, but I have had a lot of fun trying without formal lessons.

I know that I and the other 40+ attending the Florida Keyboard Conference would love to have you attend. Maybe you can hitch a ride with Glen Smith in his motor home.

Happy birthday Bebop.
