Thanks Mac and your brother to post that on the Audiominds forum:

You know you're too old to play gigs when:

  1. It becomes more important to find a place on stage for your fan than your amp
  2. Your gig clothes make you look like George Burns out for a round of golf.
  3. All your fans leave by 9:30 p.m.
  4. All you want from groupies is a foot massage and back rub
  5. You love taking the elevator because you can sing along with most of your playlist
  6. Instead of fifth member, your band wants to spring for a roadie
  7. You lost the directions to the gig
  8. You need your glasses to see the amp settings
  9. You've thrown out your back jumping off the stage
  10. You feel like #### before the gig even starts.
  11. The waitress is your daughter
  12. You stop the set because your ibuprofen fell behind the speakers
  13. Most of your crowd just sways in their seats
  14. You find your drink tokens from last month's gig in your guitar case
  15. You refuse to play without earplugs
  16. You ask the club owner if you can start at 8:30 instead of 9:30
  17. You check the TV schedule before booking a gig
  18. Your gig stool has a back
  19. You're related to at least one member in the band
  20. You don't let any one sit in
  21. You need a nap before the gig
  22. After the third set, you bug the club owner to let you quit early.
  23. During the breaks, you now go to the van to lay down
  24. You prefer a music stand with a light
  25. You don't recover until Tuesday afternoon
  26. You hope the host's speech lasts forever.....
  27. You buy amps considering their weight and not their tone or cool factor.
  28. Feeling guilty looking at hot women at the bar 'cause they're younger than your daughter.
  29. You can remember seven different club names for the same location ...
  30. You have a hazy memory of the days when you could work 10 gigs in 7 days ... *and* could physically do it.

H/T to my brother Marshall for this one, dunno where he got it, let's make it go viral by Wednesday!
