Used To Be


John Lennon said once that the Beatles could never get back together because it would just be four old guys who used to be the Beatles.

I think about that from time to time.  I know what he meant– it will never be the 60s again– but musicians can make make music all their lives.  The Rolling Stones are still the Rolling Stones, and if you liked them then you probably like them now.

On the other hand, if you brought together the 1978 Dallas Cowboys you would have a bunch of old men who used to be The Cowboys.

I have changed some as I’ve grown up.  When I was younger my emotions led me around by the nose, and I’ve gained a degree of control over that.

But essentially, I’m still the same.  Old Abbie isn’t that much different than Young Abbie.

Regardless of what the mirror says.
