Oh, What A Night

We just came back from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fl. We went to see Frankie Valli in concert. At 83, he was amazing. While he definitely looks older and moves a little slower, the voice and spirit was as young as it was in 1962.

He may not hit the high notes as well as he did before, but compared to most of the male singers today, he did very well. It’s astonishing how much energy he exuded for almost two hours on stage. I was a little nervous that he would pass out, but that was my neuroses, not his. He showed no signs of exhaustion, and knew how to pace himself.

It would have been fun to ask Frankie about getting older. How does he maintain his energy and strength. Other men his age are sitting in front of a TV set not moving. He can’t sit still. What gives? The answer is probably pretty simple. If you like what you are doing, you can go on forever.
