Rock music keeps ‘my generation’ young
Boomers raised on rock, R&B still find the music a vital source of expression and healing

While rock may have started out as music by and for young people, just because they’re older now is no reason for that generation to miss a back-beat.“It keeps you young. When you’ve done a great show and laid it all on the line, it’s very healing,’’ said Asa Brebner, a 58-year-old guitarist.
