 I feel the same way. I was born in 77.

 The year my first daughter was born :o :o :o

 Great band..what Denny said. They left their mark on the World.

 Rock on.

I was about to comment on how old I felt seeing people on here talk about how they were in high school during Sept 11th.  I was in college...I suppose I'm still youngish by the books, but I feel old, very old.  I like to think you're as old as you feel, and I've happily entered my crotchety old man phase.  You!  You kids!  Get off my lawn!

Bah, age is a mental  state, ask Denny, he'll tell you.  I was born in the 60s as well, butt up against the start of them,  but I still feel young!

I was born in '74...Bands like REM & the B-52s wrote much of the soundtrack of my youth, even though they seemed 'Half a World Away'.

For some reason, rap music makes me feel old.  Every person less than 20 years old seems to have rap on his or her radio/cd/ipod.  It's not pretty, it's not easy to listen to, and I'm thinking that they don't like it either - they just play it to annoy people older than 20.  Works for me.
I was born in 1952, so I hit the perfect music period when I was 16 to 25.

I was in college when 9/11 happened.  I graduated in 2003.  I was 48 when I graduated.

All that age s*** is relativistic.  I've been traveling at 0.95C for 56 years my time.  It's been over three centuries Earth time.  I took my Principles of Electricity course with Professor Benjamin Franklin.  I learned calculus from Liebnitz. (Newton was only partially right - see Einstein).

Crotchety old man phase?  I'm too busy riding my bike, hiking the lava flows, and freediving on the coastline to be crotchety.  I'll save the crotchety s*** for the 23rd century.

Was Frankenstein just Einstein being frank?

There's a lot of bands today that have been around just as long that I wish would break up.  R.E.M. wouldn't have been one of them though.
Go big AND go home.

The break up came as news to me. I had no idea they were still considered "together". Thought they had called it quits back in the mid 90's. Then again, I've never been a fan.
