AARP Rockers at Summerfest

Summerfest M&I Miller StageI received this in the morning email roundup today and started to get both nostalgic and curious. I mean, these acts have been around a long time. So I wanted to know who was old enough to be eligible for Social Security and Medicare (62 years old). So after the list below, I built another table with ages of the performers. If it’s a band, I usually chose the singer and or other prominent members. I thought it was amusing.

PS, for those of you coming from outside the area, Summerfest is one of the largest music festivals in the country. Over 700 bands during the 11 days of the festival, it attracts close to a million people. Check it out at Summerfest.com
