Most Helpful Guy
For a run of nearly 40 years, I can see why they're retiring. There's a part of me that feels depressed but the other more logical side can see why they're doing it. There's been other musicians who've been around as long as they have who couldn't remember their lyrics while on stage. If it were my choice as a musician I'd stop before I got to that point, I would want to retire, I don't want my last few tours to be staring at an audience forgetting words, or feeling tired. Imagine dying on stage from natural causes, I'm almost certain that it'd scar some audience members along with set crews. So, with all that said, I wish them happiness on their retirement.
