Been to five concerts in the last ten days.  Attending concerts this fall, I am as aware as ever of the prevalence of gray hair around me, often cited as a sign that Classical music is dying.

But wait a minute.

The average life expectancy in this country is 78.2 years.  If we assume that most of us start turning gray in our 40s, then that means that the majority of our adult lives is spent with gray hair.

And if that’s the case, then the music that attracts the most gray-haired listeners must be the most successful.

I’m just saying.

    Got a good point there, Steven. A lot of us begin and end life bald.
