The County Medical Examiners is a cool Carcass clone band, not the faggy Carcass either.... they aren't metal scenesters and definitely not your stereotypical met4l dewds because they went to school and have real jobs as medical examiners (they are certified M.Ds)... anyways the bassist has a Ph.D in forensic medicine and is 61 years old. Top that

and no they dont play really fast dextrous stuff, but that shouldnt be the point of the topic, because asking "can sore old decrepit people play guitar as energetically as young people" is a stupid question

Should be normal to lose speed and/or dexterity around the age of 50... it's just in the human body. The body is bound to lose its power at that age.

That's funny, because that wasn't what I was asking. I was enquiring as to what everybody thinks is the age limit. Most have responded thoughtfully, a select few have responded (ridiculously) with, "There is no age limit" and a few others have missed the point completely, like you.

John. . . I think that is why most of us(metallers/musicians) die young. . . that way we don't have to endure the torment of seeing our bodies break down like that. I could be wrong but hey, how many of us do you see at Pink Floyd's age. I enjoy playing a lot but I doubt I will live long enough to have to worry about an age cutoff, the one for life will catch me first.

Perhaps that's because so death metal has only been around for 15-20 years. I;m not sure that made sense. I'm stoned and you seem to appreciate things a lot more, when you are.

If a death/metal band comes to the point where they are too old and slow in limbs etc. to keep up with the pace in their songs, they hopefully, and probably, have done their greatest in the past. And they will "break up" in sense of retiring as professional death/black metal performers.

I'd say the age limit depends on the individual. How insightful eh? I haven't seen anyone else point it out though. Some people deteriorate faster than others, and I'm sure alot of it has to do with personal health and diet. My guess is if you take care of yourself, eat in a healthy manner, and exercise properly you could be playing DM until your early 60s.
