Between 35 and 40 would be my guess.

Benton's destroyed himself through drugs and being a dumbass more than touring.

Look at Paco de Lucia. 57 or 58 and still shreds better with his fingers than pretty much any guitar hero you can name. If you're smart about how you play you can last. If you're a dumbass, you'll have arthritic wrists at 25. But I figure the 50s-60s will be the limit.

Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top is 56 and he is already losing his ability to play. I saw him last year and he makes mistakes like crazy. I would think around eighty would be the limit for an extremely healthy individual. Most will probably lose it between 50 and 60.

Age limit on metal Hell no! I'll be playing until the day I die, even if I'm 86. I'll still play or at least try like I was still 15. Playing fast isn't hard for me. I just relax and breath.

I don't think there is a limit for how old you can be. If you enjoy playing then you should continue with that, even if you get like 60 years old(headbanging grandpa).

Kerry said on the WatW DVD that they would stop when they felt they couldn't do it anymore.

Totally. My retirement plan is to be in a mellow groovy jazz type thing playing in an upscale club as the house band. Set a cool mood and pick on all the young stupid fucks that come into the place.

You're right: there isn't an age limit per se, but there are inevitable physical constrictions that will become more evident with age, ie, stamina for sustained tremelo picking or a decrease in general dexterity.

Well, as long as you can still come up with the riffs, that's all it needs to be. For example When the Necrophagist guys get to old for their shit, they might realise that music dosn't have to be the most inane and complex shit on the history of the universe and they might discover just making simple but great riffs. Like I'm saying that as they get old and can no longer play it, they don't have to give up, just make it less crazy and start working on killer riffs not killing wrists

well is what i think is as time goes on people will be able to play older and older and push the envelope. i mean 35 years ago 200bpm didnt even exist now we have bands doing over 300bpm. so as time goes on things will get more extreme and last longer do to people pushing the envelope. that is how i see it in my eyes.

There must come a point in one's life when one can no longer sustain 16ths at 240bpm or possess the required dexterity to pull off technical riffs a la Suffocation, Nile, et cetera.

I guess when the likes of Jeff and Kerry from Slayer hit 50+ we'll start to get an indication of the effects on the human body - more specifically the wrist and arm - of people who have played fast and physically demanding music for very long periods of time.

What do you think bands will do? Break up? Adapt to their ever decreasing capabilities?


Iron Maiden is doing just fine.. same with Priest.. just saw them last night.. KICKED ASS.

Age is only a number.

If Kerry King has the drooping balls to play a Slayer show at the age of 70 when he is "still kickin' like a buffalo chicken" with his necro skull'n'bones walker and powerchair, then I respect him for making an utter fool of himself just to bring laughter to my voice. Yet I doubt he would do such a thing.
