Ozzy's older than 55. Dio is 400, and I'm positive he's more metal than you.

What bands are doing over 300bpm?

about physical limits, look at what over practising did to Demonaz from Immortal. There was a point in his life where "he couldnt even wash his hair".
Now thats fucked... im so careful now aobut my strap height and not overpracticing, if i wasnt able to play guitar, i would proabaly consider killing myself, its one of the two things that i actually love doing. Tendonitis bad!

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.


You stole my thoughts and made them your own. For that you shall suffer.
Just kidding, you summed it up pretty good there, man.
BTW, I'd kill to go see that particular Slayer show.
On a side note, has anyone seen that Rammstein video where they're all wearing fat suits and rocking out? Fucking priceless. They look like a bunch of old, fat ass mafiosos jamming out some tunes.
To the guy who said no metal past 55, that's bullshit. I think playing thrash at 55 with the grey hair and everything might look a bit silly, but playing just metal with some deep lyrics, that would be bad ass. Shit, Iommi's been around forever now, and look at him, he's nowhere near stopping. My lead guitarist's dad is in his 50s I believe, and he outshreds us both. I'm thinking about just letting him play guitar, I'll just design the cover for the CD or something.
So, anyway, my point is that age just opens up your eyes and your mind to more things and influences, thereby enhancing your music, it certainly doesn't limit you. It seems to me that playing guitar, or music in general, only has a positive effect on your age, because if you look at all the guitar greats, they hardly ever look their age.
BTW, none of the above applies if your influences include, or are limited to Linkin Park. In this case, by the time you are 55, you can do whatever you want, no one will care. On the bright side, you don't have to worry about losing your playing ability as you get older, because when it comes to skill, you've already hit rock bottom and started digging. It really can't get that much worse.

i cant think of any song where a guitar plays straight 16th on 240 bpm through the whole song ( or even nearly). most riffs on that speedlevel are pussy cause they involve thousands of pull of/hammer on shit or even pause with 8th in em.
i never saw i guitaist playing straight 16th on 300 bpm either so ...

anyways the older you get the more problems you will get with your joints. although i guess stamina is the worse problem for a guitar player. it sounds strange but i know that its very taxing to play difficult stuff on stage. apart from all that i would laugh my ass off if someone of bb.kings age would play deathmetal style of music. just would look stupid.

bill gibbons loses his ability to play? maybe he was just inna bad mood the evening u saw him preform.

I don't know, it actually looks kinda badass seeing an old evil worn out looking bald dude playing metal. How much more twisted does it get then that?

Anyone ever seen a Straping Young Lad video? That dude just looks sinister.

He's hardly kicking out Smashing The Antiu every night though is he?

55 might well be too early though. BLS raised a good point with Maiden and Priest, however the real acid test will be when Slayer (who are probably the longest serving of the mega-fast picking bands) can no longer perform fast songs like Angel Of Death, Hallowed Point and Raining Blood live. This may well be a good few years off, but the day will approach whether you want to believe it or not.

Well, I hope age doesn't have anything to do with it. I've started late so I got a long way to go. It's becoming easier to play as time goes on so there is still hope for me.

I believe that age isn't really an issue, it's if the fans make it an issue. You see bands that have had the big show in the past but nowadays, they hardly have anyone on stage to watch them. Evidence: Annihalator

LOL, I seen that video. Bald on top... long ass hair on the side. Looks pretty wicked. They jam though!


I believe we'll all "eventually" settle down, not by change in taste, but human body constraints. argh!!!! I hate the thought of not being able to thrash raging fuckin mad because my body can't keep up with it. Guess I'll just have to pump more meth into my bloodstream! MUWHAWHAWHA!!

I think they call that strapping young lad guys hair a "skullet". Makes sense and is fu**ing hilarious.

That is what I thought would look like one day. At least now I know it looks cool. I would even look like that or just shave my head. Some of us are going to lose our hair like it or not
