Here is a headline for a story in a broadcasting industry website I visit daily: Lynyrd Skynyrd Keyboardist Undergoes Hip Replacement Surgery.
You don't even need to hear the details in the story to understand what I mean, do you?
These guys were a big deal in the early days of my radio career. In fact, I was on the air the night their plane crashed in Mississippi in the mid 70s and played nothing but their music all night. Many of the country music singers I now love were influenced by their country-flavored Southern rock sound and many country songs refer to them or their music. The remaining members still play.
But the thought that their keyboard guy had a hip replacement is almost too much to handle. How old are those guys anyway?
It's the End of the World As We Know It...
