This Old Dude Rocking Metallica is All of Us in 30 Years
You know how your parents react and jam out to classics and oldies when they're driving down the road? That's going to be all of us at some point. But instead of breaking the rules and creasing your slacks because Elvis or The Beatles bring that restless leg syndrome out in you, it'll be neck woes due to the mandatory banging to greats like 80's Metallica, anything Slayer, early Slipknot, that first Avenged Sevenfold album, etc... Just the cream of the modern rock crop.
This dude is awesome. Obviously, he's pushing some years on those around him, but you have to solute both he and the cameraman. If he wasn't old, there wouldn't have been a reason to film this, and I don't want to live in a world where this gem isn't available online. So that's what you have to look forward to. Being the old dude rolling down the road blaring the classics like your stereo owes you money. Nothing wrong with it at all. The kids call it "Living your best life." Seems legit.
Come to think of it... How old are we now considering "old?" I'm in my mid-30's, and while I don't consider myself "old," my teenage nephews think I'm ancient. Funny enough, I don't feel like my youthful prime was that long ago. But the days of partying and all-nighters is long gone. I woke up to the realization only a few years ago that I set my alarm everyday to get an early start, even on the weekends. By midnight, I'm lulling to sleep in my recliner. There is such a thing as "too loud" these days. And I honestly find myself admiring the few nice lawns around my neighborhood. My buddies and I grill out like always, but instead of babes and the newest releases, we find ourselves talking about what plants would really make the flower beds pop. Getting old is weird. You don't even realize you're doing it.
If you're young, enjoy it. It doesn't last forever, and it won't likely last much longer for you. You'll be rocking those white dad-shoes and jorts before too long.
