Top 5 Musicians Over 70

By 9  am on

While Ft. Lauderdale elderly home care providers know that aging can get in the way of hobbies and interests, not all seniors let their age slow them down and stop them from performing. Instead of retiring to enjoy their profits, these five musical artists over 70 years are still touring and creating new works.

1. Sir Paul McCartney

Ever since his groundbreaking work as a member of the Beatles, Paul McCartney has been one of the world’s most recognizable singers. The singer-songwriter is now 74, yet he continues to perform concerts and release new material. Next year, McCartney is taking a break from his musical career to act in the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

2. Cher

Diva and icon Cher continues to be one of the leading ladies of pop at the age of 70 and she upholds her reputation as a beautiful and glamorous woman adored by fashionistas worldwide. After her recent release of her 25th musical album, Cher is now busy working on the script for a Broadway play based on her life.

3. Bob Dylan

In addition to his iconic rock anthems, one of the most noteworthy aspects of Dylan’s career is his Never Ending Tour. The tour was kicked off in 1988, and at the age of 75, Dylan is still continuing this lengthy tour with 80 to 100 concerts each year.

4. Neil Young

Seventy-year-old Neil Young is known for his eclectic music career that includes both electronic and folk genres. He continues to tour and perform despite his advanced years and he recently released a new album in June called Earth that focuses on his appreciation of nature.

5. Aretha Franklin

She is often called “The Queen of Soul” thanks to her hit songs like “Respect” and “I Say a Little Prayer.” Even at the age of 74, her voice is still incredibly deep and powerful. Franklin has recovered from her cancer scare a few years ago and she still performs regularly for her fans.
