Saw Herman van Veen on concert yesterday. One of his jokes I remember went like this: "You are really lucky. 53% of my audience has already passed away."

I have been visiting his tours for about 35 years - he is still able to lift my spirits for a number of following days. Indeed it's rather funny to notice: In the 70s his typical fan was around twenty, nowadays all the visitors are around sixty - still the same people coming to his concerts. And it's good to see that most people are still behaving like being twenty.
