Golden Oldies

So Glastonbury 2013 is in the books!

And what did it have to offer? Well there were breath-taking sets from band-of-the-moment Mumford and Sons, Arctic Monkeys storming back onto the music scene with an awesome set on Friday night, as well as great sets from Dizzee Rascal, Azelia Banks and Haim. But the talk of the weekend was of a few pensioners- The Rolling Stones and Bruce Forsyth!

The Stones (finally) played a headline set at Glastonbury, in what you have to call even with there legacy is a landmark/career defining gig. They rocked the pyramid stage for just shy of two hours, belting out classics, crowd pleasers, and even some obscurities, proving to the world on one of it’s biggest stages that they can still go some!

The other big story coming from Glastonbury was Brucie. To simply put it, he was amazing. Entertaining, funny, crowd pleasing, proving why he is such a legend in the world of showbiz.

So with Brucie and the stones stealing the limelight from there younger counterparts this year, what does the younger generation have to do? Is it simply just because of legacy? or is there just a lack of interest in the new crop of talent?
