You know you're old when...

I was reading the Nashville Scene last night and was perusing the upcoming shows at the Wildhorse Saloon. It's old news now that they don't book primarily country acts anymore. The typical act is the rock that I first listened to when I was a young teenager: Vince Neil, Night Ranger, Styx, etc.

Anyway, I was looking at the ad and noticed a sponsor for one band that made me look twice. Most of the bands were sponsored by Budweiser or Bud Lite; no big surprise there. Foreigner, however, famous for such big radio hits as "Jukebox Hero," "Urgent," and "Cold As Ice" is touring as sponsored by none other than AARP. I wish I was joking.
