The man who sang this is 67 now:
People try to put us d-down (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

I hope I die before I get old (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
Lead singer of the Who, Roger Daltrey is sounding a bit like a conservative these days:

‘Everyone knows it can’t carry on, but you can’t touch anything in the NHS because the nurses are in their trench, the doctors are in their trench, the unions are in their trench – it’s the First World War.’
A few more years and we’ll have him!
