Not too old to DJ! Not too old to party!

June 12, 2007 8:31 PM

At the Armin van Buuren gig Friday, some punk asked Simon in a super-sarcastic way, “How old are you?!” Simon’s the same age as me (b. 1974, year of the tiger) and I’d like to state that if some of our favourite DJs are around our age, and are still spinning then we are not too old to party.

(Birth years gathered from their official sites and Wikipedia)

Incidentally, everyone on that list except for Eddie Halliwell is from the Netherlands. It must be something special in the water over there. And except for Tiësto – he last came to Australia in 2004 to Sydney/Melbourne, I’ve seen them all live here in Perth.

Spin spin sugar! 🙂

    hee hee – glad that you got that Sneaker Pimps reference. Regarding the old ah-peks, for one I would never be wearing any of that. Heheh. And if I start balding, I’d shave it all off instead of leaving a bald patch or worse – comb over. Wahaha!

    pps: really?!? I’m so honoured! 😀

    clara: I don’t think you’d forget, but I do know ppl go through phases. So perhaps, you’ve passed it?

    juji: thanks for the additions! Benefits to growing older – for one, I seem to be enjoying clubbing now more than ever. 🙂

    I’ve seen Tiesto, a few years ago (I think it was 2004 actually), at a rave. And yeah, usually the top DJs are in their 30s, many of those guys have been around since the late 80s/early 90s.
    definitely never too old to party, I say! Keep partying on and one day we’ll have to go dance it up together!

    ^ Dabido, cool down 😀

    We won’t give up! Well, until our bodies DO give up on us 😀 Tiesto has really made a name for himself in the recent years. I even saw his name in a United Nations website somewhere – he’s like an ambassador of goodwill or something.

    So yeah, that alone should prompt us and remind us that noooo we’re not too old to parrrttteeeyyy 😀
