Leonard Cohen, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson all made their debut albums when they were in their 30s.

James Mercer (The Shins) was in his 30's when they released their 1st album, as was Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand.

age ain't nothing but a number.

HELP!! my Drawmer 1960 has developed a hum...

just that, really. i had it serviced a while back, worked fine, and recently moved studios; plugged it back in, and it's got a loud hum on both channels.
