Just as there are no “golden years” and “expiration dates” on creating and playing music, we can arrive into music-making anytime. Savanna Coen is 14 and on a mission.
It was Steven Tyler’s birthday on Tuesday and he was (Gasp!) turning 65. Over on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper it was a disastrous effort to turn this into some sort of humorous story about “aging rockstars”. Doesn’t any self-respecting 65 year old WANT to retire? Gag me, as someone once said.
It’s long been traditional for music-makers to, well, MAKE the music into what ever age. That’s why it’s refreshing to see it begin at an early age. Who doesn’t love a prodigy? I also am pleased to say that Savanna understands the history of her favorite predecessors and still, activators.
A real thrill, all the way around. Check out our conversation, below. And the video that first caught my attention. ~Inessa
