Turning 50 in 2012

I turned 50 this year, along with some well-known musicians and bands. While the folks below are now eligible to join AARP, age is not slowing them down and most of them had a very successful 2012.
Flea and Anthony Kiedis
In addition to turning 50, their band The Red Hot Chili Peppers was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. They have also been touring to promote their album released last year, I'm With You.

Axl Rose
Guns n' Roses was also inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, but Axl made the news for his decision to boycott the induction ceremony.

Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2012.

Jon Bon Jovi
Jon Bon Jovi performed in the 121212 concert to raise money for Hurricane Sandy. His song, "Not Running Anymore" was nominated for a Golden Globe this month.

Mike Ness
Social Distortion is touring to promote an album released last year, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes.

The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones performed a few big events this year to mark their 50th year together.

The Chieftains
I have always wanted to experience a live Chieftains performance. I finally got the chance the year we both turned 50!
