Dear Generation X: Nothing Will Make You Feel Older Than This Photo

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 2, 2014 | Comments ()


Uh, Happy FIFTIETH Birthday, Adam Duritz. You’re now apparently entitled to senior discounts and special AAA rates through AARP. Congratulations. You’re officially one year younger than Wilford Brimley when he starred in Cocoon.


The man is going to rock those dreads to his grave, and he’s probably going to go through a few more ridiculously hot women before he gets there.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Mr. Jones and me...look for an affordable medicare plan.

  • HelloLongBeach

    He has yet to "rock" those dreads.

  • oilybohunk7

    I worked at a hotel they stayed at, he went to the hotel bar with those stupid dreads, wearing red leather pants and then told the hostess "Put me somewhere quiet, I'm really famous and I don't want to be bothered." You're in Kalamazoo, Michigan, if you don't want to stand out maybe trade in the red leather pants for jeans.

    My mom hates, HATES, Duritz and I was on the phone with my dad telling him what a dick he was and my dad said "Oh wow, they invited you out to go party!" because my mom was with him and he wanted to mess with her. She was horrified.

  • logan

    Hey I live not far from Kalamazoo mi. It's a teensy world.

  • oilybohunk7

    It is nice to see people from my area!

  • Sandra Archibald Ikushima

    Never understood the appeal of this band then, puzzled by their longevity now.

  • Wilma

    I was going to say that I won't feel old until Eddie Vedder turns 50, but I just found out that he will be in december.

  • Danar the Barbarian

    I was going to say, that can't be that long now. My marker was when Robert Smith turned 50 ... and that was five years ago.

  • Dulce et Banana

    An XKCD post a few weeks ago contained another disturbing fact: the average age of first time grandparents in the US is younger than Keanu Reeves.

  • Whoa.

  • Dulce et Banana

    Sad Keanu indeed!

  • Marc Greene

    He will always be this to me:

  • F'mal DeHyde

    He looks like Saul Rubinek with a dyed beard and a bad wig.

  • Berry

    The spambots have really been working over-time lately. They should unionize or something. Get more reasonable hours.

  • Todd Sikkema

    The only thing I remember about this guy is that he and his band played at a local concert venue when Counting Crows had just begun to be successful. The opening act was awful and the audience responded was less-than enthusiastic applause as well as some booing. Duritz came out, said he was disgusted with how the audience had treated the opening act, informed them that Counting Crows would not be playing for them, and walked off the stage. End of concert.

  • Wrestling Fan

    Sounds like he did you a favor...

  • Fabius_Maximus


  • BWeaves

    Yeah, I've never heard of him.

  • Berry

    Neither have I. But I do know one thing: white people dreads are rarely a good idea.

  • BlackRabbit

    Me neither. Perhaps they need to stop mumbling so much then I can make it out.

  • Guest

    Damn…this makes me feel old and I'm not technically Generation X.

  • Guest
  • Pfffffft. Millennials, maybe, but not GenX. The GenX moment came when Johnny Rotten turned 50.

    Get the fuck off my lawn.

  • tomc

    I knew Wilford Brimley. I took in his movies; I watched his ads. You, sir, are not now, and, given your terminal smirk, will never be a Wilford Brimley.

  • I don't feel old, and neither does he, apparently. But ask me again after I turn 40 at the end of November ;)

  • karen

    Won't be 40. I will say (as do several of my friends) 46 was when we all started saying...when the hell did we get old? Maybe you can make it to 50?

  • googergieger

    I don't know. My balls make me feel pretty old.

  • carrie

    His hair is amazing

  • AvaLehra

    Hahahaha! Totally not funny. I keep getting called "ma'am" now and I'm all like, "Kid, I was born in '72. I used to slam dance, and play LPs, have ox blood Doc Martens, and remember when Al Jourgensen used to fake an English accent. Don't call me ma'am."

  • The Replicant Brooke

    "I wore Olive Oyl dresses over jeans with combat boots, kid, don't call me ma'am."

  • Jormis

    "Heeeeyyy! You got to work for love!"

  • Matty Fresh

    Counting crows' feet.

  • You win the internet today.

  • e jerry powell

    I'm dead now.

  • Them dreads is a wig.

  • manting

    I met him in a bar in New Orleans in the 90's and he was wearing fake dreads/dread extensions and he did not like it when we mocked him for it.

  • Ha. I heard they were extensions even in the band's prime, but now they're apparently a full-on wig. I may be embellishing here, but I think it's actually his father's old wig with dread extensions woven into it. It's google-able in any case.
