Maybe quietest year is a better title than lazy, partly it's not his own choice, and somebody who still works every now and than at 77 years old isn't lazy anyway ;)

I know that Peter, but compared to most people in their seventies even Jerry has worked harder last couple years than most other people of his age. Of course there is always an exception but as we all know we can't use the exception to make a judgement on the majourity of people. So that's why I think it's more fair to talk about quietest year instead of lazy. I don't think it will happen but, if Jerry ever turns 100 years old and still does 2 shows a year, would we say; damn what a lazy man. I prefer to say; that was quiet year...

Still 2012.

One 4-song performance... I can't see him beating (or worsening) that record unless he retires completely.

Then there's the case of his 79 year old cousin Mickey Gilley, who will turn 80 March 9th, who plays 200 shows a year and still does TV and recording sessions! He's only six months younger than Jerry.

B.B. King was doing that in his late 80s. He really was the hardest working man in show biz.
