Curt Kirkwood, the 43-year-old former front man for Phoenix’s pioneering Meat Puppets currently doing vocal duties with Eyes Adrift, doesn’t sound happy about being a 40+ rocker in today’s music scene. “If you’re getting old, you’re getting old,” he tells the Phoenix New Times. “This is America. We sh** on our old people here. We sh** on our failures. And we sh** on our heroes as soon as we can find a place to sh** on. The rock ‘n’ roll thing is like, go ahead and die. And it’s not leave a good-looking corpse,’ it’s like leave a corpse for everyone to sh** on.’ Here you go. Sh** on my fu**ing dead body, you bunch of cock-a-roaches.”
