Middle Age Rocks!
(Reuters) Middle-aged musicians who have neither burned out nor faded away -- yet may be some years past their creative peaks -- are pulling in the real money in today's topsy-turvy music industry.

They may not produce as many chart-topping songs as they once did, but with album sales flagging due to Internet piracy and competition from other entertainment outlets, they pull in revenue streams from merchandise, concerts and books.
