LOL. I was going to post this. The Strolling Bones......He can still strut around a stage.
I would say the Who (or the Two) are still on tour but they mostly sit now.

On the PBS special about the Beadles, I was impressed with Ringo Starr. He was moving around the stage like he was in his 20's. Still plays good drums, too.

Beatrice Wood (March 3, 1893 – March 12, 1998) was an American artist and studio potter - she caught my attention when she was about 96 and being interviewed by Diane Sawyer. Sawyer asked her "to what to you attribute your longevity?"

With a twinkle in her eye, this awesome woman replied:

"Chocolates and younger men."

I LOVE her and want to be her when I grow up!

I'm far more inspired by the not-so-famous:
Aging With Attitude: Inked Rebel Helen Lambin
Aging With Attitude: Barbara Beskind, Designer
Aging with Attitude:91-year-old Marathon Runner Harriette Thompson

Reading about people like Thompson inspired me to run my first 5K at age 64.
Reading about people like Lambin makes me regret that I didn't get a tattoo to commemorate it.

edit to add: This is pretty cool, too: You're Never Too Old to Pose as a Pin-Up
