time to retire?

Post by Lex_Osk » Sat Mar 11, 2006 5:21 am

do you think some dj's should retire? if you were a dj,when would you pack your decks and retire? does it have something to do with age or skills? some dj's decide to retire very young, but most of the "legends" (reffering to ones who contributed in making and developing electronic music) are mostly over 40 and still working their asses off in studios or behind the decks, for instance francois kevorkian is 52 and he's still one of the biggest names in the world of electronic music, dj bone is distributing new mixes (attacks) every week,has a debut album and enough tracks for 20 ep's to release,and so on. i know those are non-mnml dj's but im just making examples. so,whats your opinion about retiring as a dj or producer?

why stop when you can throw private parties!
Drop the idea of becoming someone else, because you are already a masterpiece.
