An aging rock star

I’m the lead singer
Who’s still in demand
With two musicians
From my first band

I’m in my sixties
And still have my voice
Hitting the high notes
I have no choice

A sell out crowd
Of every age
I hear them screaming
While I'm on stage

In the earlier years
Of our rock n’ roll band
Our wild behavior
Would get out of hand

But when I got older
I settled down
No drinking or drugs
Or fooling around

I raised a family
And they were aware
Their famous dad
With fans they’d share

And now my grandson
Has started a band
He wants to be famous
It's what he's planned

He used my name
To launch his career
He doesn't use drugs
He only drinks beer

A new generation
A grandson admired
The talent he has
From me he acquired
