For the love of music
Their hair may be graying, their waistlines expanding and gold records a distant dream, but they play as enthusiastically as those half their age. While holding down full-time jobs, many local, middle-aged musicians such as John Hill play for the pure joy of it.
“We are all part-time musicians,” said Hill, a tech for a propane gas company who has been drumming for 48 years. “We do this for fun on the weekends.”
Gary Hiland, a barber in his day job, has been playing music for 40 years. Two years ago, he formed The Relics, a DeKalb-based oldies band, and says he hopes to keep playing as long as he can.
