Youth is no guarantee against fogey-ishness.

Well, that's true. I just looked it up and it specified that it's not necessarily old but "old-fashioned or conservative in attitude or tastes." So yes, one could be a fogey-ish youth.

In this case, I think it was that the guy called "boomer" as an insult had compared an older rapper to a newer rapper -- something like that. The term "boomer" didn't mean they were literally pining for the good old days of the Beatles.

Kenny Rogers is Dead at the Age of 81




Kenneth Ray Rogers (August 21, 1938 March 20, 2020) was an American singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, and entrepreneur. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013.  Though he was most successful with country audiences, Rogers charted more than 120 hit singles across various music genres, topped the country and pop album charts for more than 200 individual weeks in the United States alone, and sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

He acted in a variety of movies and television shows, most notably the title roles in Kenny Rogers as The Gambler and the MacShayne series for The NBC Mystery Movie, and the 1982 feature film Six Pack.  He was a co-founder of the restaurant chain Kenny Rogers Roasters in collaboration with former Kentucky Fried Chicken CEO John Y. Brown Jr.. Although the stores closed in the United States, they are still a fixture in Asia.

I wonder if he thought about how that often song would be quoted in his obituary/ies.
