I had wondered what the co-creator of the recent Martin Scorsese-Mick Jagger HBO offering Vinyl was doing seemingly dishing dirt on our Glimmer Twins. Cohen had worked for the duo of Marty & Micky in the 90s and the co-creator credit appeared to be his belated going-away prize. Whether it was offered, deserved or seized is very hard to discern when the result is Vinyl.
Call me a cynic or call me politically incorrect for bringing up the age difference. But it exists. Anyone who has a relative or friend in their eighties would be suspicious if their friend or relative announced that they were going to marry someone 25 years younger. Most people aren't interested in marrying someone old enough to be their parent.
While having a grandchild makes a grandparent, it doesn't make us all alike. Yet, most often when we are portrayed by the media or advertisers, we have silver hair, wear glasses and are pleasantly plump or if you are man, you are usually pictured as bald... We don't all sit on the front porch in rocking chairs knitting booties or crocheting sweaters.
