Music DVD of the year?

Wire

A bunch of 50 year-olds. Two of them wearing glasses. Two of them bald, and it's not quite clear whether it's for fashion or biological reasons. The lead guitar player, aged 58, grey-haired, is totally stoic. The singer jumps around the stage like a 20 year-old. Without looking ridiculous. Exquisite noise punk. Wonderful.

This looks like Eric Clapton; I'm not sure about the guitar player. I saw EC at Staples Center a few years ago; they brought a chair out by the second song and he didn't jump around much. A hot show in L.A. right now is Bob Dylan and Merle Haggard. Who cares how many birthdays you've had if your're still putting out quality?
