Still Got It! Musicians Over 70 Who Keep On Rocking

Last week, the great beatnik bard Bob Dylan gave his first interview in three years to AARP, the American Association of Retired Persons' magazine — a peculiar choice until you consider that the AARP publication actually has the largest magazine circulation in the U.S.

The interview proves, if it's even necessary, that at age 73 Dylan remains as cool as ever. Which had us here at Worldcrunch's Paris HQ wondering which international artists over 70 still got it. Paul McCartney? Nah, too cheesy. Little Richard? Too freaky!

Below is our top 10 playlist. Who did we miss?

Bob Dylan (U.S., age 73) — "Restless Farewell"

Paolo Conte (Italy, age 78) — "Sparring Partner"

Joan Manuel Serrat (Spain, age 71) — "Paraules De Amor"

Keith Richards (UK, age 71) — "Can't Be Seen"

Gilberto Gil (Brazil, age 72) — "Você e Eu"

Aretha Franklin (U.S., age 72) — "Rolling in the Deep/Ain't No Mountain"

Leonard Cohen (Canada, age 80) — "Everybody Knows"

Tina Turner (U.S., age 75) — "Amazing Grace"

Jacques Dutronc (France, age 71) — "L'Opportuniste"

Willie Nelson (U.S., age 81) — "Band of Brothers"
