I agreed with most of what you wrote until this... I think maybe the other guys here can come up with a lot of examples. What about all the old blues and jazz artists?

Age has nothing whatsoever to do with artistic talent and creativity. The interest in current trends by young people doesn't really have much to do with how great music creation can be at any age. Energy for touring and maintaining that kind of life is another story. Life does get in the way, but it doesn't mean creativity somehow ends.

Well, it may not be an age problem but more the length of time an artist has worked.
For the sake of this thread let's limit the discussion to musicians.
Take some of the greatest, randomly to name a few: Bowie, Paul McCartney, James Brown, Miles Davis, Brian Wilson, Joni Mitchell...
I am sorry to say that none of them released anything that could match their greatest work past the age of 50, if not earlier. That's a fact.

add to that...the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen...the list goes on and on.
