    There will be a generation of people who will still like this music and maybe will carry on liking it till they get old. But how old is too old to go out to Drum and Bass events?
    Will they have over 30s only drum and bass events in the future? Will you be sneered and joked on at a drum and bass scene when you are 50 because you liked the music since the beginning and wanted to experience it again? How would you treat someone that age if they were raving it up at that age at your nightclub? Other countries seem to mix that age gap with club music one hour and songs the next and the two mix okay, not sure if the UK can cope with that.

    Ahem ahem, the original junglists are all over 30.

    Some ravers are younger than the music.

    At what age should we stop going to dnb shows?

    We'll know when we get there.

    How about, "Why does this music stick with people as they get older?"

    I am not that old, but i don't see myself out-growing the drum patterns of the mid-90s anytime soon. Of course, Percussion itself is the foundation of many more genres than just this one...so can it be outgrown? Considering the name is "drums w/bass".

    So when "older" people are seen at shows these days, they want to hear the rythm of the drum and the bass, loud. ( "How to treat them?" wtf? )

    Shows to me that the genre as a whole can no longer be considered just "club music"

    Wouldn't it be kinda funny if you think about it now, when our generation gets older and we're all 60 year olds, and we're still rinsin dnb and dubstep and whatever. Because isn't it like that what you mostly listen in you're teens and 20's you'll end up listening for the rest of your lives. Kinda like all the geezers still dig rock n roll the most because that was the shit when they were young. So after 40 or 50 years all the youngsters are rinsin the music of the future and go saying things like "geez i had to visit my grandparents again and listen to that fucking wobble all weekend"
