Before last Thursday, when ol' <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/05/26/books/you-re-strange-but-don-t-change.html?pagewanted=all&amp;src=pm" target="_blank">Shakey</a> and his golden garage band Crazy Horse stomped through my local amphitheater, the last thing I'd thought I'd be excited about was a bunch of guys hovering around 70, playing loud rock and roll into the night.
