Some folks don't age well

I'm looking up videos of Van Morrison, and that poor guy hasn't aged well.  He hadn't aged well in the 90's either.  He sounded like a mafia guy trying to do beatnik style poetry on "Moondance".

It's jarring to hear, after listening to it from the recordings in the 70's.  I know his voice won't be the same, but dang. 

Jackson Browne (even though he's a massive hippy) still manages to pull off a decent rendition of his hits.  Or at least, he did the last time I saw him, which was a while ago, so as of right now today your mileage may vary.  "Running on Empty" still sounds like the same song, not a spoken-word homage.
