Bass legend Tony is 70 . . . but he will not slow down or hand over his licence to rock

MEN OF LAW: Levin Minnemann Rudess — from left, Tony Levin, Marco Minnemann and Jordan Rudess.
Hitting 70 hasn’t seen Tony struggle with his chosen profession. “When you love doing something, it doesn’t ‘cost’ you in terms of energy,” he says. “Performing is easy as ever. It’s the travelling that gets harder to hold up to as you age. “I’m very lucky to have my good health, so it’s not an issue for me at this time — but I realise, of course, that it won’t always be that way.” Tony has a good relationship with his brother. “Pete is the older brother and was always extremely supportive and is so to this day,” he says. “We haven’t performed together too often. We toured a bit last year and will again when schedules permit.”
