    I don't think there's any reason why older guys can't play in clubs, there's no age limit and no reason why you won't have the skills or music taste when you are older (the opposite in fact).

    However, how easy is it to break in to the scene, get gigs, make connections if you are older but don't have a track record? Are there any examples of DJs "breaking through" when they are 40+
    This is the rub-older DJ's need to have the heritage of being there 'back in the day' as a clubbier, at least - I'd say it would be impossible to start post 40+ if you were never part of the scene originally
