Louis had varicose veins in his legs when he was older, but he kept on performing. one time, he was back-stage wrapping bandages around his lower legs in preparation for his show. someone saw him and asked why he was doing that. his response: "I've got these VERY CLOSE veins."

Often, loosing ones lip is the result of a layoff from playing and 
practicing at an advanced age. As one gets older you have to keep 
practicing to maintain muscle tone, elasticity and endurance and 'lip" is 
all about those things. Doc Cheatham once opined to me that the reason 
Louis Armstrong did not play much as he aged was that he got too sick to 
keep practicing.

My dad is in his late 80's. He was a #1 classical listener. Does not at all 
anymore. Has a good sized collection of 33's and a pretty thorough knowledge 
of what was and was not the best. Almost all lost now. 

Lou Breese had to quit his trumpet when he got older. His daughter tells me 
he "lost his lip."
