"When I was young, I never needed anyone. And making love was just for fun. Those days are gone."

Singer-songwriter Eric Carmen was pushing 30 (28, to be exact) when he went to No. 2 with "All By Myself" in 1976. Today he turns 60, and I wonder how his point of view has changed -- or hasn't. At 40, I can relate to his premature midlife crisis more than ever.

Is it too late?
