My Generation

GO ZIMMERS!

Because this website so often contains very serious, depressing stories, I occasionally send items of light relief.

Here is the latest pop sensation, the Zimmers, who released their first single on May 28. The grandfather of a friend of mine in London is in the band -- a band which has a combined age of over 3000 (in other words even more than the Rolling Stones).

Their debut song, is great and heading to number 1! Watch it for some fun...



The lead singer is 90-years-old, the lead guitarist is 83, and the backing chorus include pensioners aged 99 and 100.

They are planning a world tour next year.

The Zimmers’ “My Generation” was recorded at the legendary studio two at Abbey Road, London, where the Beatles recorded many of their hits.

For previous videos and items of light relief on this list, see here.
