The oldest and greatest rock band in the world - meet The Zimmers and their amazing cover of The Who’s “My Generation”.
Lead singer Alf is 90 - it’s quite something when he sings “I hope I die before I get old”. And he’s not the oldest - there are 99 and 100-year-olds in the band!
The Zimmers will feature in a BBC TV documentary being aired in May 2007. Documentary-maker Tim Samuels has been all over Britain recruiting isolated and lonely old people - those who can’t leave their flats or who are stuck in rubbish care homes.

The song is released on 28.05.07 and coincides with the TV show ‘Power to the People’ which started it all! You can buy the CD from Tescos, Woolworths, HAV and Virgin Megastores as well as all good internet download sites.

If I was that age I hope I’d be able to powerslide across the stage.


Whether I was able to get up without help is quite another matter.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Great stuff!


Dan, waiting for them to start smashing their guitars

PS:  It is getting to be a bit silly, or actually embarrassing, when I see recent clips of Mick Jagger on stage
