Listen To This



I found this great video while looking around on YouTube and found some background information on a site called Time Goes By. Ronni Bennett, the site author, explains:

"A group of about 40 elders, ranging in age from 78 to 99 and calling themselves The Zimmers, have recorded The Who’s tune, My Generation, at the historic Abbey Road studio in London. The video is one of the latest hits on YouTube. Lead singer, 90-year-old Alf Caretta, told the BBC:

“I can't believe this is happening. For me to have recorded a song in the same studio as the Beatles is just so exciting. I feel like the whole experience has brought me back to life. I was stuck in a rut and now I feel alive again.”

Hope you all enjoy!

Cool. And I bet if they'd looked a little harder, they could have found musicians of that generation, too. (Almost my generation.)

Wish it were in synch, though.

I hope you've seen the young at heart!
