Respectful Insolence

What do you get when you mix a bunch of octogenarians and nonagenarians with The Who?

You get this:

It’s a band called The Zimmers. Members range in age from 69 to 99. I particularly like the mass instrument smashing at the end of the video. I have to admit, however, to the near irresistable urge to respond to the lyric “Hope I die before I get old” with “Too late!”

Even so, I hope I can still rock if I make it to my 80s or 90s.

    Zimmer, presumably from ‘Zimmer Frame’, the English term for a walker.

    Wow, something to look foward to 30 or 40 years down the track.

    Oh, c’mon, the best frame was the last one.

    Regarding the last frame, I wonder where he picked that up. The English version of that gesture involves two fingers.
