Morning Music - The Zimmers

The Zimmers cover The Who's 'My Generation'.

The following quote is from the YouTube site I pulled this from:

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 be featured 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!

Check out their MySpace site to find out more about the band here.
