But Music Friday must go on.
I don't know how I missed this...but it was posted on YouTube before many of us knew there was a YouTube. Yet, it has stood the test of time.
They call themselves The Zimmers...and nine years ago, they posted this cover of the Who's My Generation. With a then-90 year old lead singer and a chorus with a collective age of 3000 years recorded at Abbey Road, the video is a sensational statement of the timeless impact of rock...even as they intone the line "hope I die before I get old." Because...they're not.
Years later, a much depleted version of the group appeared on Britain's Got Talent. One could easily imagine so many of the stars of the original video having passed on to their next world.
RIP...you rocked well.
As witnessed by over 6 million people.
