Anybody feeling old today? You won’t after seeing these videos
The Zimmers are a British band, thought to have the oldest members in the world: the lead singer, Alf, is 90, and the oldest member, Buster, is 102. They take their name from the Zimmer frame (the British name for a walking frame).
The band was created as a feature in a BBC Television documentary, which was first broadcast on 28 May 2007. The feature of forming the band and recording a single was intended to give a voice to the feelings of isolation and imprisonment suffered by the elderly.
The Zimmers’ logo is a parody of The Beatles’ logo, as is the image of them walking across Abbey Road. In September 2008, the band released its first full-length album ‘Lust for Life’, featuring cover versions of songs by Eric Clapton, The Beatles and Frank Sinatra.
Here are just two of their videos:
