    Oldest Rock Band In The World - The Zimmers Perform "My Generation"

    You have got to check out this music video of the oldest and greatest rock band in the world. No. It's not The Rolling Stones. It's The Zimmers and their wonderful cover of The Who's "My Generation".

    Alf at 90 years old is the lead singer. 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 telecast this May. 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 finale of the show is this group of lonely old people coming together to stick it back to the society that's cast them aside - by forming a rock troupe and trying to storm into the pop charts.

    Some massive names from the pop world have thrown their weight behind The Zimmers. The song was produced by Mike Hedges (Cure, Dido, U2), the video was shot by Geoff Wonfor (Band Aid, Beatles Anthology), and it was recorded in the legendary Beatles studio 2 at Abbey Road.

    Look out for the single being released on May 21 - with proceeds going to a good cause.
