The Zimmers

Well it just goes to prove you are NEVER too old for Rock and Roll. With a lead singer of a mere 90 and others in the 'band' at 100. a cover of The Who's My Generation is making an assault on the pop charts this week.

Eric Whitty

The band recorded the single in teh Abbey Road studios, even recreating eth famous Beatles zebra crossing picture above. They are looking to highlight the plight of pensioners, many of whom are copped up in homes, with only daytime TV to watch. Many are also confided to their home and many have not been out for several years. A BBC TV program The Great Granny Chart Invasion is screened tonight at 21:00 on BBC TWO.

Glastonbudget Festival

It had to happen sooner or later. The rise of the number of tribute bands, only matched by the rise in festival ticket prices and the difficulty in getting hold of one.

With bands like Pink Fraud, Jamm, Oasish and Guns 2 Roses, it certainly seems the fans got a budget treat this weekend.
