Wow, I was expecting to see a duet with Shatner maybe. :)

That was pretty cool actually.
They all looked like they were having some fun.

I just lost my beloved Granma about a half year ago.
I know how bored she was in those last years.
The only thing that kept her going was her love for music. :D
She and Grandpa had tons of 1st place trophies for winning jitterbug contests back in the day.
She had artheritus (sp?) really bad and couldn't really stand for years - though if you put something like the Stray Cats on -
she's sit on her bed and "dance" to it - actually get all excited about it. Moving her feet around and hoping to the beat.
That always made me smile. :D

Very cool Ric

Interesting to hear him sing "I hope I die before I get old" I wonder if it means they don't think they are old yet. Or, if it means they may look old but they're still young inside. Maybe it means notthing and is just part of the Who lyric :P

Touching story noir.

Thanks for sharing that. Funniest thing I've seen this week.

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.

Terrifying. :shock:

A few more sleeps and I'll be in the choir along with them ..... :(

I've recently taken on a volunteer job driving some of the local 'oldies' to their doctor's appointments, hospital etc. and they'd all fit right in there. The good side of the job is that it's possible for me (at 60) to feel relatively young when comparing myself to my passengers in their 80s and 90s. Must remember to try some Who CDs and see if anybody bops along... :wink:

Puts a whole new slant on "Get back in your Rocking Chair grandma..."

Maybe it is meant to be irony. It certainly has the look of some sort of British public service ad meant to shame those 60 year olds into visiting their 80 and 90 year old parents (particularly the signs that the oldsters hold up in the middle).

This is the first thing I thought of when I read your post.

I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep

I loved that video!

I think it is trying to say that even though they are elderly, can't move very fast, may be in poor health, etc. - they are still the same people they were in their youth. They deserve respect due to them from people younger than them, instead of being forgotten or thought of as just cute.

More power to 'em!

If we're talking about awesome Who covers, check out this version of I Can See for Miles.

Thanks for the lift Ricochet! I hope to have that much fun and talent at that age. What am I talking about? I hope to be that age someday. :wink:
