For Those About To Think They're Too Old To Rock
 

Blabbermouth.net:
82-year-old John Hetlinger, who became a viral video sensation last month when he belted out the (2001) DROWNING POOL classic "Bodies" on the NBC series "America's Got Talent", joined the band...to perform the song at the Chicago Open Air festival...

Hetlinger...was a Navy pilot...a minister and then an aerospace engineer...who worked on a team that made repairs to the Hubble telescope...(He) got hooked on karaoke after singing during talent shows on cruise ships in the '90s.

DROWNING POOL guitarist CJ Pierce said he first heard about Hetlinger's performance when family and friends starting texting him about it. "...Jasen Moreno is our (singer) right now. But if he doesn't work out, we always know we've got John on the back burner."

Despite being a huge rock radio smash, (Bodies) was removed from radio playlists for a while...in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

2018 Update
 
Metalheads Escape Old Age Home To Join 75,000 at Concert Festival
...(T)wo elderly German men escaped from their nursing home...to attend the Wacken Open Air festival.

The nursing home contacted the police after it discovered that the men were missing...(They) were...found at 3 a.m. at the heavy metal festival, which is celebrating its 29th anniversary...

(It) is sold out, with more than 75,000 metal fans in attendance. Headliners include JUDAS PRIEST, DANZIG, HATEBREED, IN FLAMES, RUNNING WILD and ARCH ENEMY...

Police escorted the men home with the help of a taxi...

Actually we shouldn't laugh, since we're ALL going to end up doing that before we know it! And maybe the nursing home can set up an internet feed where they can watch videos of concerts.
