Grandma Drummer

"Grandma Drummer" is the name affectionately given to the lady who comes into Coalition Drum Shop in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Now she's gone viral on the internet! Sixty-three-year-old Mary Hvisda started playing drums at age 15, and has played in bands since she was 16 years old -all the way to 1990.

“I couldn't find no other bands to play with, and then I did quit,” said Hvizda.

Soon after, Hvizda sold her last drum set, but she never really lost her love for playing.

“I still kind of like to go to the music store and play a drum set, and then that's it,” said Hvizda. “My music urge has been satisfied.”

The drum store is giving Mary a set of electronic drums, which will be delivered on Monday. After all, she's not nearly as old as most of The Rolling Stones -and they're still playing. Link -via Metafilter
