It has been proven time and again, that age is just a number. And when it comes to the music business, you don’t see many of music’s elderstatemen/women on the pop charts, but that doesn’t mean that the only rocking they do, is sitting in a rocking chair. Here is what New Music Express determined as a list of the “Top 25 Grandparents Who Still Rock”.

  1. B.B. King: at 88, B.B. king has, ready for this, 50 grand kids and 8-10 great-grand kids
