I stumbled upon some photos of Ruth Flower a.k.a DJ Mamy Rock while on the Rock the Silver blog. Ruth, a 69 year old DJ living in England is a great example of someone who doesn’t let age restrict her from remaining vital and creative. Check out her story in her own words below!

“I have had a very lively youth, I used to go to balls all the time, I loved to dance, but then came the old age, pension, but above all boredom… I started looking for something more…
One night, my grandson, of whom I’m very close to, celebrated his birthday in a nightclub in London. And he told me that I could join them. When I arrived, the bouncers didn’t let me go inside. It is true that I didn’t really match their usual clients (laughs)… I finely managed to entered… and I was dumbfound…there was such an atmosphere!!! It was so different from the parties I used to go when I was young. There was a real osmosis between the lights and the music, it really drove me!… It made me feel so much younger! This night shattered my view of things but above all the way I saw my life…I had a lot of free time, I was on pension you know… I talked to my grandson about it, he thought I went mad. Then he introduced me to a friend of his, a young French director and producer. We got along from the very beginning and he, with the help of his team, offered to help me becoming a DJ, working on a track, building an image etc… It was really fun!! Now I think that I am ready to make everybody move their ass on the dancefloor (laughs). Indeed, I’d rather sign a contract with a record company than to sign up for the nursing home.”
