Mamy Rock

"Old people don't have to stay at home. If you want to do something, you really can."

Or at least so says Ruth Flowers, aka DJ Mamy Rock, a 69 year old British DJ who performs in clubs all over the world!

"It started really when my grandson had a birthday party ... they always have a little disco, don't they, after the party,"

"I went along quite late and the gentlemen at the door said, 'I don't think you want to go in there, Madame'. And I said, 'Well I rather think I do',"

"I went in and it was very noisy and the lights were flashing, but there was an awful lot of energy and joy."

Her grandson introduced her to a French producer who spent four years teaching her to spin and helping her to develop her own sound. What at first started as a joke evolved into a serious second career, complete with Flowers' own sense of style.
