Ruth Flowers ist 69 Jahre alt und legt in den Clubs von Paris auf. Nach all den Rentnern doing Punkrock (The Zimmers, Young @ Heart) endlich mal eine Dame mit schlohweißem Haar und runzligsten Runzeln, die die Wheels of Steel bedient, die Clubkultur hat ja sowieso ein viel zu niedriges Durchschnittsalter.

Ihr Youtube-Channel ist voller DJ-Gold, hier ihre Seite auf Myspace, hier ihre Website („I'd rather sign a contract with a record company than to sign up for the nursing home!“, hihihi), Snip von Reuters:

Clad in her leopard-skin shrug and dark sunglasses, 69-year-old Ruth Flowers has conquered French clubland from the Cannes Film Festival to the top Paris nightspots with a mix of old-school hits, electrobeat and bling-bling style.

"It started really when my grandson had a birthday party ... they always have a little disco, don't they, after the party," Flowers told Reuters, lounging on a white sofa in a Paris hotel in a green satin bomber jacket and trademark shades contrasting with her white hair.

"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'," she said.
