Care home residents recreate classic album covers during lockdown


- Advertisment -

THESE care home residents just love to keep on rockin’.

Instead of moping around during lockdown they recreated some hit album covers – causing a Twitter meltdown in the process.

The residents of Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, North London, loved taking part in the project organised by activities coordinator Robert Speker.

Robert, 41, who masterminded the fun shoots, said: “We took lockdown seriously. None of the residents can see their families.

“And my job is to keep them amused. I thought the residents would have fun doing this.

“They are always quite game for doing something different.”

Twitter has gone wild for the fun take on the iconic album covers –  totting up over 15,000 retweets since Robert posted them yesterday.

User Jolie posted: “These are so moving. Reminds me of my 97-year-old grandmother telling me that on the inside she was still 18.”

Here are the old rockers’ covers, proving they’re still young at heart.
