Grandma Drummer Rocks The Internet: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The woman known as Grandma Drummer has become a viral star thanks to her unexpected drumming skills but it turns out the woman behind the YouTube video that`s been viewed over two million times is not even a grandmother.

`She`s not married, not a grandma and doesn`t have kids,` Dustin Hackworth, the manager of Coalition Drum Shop, told ABCNews.com of Mary Hvizda.

What Hvizda, 63, of La Crosse, Wis., does have is a past life as a drummer for locally popular bands that then gave way to a more routine life as a newspaper deliverywoman."

Mary Hvizda, better known as "Grandma Drummer", didn`t know YouTube from a hole in the ground a few days ago, but now she`s a YouTube star.

In her younger days Hvizda was a drummer for an all-girl rock band, but recently she`s hit tough economic times. Grandma Drummer had to sell her drum set to make ends meet, but the music store where she worked her magic is giving her a free drum kit.

Thanks Grandma Rocker for teaching us that you`re never too old to rock out! You are an inspiration to millions of young people, and we hope that you never stop banging on those drums.
