Move over, Rolling Stones – there’s a new senior guitarist in town! Mike and the band might be in their 70s and rocking solid, but Bob Wood here is 81 years old and still going strong on the guitar.

The senior citizen from Nashville, Tennessee blew the minds of the employees at a local guitar shop and subsequently the minds of everyone who has access to the World Wide Web, when the shop, confusingly named British Audio Service uploaded a video of Bob playing an impressive version of the standard “B same Mucho” in their salon.

The video racked over 2 million views, and the Internet can’t keep its mouth shut about the frail musician. They wanted to know everything about him, and Wood’s immediate family and friends were more than happy to oblige in the comments.

Wood grew up playing music in the Shenandoah Valley, and was signed on as a regular performer at Jamboree USA in Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1970, where he performed for 10 years. He was named Entertainer of the Year by Eastern States Country Music Inc., and in 2007, he was inducted into the Southern Legends Country Music Hall of Fame. Wood cut several albums during his career, including this ice-cold piece of ’70s-era cool, Bob Wood Plays It Cool.

Keep on rocking, Bob!
