AGT Metal Grandpa Living The Dream With Drowning Pool!

Metal Grandpa

Dreams are just part of what make the human experience so unique. No matter who you are, you can aim for any dream, hope, or goal that you want. Whatever comes to mind, you should be able to go for it. Well, one older gentleman is proving to all of us that dreams have no age limit. John Hetlinger, an 82-year-old retired aerospace engineer, recently appeared on the hit TV show America’s Got Talent. While many contestants, past and present, have shocked American audiences for years, few have been able to elicit such a positively surprised response as this charismatic grandpa. For his audition, Hetlinger performed the hit song “Bodies” by Drowning Pool. In case you missed it, you can watch the video below…

Now THAT is how you make waves with talent! As if all of the excitement of being on television and in turn a social media hit wasn’t enough, however, it seems that we will be seeing a lot more of Hetlinger. In fact, according to TMZ, he will be joining Drowning Pool at this year’s Chicago Open Air music festival! The band has even said that they will be treating John to all the alcohol he wants, just like a true musician. Following their set, he will also be joining the band at their signing booth. Here’s to you, John! \m/
