Inge Ginsberg

Watch A Documentary On A 96-Year-Old ‘Death Metal Grandma’


96-year-old Inge Ginsberg has found a peculiar calling very late in life. Though currently hailed as the ‘Death Metal Grandma’, her earlier years saw her surviving the holocaust and go on to find a career in songwriting in Hollywood in the 1950s with her husband at the time, writing songs later made famous by Dean Martin & Nat King Cole. She also spent time as a journalist, a writer—and more recently—the singer of a metal band.

Below you can watch a music video she filmed back in 2015 while appearing on European talent shows while a newly shared piece on her from the New York Times tells the tale of her incredible journey. You can also watch the New York Times‘ video documentary of her life below:
