Christopher Lee’s Birthday Present To The World: More F*cking Metal!
From Rolling Stone.
Proving once again that Christopher Lee is more awesome than you’ll ever hope to be, for his 91st birthday (yep, 91st), Sauron collaborated with Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner for his second heavy metal album based on the life of Charlemagne.
“The first Charlemagne album is metal, of course, but what I sang was more symphonic,” Lee, who is best known for his role as Saruman in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, told The Guardian. “Now on the second one, The Omens of Death, it is 100 percent heavy metal. I’ve done my bits and pieces, and they are heavy metal. I’m not screaming or anything like that, but it is definitely heavy metal.”
What’s your great grandfather doing again? I thought so.
Not to be outdone, Peter O’Toole is rumored to be teaming up with a homeless violin player he woke up next to in the subway for a spoken word tribute to Lawrence of Arabia.
