R.I.P.: Sir Christopher Lee: Screen legend dies aged 93

Best known for Dracula, Scaramanga, Count Dooku and Saruman… totally unknown for being a metalhead???

A lover of opera, Sir Christopher launched his singing career in the 1990s, with an album of Broadway tunes, including I Stole The Prince from Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers, and Epiphany from Sweeney Todd.

He also enjoyed an unlikely heavy metal career. In 2010, his album Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross won a Spirit of Metal Award from Metal Hammer magazine.

He marked his 92nd birthday by releasing an album of heavy metal cover versions.

Mr. Lee, be barely knew thee.  Here’s his YouTube channel.   Last upload is “Christopher Lee. ‘Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing’ (2014)“. Wow.
