As most people know, Sir Christopher Lee passed away on the 7th of this month, at the age of 93.
His career was wide-ranging, and other people have spoken about him and his achievements. Other people have more in-depth knowledge of his roles and his history, and I have no real reason to do some kind of summary of his Wikipedia article. I’ve loved his acting – particularly in The Wicker Man – but so few people know about his musical pursuits.
Yes, Christopher Lee sang metal songs. Power metal, symphonic metal, whatever.
And he loved making metal versions of Christmas carols. You can get the 2014 Christmas carol right here.
Sir had some pipes! And it was so obvious he was having SO much fun. I am so sad that there will be no more metal carols to share with my wonderful Lee fanatic friend.
I will miss you, Christopher Lee.
