Christopher Lee joins metal band


8th March 2010

Of course he does.

Today the worlds of cinema and music came a little closer, as we learned that Christopher Lee - he of Star Wars, Lord Of The Rings, Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond and Police Academy: Mission To Moscow fame - has joined a metal band. (*tosses back greasy hair*)

Lee, 87, has teamed up with metal outfit Charlemagne for a concept album named By The Sword And The Cross, which he narrates and sings on. Watch the clip below and you'll see him singing a little ditty about shedding the blood of 400 Saxon men, which can't be healthy at his age.

Check out the band's MySpace page if you're into your octogenarian rock or just want to see something to make you sad.
