    Over 90 years old and has released TWO metal albums and an EP? You'd think he'd have peaked in his career after having acted in hundreds of movies, but no, he's still doing movies, and in recent years he's now a heavy metal musician. There's no stopping this man, you go Christopher Lee, you magnificent human being!
    There should be an award named after Christopher Lee for doing exceptional badass stuff in your 90's.
    I'm not so much into his music, although I am always excited to hear what he has to offer. Mr.Lee is a true inspiration to me. Despite his age, he's still going very strong and hasn't lost his wits. What an individual.
