Saruman can't sing!


Bless him, 90+ year old actor Christopher Lee (Saruman to this generation, Dracula to those a little older) has released a heavy-metal album. The clip above has samples. I know singing ability is considered something of an optional extra when it comes to metal music, but I think it not unfair comment to suggest that Mr Lee's efforts are closer to a beautifully intoned spoken word piece than singing ... rap that you can understand the words to perhaps? Still, fair-play to the man ... full marks for being down with the (somewhat aging at this point) young people!
