Fun facts about Christopher " ************* Badass" Lee:
1. Tolkien stated that if they ever had to make Lord of The Rings into a Film, Lee should play Gandalf.
2. He was a secret agent during the Second World War.
3. During a shooting of a scene where Lee's character (Sauroman) is stabbed in the back, Jackson complained that Lee didn't scream like he should. Lee responded: "Do you even know what sound a man, who has been stabbed, makes?" citing his experience as a secret agent during the Second World War as experience on said subject. The scene was never used in the film but has been included as "Extra Material" where Lee's agent refers to the story.
4. He claims to be a direct descendant of Charlemagne.
5. At the age of 90 he acted in a heavy metal music video as... Charlemagne.
6. Chuck Norris is afraid of Christopher Lee.
7. Number 6 is a lie, but might as well be the truth.

Don't know about the rest of your post but as a history nerd...4) is utter bollocks. Charlemagne is so far removed from contemporary society that everyone in Europe is related to him, and to cite direct lineage is just crap. Thought it was a pretty cool post until the utter **** that came towards the end.....

Sir Christopher Lee made a heavy metal album a year ago (Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross), and another one (Charlemagne: The Omens of Death) is coming out in 3 weeks. Thus he is the oldest metal artist in history, turning 91 around the same date as the second album is released. He also released two metal covers of classical christmas songs last christmas (www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVzOve8T39w), and has co-operated with other metal bands earlier, such as Rhapsody of Fire.

This is in my opinion the best song of his first album: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvKRbi2ovDY. He has an amazing voice with incredible power, especially for someone his age. However, considering that's he's Count Dracula, I doubt that his age will stop him from being awesome.

I cant believe this is real. Life is suddenly not so bleak. also, this:

"There was a time, when Sauroman would walk in my woods... but now, he has a mind of metal."
