#13: I Had No Idea
Christopher Lee is a legend. He was born in London in 1922, was 6’5” tall, and, according to IMDB, acted in 285 films and shows. That alone is pretty spectacular, but add in all the facts below, and he has to be one of the most interesting people of the 21st century. Sadly, he died at the age of 93 in 2015, but he lives on in our hearts.
His love of heavy metal landed him the lead vocalist spot in the Italian band Rhapsody of Fire, as well as a feature in a Manowar recording. He also released four solo albums, one of which came out just two years before he died in 2013. That’s right. He was still slamming heavy metal in his 90s. If that doesn’t impress you, I don’t know what will!
