Christopher Lee marks 92nd birthday with heavy metal release



Veteran British actor Sir Christopher Lee celebrated his 92nd birthday by releasing a new collection of heavy metal music.

"The Lord of the Rings" star reached the milestone on Tuesday and marked the occasion by unveiling his latest musical release "Metal Knight," a seven-track record which includes two covers of songs from stage musical "Man of La Mancha," based on fictional character Don Quixote.

He says, "As far as I am concerned, Don Quixote is the most metal fictional character that I know. Single-handed, he is trying to change the world, regardless of any personal consequences. It is a wonderful character to sing."

The film icon has previously released four other albums of music, as well as heavy metal-themed Christmas songs.
