Hollywood Legend Christopher Lee Shocks the World by Entering the Christmas Music Charts

'The Lord of the Rings' actor, Sir Christopher Lee becomes the oldest living performer to achieve a music chart position with the release of 'A Heavy Metal Christmas Too'. The song 'Jingle Hell' enters the Billboard Hot 100.



Wonderful news. I want to thank everyone involved, especially the fans. I have spent my career surprising people, so here is to the next one!

    LONDON, ENGLAND, December 24, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 91-year-old Lee surprises yet again by entering the Billboard Hot 100 Single Sales Chart at No. 22 with his Heavy Metal take on the classic 'Jingle Bells', appropriately titled 'Jingle Hell'.

The song forms part of the single release 'A Heavy Metal Christmas Too'. "B-side" includes the song 'My Way', which he certainly did "His Way".

Upon being informed and while on a Christmas break from his latest project, Sir Christopher said: "Wonderful news. I want to thank everyone involved, especially the fans. I have spent my career surprising people, so here is to the next one!"

Christopher Lee was already the oldest Heavy Metal performer and now becomes the oldest living performer to enter the music charts. The record was previously held by Tony Bennett, who was 85 when he recorded 'Body and Soul' with Amy Winehouse in March 2011. Sir Christopher who was born on 27 May 1922, was 91 years and 6 months old when he recorded 'Jingle Hell'.

Lee is known to younger generations for playing Saruman in 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit'. He also starred as the villainous Count Dooku in the 'Star Wars' prequel trilogy. Older generations will remember him for his iconic portrayals of Dracula, Scaramaga in 'The Man with the Golden Gun' and Lord Summerisle in 'The Wicker Man'.

The single is available through iTunes, Amazon and Google play.
