RIP: Christopher Lee -  A Legend Like No Other

Horror legend and icon Sir Christopher Lee has passed away Sunday June 7, 2015 at the age of 93. This is sad, terrible and horrible news. Sir Christopher Lee’s wife only released this news recently because she first wanted to notify all family and friends first. Lee was hospitalized in London recently for respiratory problems but passed away due to heart failure on Sunday June 7, 2015. Sir Christopher Lee, born May 27, 1922 has nearly 300 films to his acting career besides his heavy metal music. Lee started acting in the 1940’s where he met Peter Cushing during The Curse of Frankenstein in 1957. Cushing and Lee became life long friends. Other highlights of his career are from The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: Episode II & III, James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) or his many great roles as Dracula in various Hammer Films. Sir Christopher Lee will be missed by many generations of fans including myself.
