Lee Not A Stones Fan

Veteran actor Christopher Lee has never heard a ROLLING STONES song, because he doesn't think he'll like them. However, the 84-year-old's lack of enthusiasm for popular music hasn't stopped him from appreciating the talents of Elvis Presley and soul singer Lionel Richie. He says, "I've only once in my life been to a disco, and I left after about ten minutes. "I think I may have heard THE BEATLES - on the radio, without realising who there were. But I have never heard The Rolling Stones. They don't seem the kind of music I would like, so why bother? "But I'll tell you one thing: Elvis was a damn good singer - he didn't just gyrate. And I saw LIONEL RICHIE give a very clever performance in Geneva a couple of years ago. He was absolutely brilliant."

How can anyone in the civilized world claim they haven't hear the Beatles or Stones! Even the TV commercials are using their music! It is his loss, to limit himself to Elvis and Richie! To quote the late great Billy Preston, "Isn't it a Pity, Isn't it a Shame!" ( I guess Lee never heard that song either!)

I haven't laughed so hard in quite while; where has this guy been for half his lifetime? Its not even that he isn't a fan with cause, he doesn't think he's even heard any of their music ! I think that's one of the early(?) warning signs of Alzheimer's for sure. Thanks for the laugh Christopher " and I won't forget to put roses on your grave"
