Truth Is Stranger #81: The Heavy Metal Capuchin Monk

A video of a heavy metal monk singing. Yes.

From the BBC:
At first glance, Cesare Bonizzi looks like the archetypal Capuchin monk - round-faced, stout, with twinkling eyes and a long flowing white beard. But beneath his robes beats a heart of metal.

Brother Cesare is the lead singer in a heavy metal band which has just released its second album.

A former missionary in the Ivory Coast, he lives in a small friary in the Milan hinterland.

The 62-year-old monk's love affair with heavy metal began when he attended a Metallica concert some 15 years ago....

Full story here.

p.s. I'm traveling, visiting family the next two weeks. I have some quirky pictures and videos arranged through Blogger's pre-posting. If it looks likes I have slapped things out's because I slapped things up here. Anyway, I will not be around to respond to queries. Have a good two weeks!
