Heavy Metal Monk

The Ayatollah of Rock-n-Roll-a?

Brother Cesare Bonizzi is a 62 year old Capuchin monk and former missionary from Italy. He attended a Metallica concert 15 years ago and found himself hooked on heavy metal:
"I was overwhelmed and amazed by the sheer energy of it."

He performs regularly with his own heavy metal band and he's just released his second album.

Cesare insists that he's not trying to convert listeners to Catholicism through his music. Instead, he claims, through his music he is teaching listeners about life. [BBC Story & Video] [YouTube video]

That's amazing, He seems to have a firm grasp on metal and what it's all about, and he has more energy than most young people. Go with your bad self brother! I would jam with him anytime.
