There is a 62 years young, Franciscan monk that seems to have had a divine musical intervention with the big guy.
The thing is, he had it through the most unlikely of mediums … Metallica and Megadeth music! I wonder if anyone has translated the lyrics into his native tongue? I honestly do not know how this post is going to turn out, so here goes and don’t tell my mom!
Being brought up in a fairly strict catholic family, I always had the image of the Franciscan monk, as a very pious old man wearing the traditional brown vestment and singing Gregorian chants, which was invented by the Franks. The Franks were West Germanic tribes, first identified in the 3rd century as an ethnic group living north and east of the Lower Rhine, ok the religious history lesson is over for today kidz!Saint/priest Padre Pio, is the one who comes to mind when thinking of a monk. After this post, I just may change your idea of the singing Monk!
To many he is known as Brother Cesare Bonizzi and to others Fratello Metallo (“Brother Metal”). He has a not bad voice, but he might want to work on his stage presence. What do you think?
Keep on Jammin’
