In one of the most incredible moments in rock history, Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell legend Tony Iommi presented Sir Christopher Lee with the ‘Spirit of Hammer’ award at last night’s Metal Hammer Golden God awards. The ceremony took place at the Indigo02 Arena in London.
After apologising to the British Band Saxon for his passionate delivery of the lines "I shed the blood of the Saxon men" Sir Christopher made an emotional speech as he collected his award in front of 1500 jubilant metal fans and 300 members of the rock industry.
Before leaving he said "I will be leaving on my motorbike with a case of Jagermeister [beer] and several copies of Metal Hammer"
The Metal Hammer Golden Gods, which this year were sponsored by Kawasaki, are one of the most prestigious awards in the rock calendar.
