We’ve asked a shit-ton of people from the world of heavy metal all sorts of old nonsense about Christmas. You give a shit, right? First up – Peter Ellis, (current) vocalist in White Wizzard.
Do you have any particular or unusual Christmas traditions?
Not any more but when I was a kid I would always go and sing Christmas carols door to door on Christmas and New Year’s eve every year. It’s a big tradition in Greece. Kids go out from the early hours of the morning on these two days and sing Christmas songs door to door for sweets or pocket money. I used to make a ton of money every Christmas doing that since people would usually give me more money that most kids because I had a good voice and I was doing it well – some of those kids were awful!
