Putin picks a Black Sabbath fan for President

I'm not sure how to react to this. A heavy metal fan is going to have the nuclear button at his disposal.

"I've loved hard rock since my schooldays," Dmitry Medvedev told an interviewer in April, showing off a pair of two metre-high speakers shaped like rockets in his pastel-shaded living room. "Today, for example, I can boast that I have the entire collection of Deep Purple."

At 42, the man who is almost certain to be the next leader of Russia is the young, liberal face of the Kremlin and a protege of the President, Vladimir Putin.

I guess it could be worse, he could be a Cannibal Corpse fan or a Norwegian death metal fan.
