Blabbermouth.net – File this under “Signs of the Apocalypse”, but William Shatner is working on a new CD. . . and it’s got a metal edge to it. Yeah, really. Revolver magazine even made him an Honorary Headbanger. See – signs of the apocalypse!
And check out ole’ Bill’s list of guest musicians; Zakk Wylde, Richie Blackmore, Johnny Winter, Bootsy Collins, Ian Paice, Michael Schenker, Brad Paisley, Alan Parsons (he’s still alive?), Peter Frampton, Dave Davies, Steve Howe, many others. Of course, no self-respecting guest list would be complete without Carmine Appice on the drums (I think he’s actually part of the US copyright process, in that a song isn’t copywritten unless Carmine Appice plays on it).
Read the whole linked article on Blabbermouth. . . and shiver a little. I mean did you ever hear Shatner’s rendition of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”? OMG – I’ve heard cats mate with more musicality. Here’s hoping with this level of talent in the studio alongside him, something good comes out of it. Or someone has the common sense to destroy the tapes.
