William Shatner (if you don’t know who he is don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out) is releasing an album of rock/metal songs called Seeking Major Tom (or it could be Searching for Major Tom, depending on where you read about it, but Amazon are going with Seeking for the pre-order) next month. His version of Sabbath’s Iron Man is streaming at the bottom of this page here and has to be heard to be believed. The track listing is brilliant and I can’t wait to get this on the turntable.
Is he a madman with unreasonably free access to facilities and people to make things like this or is he an utter genius who understands the nature of the human psyche and likes to twist our melons?
The comments on the page linked to above would suggest both.
I’ve got the whole weekend off and there’s a bastard hurricane coming in. What the hell man?
