Oh. So. Rad.
Who out there in their right mind doesn't like William Shatner's version of Rocket Man??
And it's THAT fact that will make what Shat's recording next so friggin' fantastic!
Let's be clear:
- WILLIAM SHATNER IS RECORDING A METAL ALBUM.
- There will be huge guests on it.
- All the songs will have to do with "space" or "flying in space."
- We can't wait.
Here's what's being said about potential guests:
Peter Frampton and Mike Inez (who will be playing "Iron Man" with fellow Ozzy alum, Zakk Wylde) are definitely participating and our source claims artists slated to perform include Steve Howe of Yes, Ian Paice of Deep Purple and the god among men, Brian May of Queen. It wouldn't be a space themed album without the space man and his self proclaimed Space Bass, Bootsy Collins!
And of the songs:
"Track list currently includes "Bohemian Rhapsody" (which May will not be playing on-no joke), a Byrds song, "Space Odyssey," "Iron Man," "Learn to Fly" and… wait for it… "SHE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE"!."
We feel like our hearts are about to jump out of our chests! This is going to be in-cred-i-ble!
Are U excited for this new Shatner album??
