William Shatner Working On a Space-Themed Metal Album With Zakk Wylde and Brian May

William Shatner ($#*! My Dad Says) is in the recording studio, putting together what is likely to be his most shat-tastic foray into the world of music. I know you’re thinking that there’s no way that he could possibly top his cover of the Elton’s John classic Rocket Man but, this just might.

Shatner is reportedly in the studio with the likes of Zakk Wylde (Ozzy, Black Label Society), Brain May (Queen), Peter Frampton, Bootsy Collins, Ian Pace (Deep Purple) and Steve Howe (Yes) putting together a “space” or “flying in space” themed metal album titled Seeking Major Tom.

Shatner recently took to Twitter after spending some time in the studio to heap some praise on Wylde:

“Zakk is one of the great guitarists who played with Ozzy Osbourne. A master playing a cover of IRON MAN. He’s fantastic! I’m energized. MBB”

I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes… check it out!
