William Shatner Is Recording Star-Studded Metal Album in L.A.
William Shatner is back in the studio working on yet another great big pile of Shat-mazing, Incredibly Strange music. It’s been over a week since Shatner first formally proclaimed Zakk Wylde’s mad skills via Twitter (“Best, Bill”), but our sources on the scene confirm that some big metal heavy-hitters have been engaged to play backup to Captain Kirk.
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 (but who haven’t done their parts yet) include Steve Howe of Yes, Ian Paice of Deep Purple and the god among men, Brian May of Queen. Supposedly it’s only a matter of scheduling that prevents confirmation (come on May, make this happen!). Finally, it wouldn’t be a space themed album without the space man and his self proclaimed Space Bass, Bootsy Collins!
