William Shatner Premieres "Iron Man" + Interviews & Articles

Exclusive: William Shatner Premieres His Version of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” Featuring Zakk Wylde
Acting legend and recipient of the Honorary Headbanger Award at this year’s Revolver Golden Gods has finally released his version of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man.” The Star Trek captain holed up with Black Label Society and former Ozzy Osbourne axman Zakk Wylde and Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez earlier this year to record the track, which can be found on his new double-album, Seeking Major Tom (Cleopatra), which comes out on October 11. Presales for the album start today right here!

Of working with Wylde, Shatner commented, “He’s fantastic! I’m energized.” Wylde was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Shatner and added, “He’s super cool, we had an awesome time working together.”

When I saw the list of songs Bill was gonna cover, I didn't know any of them, so I decided to only checkout Iron Man and Bohemian Rhapsody (I actually became a fan of Queen/Freddie thanks to Bill!) and so I have to say I'm really impressed with Bill's version of Iron Man, I have been listening to it several times since yesterday and still doing so today ^__^
