Legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) has recorded a cover of the BLACK SABBATH classic "Iron Man" with "Star Trek" icon William Shatner.
Shatner revealed the news via his Twitter profile, writing, "Just watched tracks being laid down by Zakk Wylde of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY for my upcoming record 'Seeking Major Tom'." He added, "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."
"Seeking Major Tom" pairs Shatner with musician Adam Hamilton and is expected to contain around 20 songs, including a version of QUEEN's "Bohemian Rhapsody". The CD will be released later this year via Cleopatra Records.
