Hi,

William Shatner ( Capt Kirk from Star Trek) after his 1968 rendition of Lucy in the Stars with Diamonds has recorded a new album ( titled " Has Been".)

Details from cnn;

PS I saw the LITSWD on TV once ( and it was not on the best songs of the 60's):}

Regards

The cover version of 'Common People' is much better than I expected it to be, and the song 'That's Me Trying' with Aimee Mann and Ben Folds is pretty good, quite poignant really.

Not as overblown as the classics. I still wish it had that version of 'Slim Shady' he did in an episode of Futurama.!

And he's still getting acting gigs at age 73. He just keeps going, and going, and going, and ......

Could it be any worse than the rap he did called "No Tears For Caesar" for the movie "Free Enterprise" ? ;)

If I get to his age, and take myself as seriously as he does, then I'll be a happy man.

The "Common People" cover is gold.

Apperently there's a massive paintball meet in the US called "Shatnerball". He plays the part of one of the "Generals" and does go shooting!

Aftert that and those Special K ads, I don't care what he does. Fair play to him!

It comes to something when you can't even be a William Shatner fan in peace and quiet. :{

He's also ready to take a seat on Branson's space odyssey (http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/europe/10/22/branson.space/index.html)
