Comments by Paul Rance

William Shatner is best known for piloting the Enterprise through outer space in Star Trek and as TV cop T. J. Hooker. However, Shats has also built up a reputation with his distinctive interpretations of classic songs. The question, though, has to be asked: Would you allow this man to be in charge of your starship?

Thanks to Keith Levene for tipping me off re some of the Shatmeister's offerings I'd previously missed.


Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
This really launched the legend. Rarely has a Beatles song been given such a unique treatment. The animation, combined with the music, will stay with you forever...

Space Oddity
Deep Purple axeman Ritchie Blackmore and singer Candice Night join Bill in this haunting take on David Bowie's first hit single.

Rocket Man
A very straight and heartfelt rendition of one of Elton John's most famous songs.

I'm Too Sexy
Kirky gets very intense on this one and goes trouserless. Cue females swooning all over the universe.

Bohemian Rhapsody
The lyrics for Queen's 1975 smash were always a tad strange, and Bill underlines just how strange with this tear-jerking vocal performance...

Common People
My personal favourite. The Pulp original was good, but this is in a different league.
