NEWS: William Shatner – honorary metalhead

Excellent choice, Revolver, excellent choice. William Shatner is totally badass.

PRESS RELEASE

Legendary actor, recording artist and author William Shatner will be presented with the Honorary Headbanger Award at the third annual Revolver Golden Gods award show presented by Epiphone on Wednesday, April 20, at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles. Revered for his role as Captain James T. Kirk on “Star Trek”, Shatner will be on hand to accept his award, an honor Revolver magazine bestows each year to someone who has made their name outside of the metal world but still embodies its spirit. Later this year, Shatner will officially prove the latter with his new album, “Seeking Major Tom” (Cleopatra), which features collaborations with hard-rock musicians, including Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Paice of Deep Purple, and, on a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man”, Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society and Mike Inez of Alice In Chains.
