Since so much of Shatner's musical output is drenched in this kind of sound, I just think he should cover more prog-rock material.
I mean, his latest album, Seeking Major Tom
, has a bunch of progressive and hard-rockin' greats guesting on it: among them are Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow), Steve Howe (Yes, Asia), John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia), Patrick Moraz (Yes, The Moody Blues), and even Alan Parsons (The Alan Parsons Project).
He should've invited the following to play on his last CD: Lawrence Gowan, Dennis DeYoung, James "J. Y." Young, Tommy Shaw, Glen Burtnik, Ricky Phillips, Todd Sucherman, Steve Walsh, Kerry Livgren, Rich Williams, Dave Hope, Billy Greer, Robby Steinhardt, Phil Ehart, Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsson, David Hentschel, Brian May, John Deacon, Roger Taylor (Queen), Paul Rodgers, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart, Michael Sadler, Ian Crichton, Jim Crichton, Steve Negus, Jim Gilmour, Aldo Nova, Rick Davies, Roger Hodgson, Dougie Thomson, Bob Siebenberg and John Helliwell.
