FOR YOUR LISTENING DISPLEASURE: THE WILLIAM SHATNER/ZAKK WYLDE “IRON MAN” COVER
When we first heard about William Shatner and Zakk Wylde’s cover of “Iron Man” in February, I made fun of The Shat for thinking that following direction would somehow increase the quality of Wylde’s performance:
“Finally, he’s dying… and this is like hell for him… he is dying in hell. Now, if that adds any character to what you’re playing… if it becomes more stark, more hell…”
Now that I’ve heard the song, though, I realize I owe Shatner a massive apology. This version of the Sabbath classic does, indeed, feel like dying in hell.
I have no idea when the rest of the album will be released, but when I see the Four Horseman racing across the landscape, I’ll know to check iTunes.
