William Shatner - Intro

William Shatner is the prototypical example of a non-musical celebrity embarking on an ill-advised musical career. His debut, the 1968 vanity project "The Transformed Man," featured him performing Shakespearean monologues alongside spoken word renditions of popular songs of the era. The latter have become the stuff of legend, He was smart enough to make limited stabs at recording in subsequent years, recording just three more albums (only one of which isn't totally obscure). Basically, this is the ultimate in kitsch.
