From Captain Kirk To Metalhead
Working with Wylde helped Shatner open his mind to the emotional breadth of heavy music as the pair worked on his over of Black Sabbath's Iron Man. "Heavy metal music made me turn away over the years, not understanding heavy metal," the actor says. "In my first attempt to do the lyric I realised the lyric spoke of Hell – it was like Hell to me."
Of Wylde, Shatner says: "I've never seen finger fly on a fretboard so quickly. He spent the whole day laying out his track and laying down another track on top of that. He was intricately working that song like an actor would do with a Shakespeare soliloquy, where every word has a meaning and our try and get the rhythm and the meaning and the sense – and yet throw it away so it doesn't seem obvious that you're working it. This guy blew my mind." more on this story
