Some things are so awesome, they're nearly beyond the understanding of mere mortals. What you are about to see reaches that level, at the very least.

It's a video of William Shatner in the recording studio, laying down the vocals for his version of the Black Sabbath classic "Iron Man".

Check it out here:

This is for Shatner's upcoming album, "Seeking Major Tom" in which he covers an interesting variety of songs from the '70s and '80s, including David Bowie's "Space Oddity", Deep Purple's "Space Truckin'", Elton John's "Rocket Man", Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me with Science", Golden Earring's "Twilight Zone", Steve Miller's "Space Cowboy" and "Walking on the Moon" by the Police.

Obviously, there's a SPACE theme here. The disc is also loaded with guest stars, including Ritchie Blackmore, Peter Frampton, Sheryl Crow, Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, Brad Paisley, Johnny Winter and Zakk Wylde.
