Perhaps you've heard, the legendary William Shatner is hosting the 2011 Genie Awards, celebrating the best in Canadian film. You can see the show live on CBC from the National Arts Centre on March 10th from Ottawa. Shatner, who was born in Montreal, says he's looking forward to coming to Canada and seeing "old friends... unfortunately, most of them are dead of old age."
Obviously, Shatner has had a great acting career - Star Trek, T.J. Hooker, Boston Legal and S#*! My Dad Says. But he's also had a noted and often parodied music career, releasing several albums. And recently, he tweeted his plans to release a metal album this year. Shatner generally "speaks" the lyrics instead of singing them, but he's covered a bunch of artists including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Elton John and Eminem. Here's a few of our favourites.
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds - The Beatles
Common People - Pulp
Rocket Man - Elton John
