Remember William Shatner? Starring as Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series, atttempting to become a singer with his "If I had a Hammer", "Mr Tamborine Man" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"... "Enough!" most people would say now, "We admire him for his Star Trek, not for his music."

He has made a new record, called "Has Been". This time not songs from others, but from himself. As a man who is with 73 years old at the end of his life, and wants to come to term with what happened to him: The memories, the losses, the coming end, his view on life, Very different styles, very different topics, very different people. And as you expect from his (in)famous James T. Kirk style of acting, he's not singing but talking.

If you're interested in a record with challenging songs, or wondering how a 73 year old can make interesting music, or just are interested in what William Shatner has made this time, you should download this record. And when you're in the record shop next time and see this record, you might be tempted to buy it.
