Reports are emerging that Zakk Wylde has recorded a cover of Black Sabbath classic 'Iron Man' with 'Star Trek'-turned-comic pop star William Shatner.

Famous for his spoken-word renditions of rock and pop hits, such as Elton John's 'Rocket Man' (see below) and, of course, for his star turn as Captain James T Kirk in the original series of 'Star Trek', Shatner leaked the news on his Twitter, stating: "Just watched tracks being laid down by Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society for my upcoming record SEEKING MAJOR TOM [sic]." Before following up with another tweet, explaining: "Zakk is one of the great guitarists who played with Ozzy Osbourne. A master playing a cover of IRON MAN. He's fantastic! I'm energized."

How successful would this pairing be? We're yet to decideā€¦ but we do know that we NEED to hear that track. Check out the video below for a taste of Shatner's previous musical endeavours.
