shatner's latest album

This has been out for a while, but William Shatner has a new album out, called "Has Been". Be sure and visit the web site, there are samples of most songs and interviews with Shatner about several of them. My favorite so far is the title track and Shatner has an interesting take on the phrase "has been". It's almost always used derisively, but why, he asks? Doesn't "has been" mean that the person really has been something special? And isn't that a lot better than never having been anything, ever? It reminds me of another phrase, "one hit wonder". Again, it's a term used derisively, but a band that just has a single hit has been (ha!) a lot more successful than, say, 99% of the bands out there, right? Isn't that pretty good?

I can't agree more! This is an awesome album, and I must give William Shatner credit. I hope that he and Ben Folds unite again for another!
