William Shatner: I didn't know about Bohemian Rhapsody
William Shatner, most famous for his role in Star Trek as Captain James T Kirk, admitted he had never heard of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, a song he has covered on his new album.
The actor's new studio album, which is entitled Seeking Major Tom, came out this week, and features cover versions of classic songs.
This includes Black Sabbath's Iron Man and Pink Floyd's Learning to Fly.
Speaking to Spinner, he said that had you asked about Freddie Mercury and Queen, he would not have been able to tell you who they were.
"If you had played me 'Bohemian Rhapsody, I would have told it you that was one of the greatest pieces of music I've ever heard. It's operatic; it's modern and beautifully sung.
"And then if you would have told me about the history of Freddie Mercury and Queen, I would have gasped because it's so dramatic. But I knew nothing of that until I came to it in this latter day."
