I’ve had an opportunity to do some work with William Shatner over the last couple of years and we’ve kept in touch. LOVE the guy. I learned more about performance and presentation from him over about three weeks than I did in the previous five years. And as a life-long Star Trek nerd, working with him has been everything I’d hoped for–and more.
I recently went to see him perform his new prog-rock album, Ponder the Mystery, at a packed club in San Juan Capistrano, California.
We chatted about it later on the phone. We also got a little deeper into some of his older musical works, including the infamous Transformed Man from 1968.
