Shatner's Rocket Man... On Video!

Before he was hobnobbing with Ben Folds and trading rants with Henry Rollins, William Shatner the “singer” was famous for the close-encounter inspired album Transformed Man, and a drolly soliloquised version of Rocket Man that he performed at a sci-fi convention in 1978. An mp3 of this take on the Elton John classic has been bouncing around the Web for quite some time, and now, thanks to the good folk at iFilm, you can watch a video of this truly unforgettable performance.
