The Bret Saunders Podcast: William Shatner

William Shatner has cultivated a career spanning over 60 years as an award-winning actor, (most notably in the role of “Captain James T. Kirk” in the TV series Star Trek), director, producer, writer, recording artist, and horseman. His new album is 'The Blues', a collection of blues classics with a little help from some famous friends, like Richie Blackmore from Deep Purple, Stax Records guitarist Steve Cropper, Elvis sideman James Burton, and many more. He and Bret talk about how he immersed himself in the genre as he prepped for the album, the music he grew up listening to in Montreal, and the highs and lows of touring with a band.
