Shatner Claus?

A lot of celebrities have Christmas albums.

Usually it's the ones who can sing.

That's not really the case with Star Trek's William Shatner.  But he surrounds himself with people who can. 

The 87 year-old actor is joined by several big names in music including Judy Collins, Iggy Pop, Brad Paisley, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull.  

It's called Shatner Claus -- The Christmas Album.  And it's a thing.  I'm not sure it's a GOOD thing, though I have read some positive reviews... well, at least one.

"No need to feel guilty over the pleasures in the famously histrionic actor’s readings of more than a dozen holiday tunes, the majority featuring guest collaborators from punk rockers Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins to country star Brad Paisley, folk veteran Judy Collins and prog-rock luminaries Rick Wakeman and Ian Anderson. He’s honed in on narrative songs that are well suited to a spoken delivery out of the Robert Preston-Rex Harrison-Richard Harris school of nonsinging actors. A delightfully dramatic outing."
