On Tuesday, Emmy-winning actor William Shatner -- best known as Star Trek's Captain Kirk -- will release a new concept album called Seeking Major Tom.  The idea behind the album is an imagining of what happened to Major Tom -- the astronaut character who first appeared in David Bowie's hit song "A Space Oddity."  The two-CD set includes Shatner's mostly spoken-word interpretations of classic-rock tunes like The Police's "Walking on the Moon," Elton John's "Rocket Man," Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" and Black Sabbath's "Iron Man," to name a few.  It also features an impressive cast of guest musicians, including Peter Frampton, Steve Miller and members of YesThe Kinks and Deep Purple, among others.  "Twenty of the greatest musicians alive today," notes Shatner.  "All either were asked to come and join me, or jumped at the chance to come and join me.  God knows why.  But the result is...I think, monumental!"
