Legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) has recorded a cover of the BLACK SABBATH classic “Iron Man” with “Star Trek” icon William Shatner.

Shatner revealed the news via his Twitter profile, writing, “Just watched tracks being laid down by Zakk Wylde of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY for my upcoming record ‘Seeking Major Tom’.” He added, “Zakk is one of the great guitarists who played with Ozzy Osbourne. A master playing a cover of ‘Iron Man’. He’s fantastic! I’m energized.”

“Seeking Major Tom” pairs Shatner with musician Adam Hamilton and is expected to contain around 20 songs, including a version of QUEEN‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The CD will be released later this year via Cleopatra Records.

According to USA Today, Ozzy Osbourne will team up with teen heartthrob Justin Bieber for the first Super Bowl commercial for Best Buy, the nation’s largest home electronics chain. The ad, to air in the game’s third quarter, was filmed earlier this month at Universal Studios.

Justin Bieber is the biggest star out there, but that’s not why he’s in the spot,” says marketing chief Drew Panayiotou. “He symbolically represents something important to the brand message.”

When Ozzy was interviewed last month on Fuse TV and was asked to talk about his contemporary music tastes and, in particular, if he was a fan of Justin Bieber, he replied, “Who the fuck is Justin Bieber?”
