Ian Paice will be making guest appearance on a new space theme concept album called Seeking Major Tom. Comprised of 18 interpretations of “classic intergalactic rock anthems” (you can start making guesses), the release will also feature guest appearances by Brian May, Steve Howe, Peter Frampton and Zakk Wylde. William Shatner (of Star Trek fame) is also attached to the project, although it’s not clear in exactly what capacity. The release is due later this year on Los Angeles-based Cleopatra Records.
Thanks to Blabbermouth for the info.
