I really can't think of anything to say about this except maybe "DEAR GOD WHY!?"
Ben Folds puts own album on hold for actor's work
CLEVELAND, Ohio (Billboard) -- Ben Folds is pushing back the release date of his next solo album to early 2005 in order to give "Star Trek" veteran William Shatner's upcoming collection, "Has Been," his full attention. The set is being targeted for a September release by Shout! Factory.
"It is a great record and it is really worth going out and doing some shows in major cities," Folds told Billboard.com. "(Shatner) is not a musician at all -- he's not rapping or singing -- but he is still part of the music. I've never heard a record quite like it." [CNN.com]
