I believe though that he did something else, maybe 4-5 years ago, that truthfully, didn't sound too bad.
I'm all for it. I think that Carbo should do his post game conference in a Shatner impression though, make it William Shatner night.
That record (The Transformed Man?) from the early 70's was really funny. At the time it was just kind of a head-scratcher but later even he had to laugh. He did a rendition of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds that was universally panned as the worst cover of a Beatles tune
back in the day before all the Much Music, MTV, VH1 music video some groups did film videos. Shatner did one for "Sky Pilot" by Eric Burdon and the Animals. He is basically just walking around the beach in miltary garb while the tune plays. Definitely 60's/Nam/anti-war type stuff prevalent then.
