I would classify Shatner as Classic  Redneck Jazz, and yes Kentucky Fried 
Chicken would
be the best sponsor for his tour dates.  :))

But what the Heck if Rod Stewart can become our newest American Song Book 
Crooner, look for Willie Nelsen to record and sell twenty million copies of the 
Rudy Valle song book, there is obviously a market for it with the current 
musical taste of Americans.

Perhaps we will also see a Monster Hit of Perry Como and Andy Williams 
greatest hits done by Snoop Doggy Dog, and Kaye Star's greatest hits done by the 
artist known as .fitty cent.   If they live long enough.

I think it's time to turn the tide folks, maybe we could get Anita O'Day and 
Debbie Reynolds to team up and do a Greatest Rap Hits recording and sell it to 
them young rappers, or maybe Andy and Mickey Rooney doin' Rap duets over 
Glenn Miller soundtracks.  Ya hear what I'm sayin?    How about Norah Jones does 
Big Mamma Thornton and Ma Rainey tributes.

Now I heard dat man!
Gotta be Creative these days folks if ya wanna get a Major Record Deal.
