If you’re a Star Trek fan you probably know that, just like William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy had an alternate career as a singer. You may have heard his best known song, “Highly Illogical”. But did you know he released five albums back in the '60s? I must admit, I didn’t.
This is just one of many vital facts I learnt when I came across a website called The Musical Touch of Leonard Nimoy. It contains an overview of his singing career and a discography (with short MP3 clips of selected tracks - you’ve got to hear his cover of Kenny Rogers’s “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”!) Better still, there are ace galleries of groovy photos of Nimoy posing with guitars and clippings from pop magazines - where Nimoy incongruously rubs shoulders with the likes of Davy Jones from The Monkees!
In short, it’s a really cool site! Click here

Oh, and while we’re discussing singing Star Trek stars, if you’ve never seen William Shatner performing “It Was a Very Good Year” on TV then you haven’t lived. Go watch it on YouTube
