Leonard Nimoy, famously known as the incomparably logical Spock from the Star Trek television show and movies, passed away this morning at his home in Los Angeles the age of 83. The cause of death, confirmed […]
His popularity on Star Trek made it possible for Nimoy to record and to perform some very memorable versions of popular songs.
Nimoy boiled his life story down to three sentences: “Born in Boston. Went to Hollywood at 18. 16 years later cast as Spock in Star Trek.”
The clip for “Queenie Eye” was filmed at Abbey Road Studios earlier this month and sees him recording the track in what he thinks is an empty studio (Studio 2). As the video progresses, hijinks ensue in the form of surprising celebrity cameos including Jude Law, Meryl Streep, Tracy Ullman, Jeremy Irons, Tom Ford, Chris Pine, Alice Eve and–much to the delight of the paparazzi–former paramours Johnny Depp and Kate Moss.
