Great singer. I love it when ones expectations are confounded. The woman in this vid' of a covers band looks as if she works in the local hairdressers, but boy can she sing -

Fella can sing alright, but to my ears it's identikit mawk-by-numbers, headed straight for a regular Jools slot.

I think on balance, female vox are more pleasing to the ear than male... plus, men are such bastards already, that they really shouldn't be allowed to be singers.

In fact I don’t know why all men aren’t rounded up and put on an island where we are simply required to produce a gallon or two of sperm a month in exchange for food, let’s face it, were fück all good for anything else.

Having given that a little more thought (as I was fettling the pickup height on a false jazz bass), I reckon beta males such as ourselves, David Byrne out of Talking Heads, etc -- are alright... it's the alphas that shouldn't be allowed to be singers.

Thought it was okay - great voice although can't be doing with all that waving the arms around stuff.... Still, better than the George Michael attempt, IMHO opinion of course.

As Chris says above, the definitive version of this song is the Bonnie Raitt one, featuring Bruce Hornsby on piano. Apparently she recorded it in one take, saying she couldn't capture the emotion again.

Is this a case of dress for the job you want- Guy wanted to be in Mastodon, all places were taken. Decides to be come a soul/pop balladeer on the flip side?
