Why not?!? Just imagine the way he'd say: "My mother said To get things done, You'd better not mess With Major Tom..."

To be honest, i think Mick's singing is better than Steve. And that's coming from a Steve-fan!! Definitely think he's the best drummer in the world, but not much of a singer. Sounds too much like a bad/watered down version of his brother. I really like Mick's voice, it sounds 'honest'. Also like the fact that he isn't trying so hard, which Steve did with the Dolphin Brothers.

This track is available to buy from amazon and has been out for a while actually and its amazing, sounds way better on headphones when you can appreciate all the collective sounds in the cover,and Mick sounds cute on it especially when he sings the "my mamma says" line.
I wonder is he uses a voice distorter,because his voice sounds almost "robotic" in places of the song.Im sure the fans will feel very sentimental when they hear Mick sing on it, hearing this cover has been one of the many highlights of this year for me.
Ive reviewed it on Amazon:
