preferences. you might not like his voice, but that doesn't change the fact that he can hit the notes and sing well. obviously stephan wanted him to sing it (you see, he called him out to sing the song he wrote), so that's up for him to decide and not you. it is a great song, and it's good to see it done just a little bit differently. if you want to hear it the same way every time, listen to the recorded version from the album.
Preferences indeed. I don't prefer his voice, you do. We'll argue that til sunrise, no one's changing their minds. Read my post above. It's all cool and dandy that the band wanted him to do it blah blah blah, doesn't mean I should be okay with him doing it. And your last statement is just.... well I don't even know what to say to that.... it's just an asinine statement.
it sounds quite whiny to me in this video, and from the ATL i've heard, he has a bit of a whiny voice, imo.
