I suspect that song will be around for a long time. Why I don't know.

That said, I think this dude sang on one of Gus G's albums and sounded pretty good but I don't think he's going to add much to TSO. Especially since I'm sure Paul will have him growling and gravel-voicing all over the place since that seems to be his favorite schtick now.
