Bigger than Mick?

Mick Jagger may be the front man of Super Heavy, but it's the presence of A.R. Rahman that will drive downloads

Fans in the West are a bit jaded when it comes to past-it musicians releasing music in new formats (thumbs up Eric Clapton Unplugged, thumbs down Paul McCartney & Wings) so I'm betting that it won't be Mick Jagger who drives downloads of Super Heavy's new reggae single, Miracle Worker. Especially given that India's A.R. Rahman has more fans that Michael Jackson and Madonna put together (or some such).

Check it out on Rahman's facebook page. Also, just between us, if you want to be cooler than your friends? It's not pronounced "Rockman" (though they said that at the Oscars if I recall correctly). It's "Ray-maan."
