The late singers daughter, Owen Elliot-Kugell, admits she and her own daughter inherited the Cohen Honk from Mama Cass, her signature low voice dubbed after Cass birth surname.
Elliot-Kugell says the raspy Honk is prevalent in the speaking voices of many women in her family, so it must be one strong gene.
However, thats where it stops for Elliot-Kugell, who admits her singing is mostly used to torture her kids.
For true crooning, she recommends her mothers music and variety series, The Mama Cass Television Program, on DVD August 25.
Shes made it her mission to reissue Cass post Mamas & The Papas solo music so fans can see Mama at her very best.
Though Elliot-Kugell doesnt recall many backstage moments with Cass, she does remember the time Mom taught her to love football because the players had cute tushes.
