Re: Steve and Joe please don't sing!

I'd rather hear Steve & Joe sing than Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Chryssie Hynde, Kurt Cobain or Mick Jagger...and none of them are guitar virtuosos....just singers (and possibly rhythm guitarists).

Sure they're not great singers, but they sure ain't the worst! And at least there's a gutiar solo here or there to break up the vocals.

Re: Steve and Joe please don't sing!

I've heard a LOT worse singing from current-era vocalists. I think they realize that singing's not their forte. I really don't mind Joe's voice on something like "Lifestyle." Its not like he's doing any Queensryche covers!

Re: Steve and Joe please don't sing!

When i saw him perform last march, Steve actually said 'The bad news is that I'm going to sing now'.

They know they're not singers...but their art requires singing in certain spots in order for them to fully express their thoughts/feelings.

Listen to those "cookie monster" vocal bands...that's godawful sh!t!

Then keep it to yourself. I enjoy hearing them both sing.

I think one of the best vocalist that was first a GREAT (and still is) guitarist is Nuno Bettencourt....

Like Kenny said, it brings their music to another level of expression. Sometimes I get the feeling Vai is opening his soul when he sings.

BTW, Vai said the same thing in Boston -- apologizing before he sang. I still love I Know You're Hear.

Enough. It isn't like I can't see what IP addresses these posts are coming from.
