Who is the most technically gifted male vocalist of all time?
It's gotta be Patton
Here's the thing about Mike. The man has some serious pipes. He has a six octave range and excels in any octave. He writes brilliant songs. And his stage presence is only matched by Adolf Hitler.
Seriously, Watch Mr. Bungle play What the World needs now at Bizarre Festival and then watch a video of the Nuremburg rallies. We better thank our lucky stars Mike didn't go into politics or he would have taken over the world.
But Mr. Bungle as a whole had a brilliant dynamic. It wasn't just the Mike Patton backup band. They all made huge creative contributions to what made Bungle what it is. Yes Mike wrote Girls of Porn, Sweet Charity and The Air conditioned Nightmare.
But Trevor Dunn wrote Retrovertigo, The holy Filament and Phlegmatics. Trey Spruance wrote Desert Search for Techno Allah, None of them know they were robots, Golem II the bionic vapour boy.
Other bands like Nirvana for instance were not like that. Nirvana was basically just the Kurt Cobain backup band. Mr. Bungle was the perfect storm of legendary talent, and Mike was the face of it all, the delicious cherry on top of an already delicious sundae.
He was the ambassador that allowed the amazing talent of the combo that was Mr. Bungle to be brought into our lives. He was the prism that focused the lazer beams from the brains of Trevor, Trey, Heifietz and Mckinnon and amplified them until they were powerful enough to blow out minds out through our ear holes.
Yes, he is the most incredible front man who has ever lived, hands down.
Spurdo is evolving quite nicely as a meme but also as an artform. I really hope normies don't steal him too.
technical ability can mean a lot of things. not much of a Muse fan but Matt Bellamy has pretty incredible vocal abilities. Jacob Bannon from Converge has absolutely inhuman screams. to me Townes Van Zandt's voice is unparalleled in conveying feeling. etc
There would be no gondola without spurdo, no matter how you look at it. And besides that spurdo is an essential meme, a classic. Look what happened to pepe, everyone hates him now. If spurdo goes, then gondola goes and we'll have something stupid just like how we got fefe from pepe
This is the right answer.
But since OP was precise enough, I'll add my questions in the mix :
Give me the best vocalist with the greatest discography, vocal range isn't all about music. I saw that video of a 9 octaves range guy, he wasn't even a know singer, some shitty guy doing it in front of his cam in portugal, that doesn't make him a singer or a good musician I believe
Give me real relevant stuff anons.
A good vocalist, no matter the genre, who wisely used his good voice to make his material sound gold.
Dropping some random names
Michael Jackson (yeah no shit, at his best his voice was smooth)
Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Barry white
Lol, noone gives a fuck man. What are you trying to prove? That you know a lot about music? When was the last time you talked to some IRL about music? Let me guess, you sprawled out some shit you read on wikipedia and passed it off as your own and felt good about it. None gives a fuck about you my man, stop posting :).
It's not that something being mainstream makes it bad, it's just that most stuff that is mainstream (aka appeals to the most people) isn't all that interesting. Not defending that guy, because Aerosmith suck, but I'm just saying.
