True, the Ritz along with Nako-something plaza in japan are probably my highlights from '88

One of my favorites from the early years would be the show in Toronto '87

Still on the topic of his singing but on a album related note does anyone else find Axl hard to understand on Back Off Bitch?  Maybe it's just me but it sounds like he's singing through his nose.

Axl's vocals have always been an enigma, varying from show to show.

One thing that has always puzzled me is what happened after '87 he stopped being able to get that sharp high pitched sound, why was that?  Did he just strain his voice that he couldn't do it anymore?  I mean shows during 1987 his vocals would vary from being raspy to that clean high sound but then after '88 it was all rasp if you get what i mean?

I still think he sounds good live today but that's just something I've wondered about.





I'd put it down to a combination of smoking and excessive strain from touring.
LEAVE IT OUH!!!

Your probably right and add to it the 25 yrs age difference..I would have loved the visual on those two...the voice of a young Axl.....made me laugh...at one point during My Michelle...sounded like a little bit of helium was put in the mix. Wonder if I search...if I can fine them on video...hhhmmm...
If I could go back in time...To a place in my soul, there all alone.....

wow Axl's voice on that My Michelle performance is amazing.
she kisses 2 guys: Shes a SLUT; he bangs 5 girls: Hes a LEGEND. Well, theres a simple way to see this; If you got a lock that can be open with many keys, that lock kinda sucks, right? But if you got a key that can open many locks, it's a master key;)

Axls "unique" range- so thats the excuse his voice is blown the fuck out most of the time is it?

Lucky for other singers...say Brian Johnson of ACDC who have that "mainstream" vocal range and sing their fucking guts out night after night for like what? 30+ years (in Brians case) that they dont endure the unimaginable hardships that Bill Bailey W.Axl Rose (sorry I forgot tough guy Axl cant handle being called Bill Bailey and it upsets him) has to endure when he is singing, which of course is soo much more talented and amazing than the way anybody else sings.... :fpalm:

It's kind of sad that you consider the sexual abuse of a child a point of comedy. Not sad in a you're fucked up kind of way but sad as in people fucking suck these days.
