Simply sing the CD/ISE voice. Why does he make it hard for himself?

On topic and being more positive, I actually thought Frank sounded pretty good on Slither.

He can't. CD/ISE trend in the bass end of the spectrum, Slither in the treble.

He needs to use his throat/diaphragm to control and vary the pitch and that's where his voice is shot.

I do not get angry at this, maybe the feeling is of concern.
I do not like to talk about it, Axl is the best for me, he may not always be stable, but as long as he's okay, he'll be the best.

However, what could maintain stability? Shows with shorter duration? Better fitness? Development of new vocal techniques? Surgery on the vocal cords?

I'm just talking about it... I know we do not have the information and therefore we do not have deep considerations to make.

Awesome that they put it in the setlist. Axl sounds bad, lethargic. You'd think he'd be pretty amped up covering it for the very first time. Haven't they been off for 6 months or so?  Had plenty of time to prepare & nail it.

Makes me realize Scott was a great & inspired live singer.

Axl blew out his voice in the Illusions era. Never to retuuuuurnnnn.

Axl and Kurt Cobain aren't dissimilar to many hardcore vocalists I've followed or heard about. They're enthusiastic about performing and they just keep on doing what they know until they run their voices into the ground. This can happen to even the most accomplished singers, i.e. Adele, Michael Jackson come to mind. It takes a lot of work to keep your voice strong and healthy even under the best circumstances.

The S.S. Axl has been running on fumes for years. He's basically all technique at this point.

I think since Hartford 93 but I could be wrong.

He needs to go to that vocal coach that Sebastian Back got him the other time.

If you expect mid-50s Axl to sound like 20s Axl, or 40s for that matter, you are fooling yourself. It’s not Mick’s voice. Totally different dynamic.

Would you rather he retire?
