    As I said, we 'were wasting our time' (not meant negatively or personally). Well, maybe not, as the Captain knows his preferences even better. I hope he also understands non-classical a little better.

    Well, what did you expect? This is a classical music forum. You fell right into the trap

    By the way.... Thom Yorke's current performance at Glastonbury isn't doing it for me. I guess when you're the biggest band in the world you can get away with it....

    But the Glasto crowd will still cheer with one-eyed devotion just like they do for the likes of Coldplay.

    I think millions of fans love Michael Stipe's voice. He may not have the pipes of Freddie Mercury but do you really need Mercury's pipes to sing "Losing My Religion"?. And then there's Wayne Coin. I ADORE his voice. I cannot imagine anybody who can do justice to "Chrome Plated Suicide"

    What about this lad...?

    David Michael Draiman (born March 13, 1973) is an American songwriter and the vocalist for the band Disturbed as well as for the band Device. Draiman is known for his distorted voice and percussive singing style. In November 2006, Draiman was voted number 42 on the Hit Parader’s "Top 100 Metal Vocalists of All Time".[1] (Wiki)

    I think the Glasto crowd can cheer without reference to whether TY's singing is doing it for topo morto. I must say that whilst some of the singing was a little 'off', that's to be expected since his style is more about emoting than hitting the notes.

    Both technique and emotion are important to me, and the best have both.
