This is all Journey's fault.

That guy could probably find a really good voice style that was his. But one band from the 80s, 70s even, hires a sound alike singer off of YouTube and marginally creative people lose what little creativity they might have had and limit themselves to hoping to join a different nastalgia band, or a nastalgia band's tribute band.

There's only so many positions for a Freddie Mercury sound alike.

There are tons for an original singer with Freddie Mercury's range.

Thats kinda eerie. I've also got no issue with him doing it. There are too few iconic sounds in music that someone with a talent like that is nice to see. I liked Paul Rogers as a replacement, but he never had the Freddie sound. That voice meshed with the music to create something truly unique. I understand that artists want to grow and show off their new stuff. The problem is that once they strike gold its really really really difficult to hit it again. Many band plow through and keep putting out material that die hard fans eat up and vomit reproachful statements at old fans who don't get the direction. Rolling Stones, Sting, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam etc. These artist/bands have immense talent, but striking that gold vein again just isn't possible.

I'm sure this guy could be a great singer in a great independent band who fights the record label with one fist in the air and the other on the mic. Toil for years in shitty clubs and slowly work his way into bitter resentment for a life wasted. I've got a couple friends like that already.

Or he could get on stage and sing Freddie to a ton of screaming fans right now wailing out some of the best music ever.

I just went through Itunes jumping from new independent "if you like these you might like those" trying to find some new music to listen to. It was brutal. Lots of talent. Ton's of talent. Ton's of ok music. Very little spark.

He is apart of a band, and I do believe they have original music, I think he did this for Freddie contest of some sort.

Agreed he is good and sounds al;ot like him ...which makes it really creepy.
I especially liked how he started getting into it in the middle and end moving around lol.


Kinda off subject but since were talking about music someone turned me onto a band called nightwish thought you guys might like them if you don't already know about them they are opera metal or something along those lines.

better song here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UztEfwHt14

There must be two bands called Nightwish.

The video that you posted has a much different band in it then some of the other Nightwish videos.

Or the lead singer got jealous and the other girls HAD TO GO...

or something.

Kind of a fun song that draws from a little Heart, Evinessence (or however you spell it), and Iron Maiden.

You are correct sir the lead singer left for some reason (I'm not sure why) and now the newer videos have a new female lead.The older (better, in my opinion) singer still does her own stuff though. I usually just search her by her real name.
