Did Freddie's vocal nodules limit his range live? Or did he purposely sang lower because he knew he couldn't lose his voice during a long tour/show.

no Question it did effect his voice.  Not in the studio, but live it effected his voice big time.

Yeah, but some reason from the Crazy Tour to the Hot Space tour, Freddie would "go for it" when he had a high note.

Completely agree! His vocals on Rock Montreal and Live at the Bowl were amazing!

He also claims to have smoked because it made his voice huskier.

Apparently the women from fleetwood mac used to have it blown up their ass for that reason.  Or it could just have been for the sheer debauchery...

According to Mick's book, Stevie actually had a "hired hand", if you'll pardon the pun, who administered her coke anally during the Tango In The Night tour.  No details on exactly how that was administered.

It made me think.  If Freddie had done this, perhaps he could have hit those high notes with much more authority. 

So, guys, the next time the prostate exam comes up, try singing Little Lies.

His voice was affected by the amount he swallowed.

I know freddie said that, but I don't believe him.  He smoked because he had no control.  Eventually that lack of control caught up too him.

The only thing I saw wrong is you spelled 'postpone' as two words and it should have been in past tense.

But I understood what you were trying to say. 

Let's look at Mike's first post in this thread...
no Question it did effect his voice.  Not in the studio, but live it effected his voice big time


1.  "no" should have been capitalized
2.  "Question" should not have been
3.  A comma belongs after "question"
4.  The word BUT is a conjunction.  A compound sentence is joined by the conjunction BUT in sentence two, but it is NOT a compound sentence.  "Not in the studio" does not have a subject or predicate and therefore is not a complete thought and therefore the use of BUT is incorrect.
5.  it AFFECTED his voice, not effected it.


Mike Hunt's English is far worse than yours and he lives in an English speaking country.  Kinda tells you a little bit about the youth of today.

I'd say Mike Hunt is blowing hot air.

So you wanna fight because (1) you accused a Queenzoner of bad English skills and (2) I showed yours are far worse.

Okay.  When and where, Mr. New York tough guy?

I have a hard time believing someone named Mike Hunt is not a p*ssy.

In a state with that big a population, there are plenty of kitty kats in New York.  I live in Dallas TX.  You give me your flight number, and I'll pick you up at DFW airport.  We'll drive to Dallas Cowboys Stadium and I will buy you a pink Tony Romo jersey.  Then I can show you the Oak Lawn area, which you would be very comfortable in.   After a few drinks with the "boys", then maybe you'll have enough courage.  



 



Then you can change your user name to Mike Bitch, because you will be mine.  I already know you're Mike Hunt.



 



In your defense:  You know Rocky wasn't that smart either, tough guy.



 



It IS easy sitting behind the computer and acting tough.  But it is DIFFICULT sitting behind the computer and making grammatical sense, isn't it Mr. New York?  Instead of skipping class to beat people up, maybe you should have stayed in school.
