What can I say, this guy is awesome. He's helped me learn better how to pick up on musical vocal fails and improve better on my techniques, he's a very funny dude, and it was a blast to hang out with him in New York and Atlanta earlier this summer, as well as play the Queen cover show at Breakthru whilst in Atlanta. He also has an EXCELLENT set of bootleg channels on YouTube dedicated to Queen, Elton John, amongst others :-)

He has also proved to be a great addition to our #PM-Radio podcast's regular cast lineup, and has contributed great things to our show (insightful, outrageously funny and some hilarious fails inbetween!)

He's also one of the few people I can keep ongoing in-jokes running without making them a bore! ;-)

He sure sounds like a best buddy; he must rank very high on the awesome scale.

His reliable warmth and charming geekiness are an asset both to the board and to his unending OCD fueled quest for the best and worst Freddie warble.  I hope he never quite finds it. :)

All I can say is - for his own sanity, I hope he doesn't decide to study Zeppelin's performances.  He'll be busy for a decade analyzing every time Robert Plant's voice cracked between 1972 and 1977.

I envision Greg to look like Sam Jones from the Flash Gordon movie.

Plus to have your own keyboard named after you?  The Gregsynth?  He's gotta be awesome!!!!

======================

I think I've found the best Freddie vocal--but I'm still trying to find the worst (though I have it narrowed down)! My quest will never come to an end!

I'll take your advice--I already studied their Live Aid performance! I could write an essay about that performance (and I went insane listening to the performance)!

You're welcome! Without the Queen fans and the subscribers--my channel would be nothing. It's awesome posting everything, and having people comment on the songs!

Haha. Sam Jones is a million times better looking than me. The only thing in common, is that we are both blonde!

Both the 80s reunions were dreadful ... steer clear.

Zeppelin were masters of their craft between 70-74, and had shades of brilliance after that.  Live, I'd say their peak was 71-73 (although Plant's voice was already starting to go by late 72).

The mid 90's Plant/Page made up for their 80's debacles.  There's a show (Hartford, I think) where they threw down a Black Dog that literally kicks the shit out of anything they did in the 70's.  Much to my effing regret, I didn't download this while it was still on Youtube, and now I don't have it.  :(

Hey Sir GH/Real Wizard, I finished my analyses for Zeppelin's Live Aid performance! Would you like to see it? :)
