Justice was restored for Mike Patton who overtook Axl Rose of Guns n’ Roses the other week as the greatest vocalist in modern music* by Vintage Vinyl Music’s assessment. Don’t ask me who will be crowned next week, but it will be a tall order to beat the hardest working man** in metal-rock-noise-weird-sounds!

The people who know have Patton down as able to sing 6 octaves, 1/2 note (Eb1 to E7), which is just above Corey Taylor of Slipknot on 5 octaves, 5-1/2 notes (Eb1 to C7).

Alas, this gives me ample opportunity to dust off some Patton fronted tunes for the listening public until the new king or queen is crowned. Or this might just be another excuse to talk about Mike Patton, you be the judge!

* Still as @ 10 June 2014. Apologies if Google serves this page to you for the next 5 years – it ain’t my fault if they haven’t updated their algorithms.

** Just ask to see the stamps on his passport, I believe he travels to Australia every 12 months on a tour of some kind. Note: This is not a complaint, more is better!

About noisynoodle

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
