Kaye from Alabama Most of the the lead singers for Journey since and including Steve Perry, have 'blown out' their voices. There's very few men, and women that can continue to sing with such a wide range for 300+ gigs a year, practice, warm ups, and recording. Freddie Mercury, if he were still with us ( but, his range had a lot to do with cultural, and religious exposure), and Micky Thomas best known for Jefferson Starship, now just Starship, and his first hit, Fooled Around and Fell in love, still has the range and power he had in the '70 when he was playing with my husband in local bands in N. Florida, S. Georgia. To name 2. Pat Benetar, classically trained, Ann Wilson, classically trained. Now, look up Tommy Shaw's version of 'Open Arms' That is on a copulation tribute album. You might just be impressed. Digging ditches is damn hard dirty work. Going on stage, whether you feel like it or not, cold, flu, stomach virus, migraine headache, strep throat, And performing like you feel absolutely wonderful and so very happy to be there, when you would rather be lying on the stage trying not to die, is the hardest job in the world. I work as a gardener, landscaping, basically ditch digging, and I am no where near exhausted, sick, and basically insane as I was when touring and singing with several well known bands and performers. I was a trained lyric soprano that learned to sing rock and some pop and country. Now my range is quite a bit lower than it was.
Jim from Long Beach, CaGregg Rolie, The American Paul Carrack, he sings on hits for other bands(Journey/Santana) but remains faceless..Great voice and keyboard player..
Dodge from Casper, WyGregg Rolie, though somehow not the most recognizable face of the two bands, founded and was the original singer for both supergroups Santana and Journey. He is the co-lead vocalist here, though he is the clear and recognizable singer on the timeless Santana smash Black Magic Woman.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
