    But... Footage gives us the higher ground. We aren't blinded by emotion etc
    just because we were there. We can watch over and over, and pick out the flaws.

    Dave was a vocal freak from about 1978-1980. But he didn't take care of his instrument. Listen to bootlegs from 1978 and 1979 especially, and anyone saying "Dave could never sing" is out of their fucking minds. But, those that say he still sounds good are out of their fucking minds as well.

    Both can be true.

    Plain and simple, DLR was a great vocalist live and in studio at the beginning of his career, but the partying and smoking took its toll.

    Yeah it was all '90s-on except for the very last 2 songs, which is unbelievably strange for a video showcasing Dave's vocal talents because that's when it started going downhill. Like doing an Ed compilation of his playing in '04 and the Sacred Sin songs.

    I liked Dave back in the day. Saw him once with VH in 1984.

    Axl Rose had a wider range than Dave. Both have the same problem now, like many other rock singers. I wouldn’t pay $1 to see either one of them perform today.

    In fairness, they aren’t the only two. Not by a long shot!
    Would you pay to see this guy?

    I wouldn’t go see Mötley Crüe if you paid me to go see them. I wouldn’t waste two seconds of my time with that shit.

    Dave does have (or did, depending on who's arguing) incredible range, but I think it's his mid range that was always the best sounding and the one that fit his style the most. I think his super low singing sounds a bit contrived and his upper register singing is grating. But give me him belting out Beautiful Girls, Ice Cream Man, etc. all day long and I'll tell you how great he is.

    Unfortunately it's his mid range that he's seemingly lost the most.

    That is unfortunately real.

    Mainly due to the fact he's so fat now he can't sing a whole line without getting out of breath.

    I kinda like the fact that Vince is fat, looks like shit, knows it, yet doesn't care.

    In his prime, he looked great, boned 13 million chicks, and snorted everything
    under the sun.

    But today, he most likely enjoys eating, drinking and sleeping.
