He sings the riff of "Sunshine of Your Love" in VH1s "100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs". I remember pitching a really strong C#2.

I'm curious about the spoken sections at 0:48-1:05 and 4:12-4:30 (pitchshifting occurs thereafter), for awhile I didn't think he went any lower than E2 but in retrospect it seems he gets quite a bit lower (possibly B1?):

Can anyone pitch "Sister Midnight" from The Idiot?

Seems to be low 2nd octave to me (possible C2?)

There are some really high notes in Open up and Bleed which is one of his best songs anyway.

I know Lux Interiors voice and he can't go that low so I guarantee ya'll it's Iggy hitting those if there's any doubt. Sounds like Iggy and not Lux too.
