His voice has great upper 4th and lower 5th octave belts, the timbre on some of the 5th octave stuff (like the D5s and Eb5s) is quite odd, and what i`ve discovered is that voice lost quite some range by `93 -`09 He most of the time sticked around G#4 - A4 and when he went higher he sounded strained whilst he (From `76 - `88) sounded very comfortable around the Bb4 - C5 area. And his timbre changed drasticly over the last 20 years.

His last album ("Because i love you")  released in 2009 has his vocal range limited some more, he stays away (For the most part) of high 4th octave notes, he strains alot on them and he seems to be comfortable around F4-G4 nowadays, he seems to be more comfortable around lower 3rd octave notes though.

On the song "Cant Take It" He sounds very unstable vocal wise, his voice cracks multiple times, and he sounds very tired on this song.

This might be the most fun cover of the song i`ve seen/listened to in a long time.


They transposed the song down 3 semitones... From C Sharp to B flat.
