(Rightful) jokes about my register-telling abilities aside, what do you guys think about Brad's higher register? Personally I'd black most of those notes.
Btw I hear a B5 in the harmonies under the G5 in "More Than a Feeling", I guess it could be an illusion though.

I really don't think it's possible to sing such high notes with chest voice Razz they do sound really full, but I think they are head voice or falsetto screams. in "more than a feeling" for example, some are clear falsettos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fm_-sW4Vktw 2.20
I'd blue all notes from G5 and higher

Nope.
We aren't basing our register verdicts on pitch anymore. The "they sound really full" part is much more important than the "I really don't think it's possible to sing such high notes with chest voice" part, plus our blackness is now based on how consistent with the tone of the rest of a singer's range the notes are.
Chances are Brad's super-high notes are head voice, but they sound totally consistent ("blended") with the rest of his range, so why not count them as the same "unit of voice"? Might not be modal, but it's definitely black (=consistent).

Wait...are you questioning third octaves in chest? Because that is possible I can hit a D3 easily in chest.

Those are probably not chest, but sustained head voiced notes. There are men who can hit sixth octave black notes usually forms of tenor...I can't do better than A5 like Dio and Halford. Here black notes are usually sustained chest, mix, and head voiced notes.
