I was actually just thinking of making a thread for him myself! Nice finds anyway, though I can think of a few additions/corrections off the top of my head. For starters, I don't think the E♭5s and F♯5s in "Back to School" are him, and the F♯5 in "Wiped Out" sounds like more of an F5 to me. However, that weird-ass laugh at the beginning of "Wiped Out" sounds like it actually gets all the way up to A5. He also hits a legit F♯5 in "Trouble Walkin'" and an E♭5 in this live version of "Shock Me", as well as some talky G2s in "Dark Light".

Where's the G2 in "A Little Below the Angels" anyway? The lowest I heard in that song was D3.

Oh, and another thing - "Breakout", "Calling to You", "Time Ain't Runnin' Out", "Fallen Angel", and "It's Over Now" aren't sung by Frehley. The notes that you have those songs listed for are all hit by Tod Howarth. Nice highs on that fellow, though. Might be worth making a thread for him if he turns out to have any lows.

Thanx for the information, mate. I've deleted all the wrong song titles. But there is a real non - sung G2 in "A little below the angel" in a dialogue between Ace and a girl. And there is an F♯5 in "Wiped out" anyway. Tiphat

Decent for a starting thread. Here's some formatting tips to make it look puuuuuuurty

1. For colors, instead of using the color from the color grid, replace the hexadecimal number with the color you want.
ex: [color=#0066ff ][/color ] <- some random color
[color=blue ][/color ] <- the color blue everyone uses
Also, it's more customary, at least here, to denote backing vocals as either purple or underlined, while blue is used for clearly soft falsetto. However, feel free to use whatever color scheme you want.

2. Put each section of notes in parentheses; it allows readers to clearly distinguish the note sections easier.
ex: F4: ("Songs about sex", "more songs about sex" live 2014 @your mom's basement)

3. Try making a list for the notes section to further make it clearer.
ex:
High Notes:
  • E69: ("dogs are cute", "Hitler was a Sensitive Man")
  • F4: ("Our God is an Awesome God")

You sure about that? Cause I'm still seeing the "Back to School" E♭5s and F♯5s that aren't him (as well as C♯5s from that song that don't actually exist as far as I can tell), as well as a number of those songs that I previously mentioned were sung by Tod Hogarth. Might wanna read my post a bit more closely.

Haven't checked too many of the other songs listed, but it looks like you could use some help with pitching in general too, because just from a glance I can confirm that there's also no C♯3 in "A Little Below the Angels" and nothing remotely close to B♭2 in "Back to School". Also, the "Dark Light" G2s are still missing, along with the "Trouble Walkin'" F♯5 and the F5 and A5 from "Wiped Out".

Where?

and yeah, I'd strongly recommend listening to cryszofthescots's suggestions for thread formatting as well.

I know I'm actually a big Kiss fan, and Forever actually gave me more respect for ballads while I developed my C5 off Paul. XD I don't like the greedy side of him is all. I meant in a tongue-in-cheek way that if it is an obvious tenor note then it's probably Paul if some vocal piece because isn't Gene like an obvious Baritone? But, that's Kiss material. By the way, I do have a question more related to the notes you have. Are the F3s really that significant to his voice? Just asking because I don't usually see anything higher than an E3 for lows.

And those are only the notes that aren't Ace; I'm hardly even bothering to try to correct the notes you mispitched at this point. Dunno how many more times I'm gonna have to repeat myself before you finally get the message about either of them.
