I thought that by the standards of TRP he was going to be classified here as a low tenor but yeah i totally agree about HB.
I was just listening to gethsemane and he fucking rips that G5 away holy shit amazing even knowing it is falsetto who cares, sounds so powerfull, never heard of this guy before, lol, i'm going to take a serious closer look into Jesuschrist Superstar, the nigger one is also great.

You make it sound like falsetto is less 'true' than full voice. Popcorn

Anyway, yes, give JCS a shot. It features some incredible singing, and the newer versions are EVEN BETTER!

Orange for the "Men Of War" E5s, really? They sound just like the rest of his falsetto screams to me. I can definitely pick out a few orange-sounding notes in that song, but they're all B4s or so. He's pretty clearly in falsetto by the time he gets to dem E5s.

Of course Ian is the best...he was what kept Ritchie there...when he left..Purple went to shit...David Coverdale...made it too popish...not a good thing...and Glen...an amazing bassist and singer...but purple...with him? No, Ian, John, and Ritchie are the true Deep Purple...

Yeah it wasn't really poppy at all when Coverdale joined, don't know where you got that from. I suppose one could argue that Stormbringer and Come taste the Band in their funk/soul ways were more commercial approaches at the time they came out, but they would still hardly be considered poppy in a musical sense (though I know it is a slightly vague term).
