I know we've had discussions on Deen Castronovo before, but I guess I never really paid attention. Holy Sh*t!!! I can't decide if this makes me wanna quit singing, re-evaluate everything or keep on keepin' on. Mein Gott...watch how effortless this is...oh...and HE'S PLAYING DRUMS:

Footnote to this post:

{I found the Deen video because I was bored and going through some old posts from the "Sensai Steve" and found where Bob(Video) had a YT link to the insane Steve Perry version in Houston '81...I have a feeling this will be blacked-out everywhere but the US}

Deen is great. One of the nicest, most humble guys in the business. I am the biggest Steve Perry fanatic on the planet, but I think Deen does as great a job on Mother Father as Steve did.

I told a story here not long ago of two fans who accused Deen of lip-synching at one of Journey's shows. (they made some sort of gesture, and Deen saw it) Deen had his sister arrange for them to go backstage, and Deen sang for them face to face. They apologized profusely.

Oh, and I have a feeling you were just kidding, but no, never let something like this push you into quitting. Instead, let it inspire.

It was total hyperbole, but thanks for the encouragement :)

Yeah...I tried finding it last night, but couldn't pull up anything with the search. I don't know why I wasn't more impressed at the time, but man I'm blown away by Deen. Being able to bang the hell out of the drums while singing so effortlessly is astounding. People talk about efficiency in singing...he takes it to a whole new level.

Here's another guy who can sing and play drums, too.

He was originally an actor, who could play drums. He joined Genesis as a drummer. Then lead singer Peter Gabriel left for a solo career and Phil was "drafted" into singing.

I think we all know the feeling. You don't really want to quit (how could you, you love it!) but sometimes you see so much talent that it's a shocking realisation of yourself and where you stand!

analog, (nowadays) i believe that's not as hard as we think. not saying it dosen't take work, (please don't get me wrong) but not as hard as we think. it's a technique just any other technique (only nowadays) i feel this way. it's a placement/support technique.

here's dean again

Bob,

I was just blown away by the drumming and singing.

Also..check out Jonpall's thread on "Minimum volume" where we're discussing this lighter mass/thin fold rock belt type sound.
