gno Posted January 21, 2012 Share Posted January 21, 2012 Well I think Ken sings with thicker folds than f.ex. Lou Gramm. Lou has just about perfect vocal fold thickness at all times. I think that Ken sometimes has them slightly too thick, at least for me taste. Kind of like BB King does, if I can remember correctly. I agree - I personally wouldn't sing it that heavy, but I'm not trying to criticize him. I think it's a taste thing, and it's his interpretation and his choice to be heavier. I know he can sing extremely light up there too as I've got his exercise material and I learned how to sing very lightly up there from his stuff. The other thing is that way up there I think Plant uses CVT creaking which sounds screamy up in that range, and is very efficient, and can be done with lighter registration. I think ken is using slightly different distortion technique which is suited for heavier, thicker folds. Being able to belt way up there with a thicker sound and distortion is a feat in itself which I have to give him credit for. That's not easy.
