Ah, you seemingly have recognized that this band has a decent vocalist.




I always said that Romero is "ok" - but very generic. Good in Dio stuff, acceptable in Bonnet/ JLT songs, weaker in Gillan stuff.



I actually agree that RR is a bit generic ,i dont feel he has a uniqueness to his voice like Gillan,RJD or DC had .But hes most certainly not weaker than the Ian Gillan of today on the Gillan material.



Gillan still blows him away in his material.

Pretty difficult to 'blow someone away' when you're constantly out of breath...

 emoticon
Whilst this is amusing, it is also very true of IG and his current singing abilities. He is nearly always in tune, but his breathing during a song is really poor. This is the problem on the few occasions these days when the band play a fast tune (Fireball for example), IG can't keep up and ends up out of breath. He then starts trying to catch up and inevitably becomes more out of breath and starts missing out lines/verses of the song.
If he agreed to work with a vocal coach these issues could be resolved, but of course we know that he won't.

Of course. emoticon

For a serious note I'd say that both - Romero and Gillan - have difficulties with the Mk II material, for different reasons. So for me, the best solution is listening to Romero singing the Coverdale, Dio and Turner stuff.

Whilst i don't think that the Gillan tracks that RR is asked to sing with Rainbow sound particularly good with Ronnie singing [sign in to see URL] me its simply because they are hugely iconic tracks that require the vocal talents of an Ian Gillan in his prime to sound [sign in to see URL] I've stated before Gillan for me at his prime in the 70s was the greatest rock singer of them all .Sadly its a long long time since Ian himself could do justice to those particular tracks especially CIT and [sign in to see URL] are kidding yourself on when you say Gillan blows anyone away these days he is one of the ultimate examples of being past it sadly.

I´m talking about songs they both do together at the present times. Gillan does them MUCH better. Actually, I was pretty disappointed by Romero in IG songs. But to be honest at present times the best Child In Time in DP family is sang by Carl Sentance.
