Re: Coverdale vs. Hughes, then and now.


I saw them both this summer within two weeks of each other. Coverdale has the rock god persona down, and his stage presence is unbelievable.

Vocally, though, its not even close. Hughes' voice is in absolute top notch shape, on pitch, no caterwauling. When Coverdale sings in the lower ranges, he's as good as ever. But in the upper ranges, it was very rough.

Upper ranges were never Coverdales cup of tea.The time of his peak is over and I do believe that GH's voice nowadays is in a much better condition than DC's.
When I think about David,I see the man from the early eighties and he was the strongest,voice-physicaly-wise.When David did his screams in Mistreated or other emotional intense tunes,then he was the loudest.

High pitch is one way,but take note of Gillan with Black Sabbath,in particular"Hot Line"notice his use of high register and then his use of low register in the same
section.
Absolutely UNMATCHED anywhere by anyone in the history of rock.

Let me demonstrate if you will.

Toward the end of the song just before,

take me to the river and drink my WINE
take me to the river and drink my WINE
take me to the river and drink my WINE
take me a take me a take me DOWN

The low and high variation is off the scale and as I said before cannot be matched by any singer IN ROCK HISTORY(.)

I don't think so,Paul Rogers BLOWS HIM AWAY ANYDAY.

You also need to do more listeng on a whole,
to hear the beauty in Gillan's voice and his use of emotion.
He can often fool the listener into thinking he is just wailing. emoticon
