He was very theatrical. His whole persona. His singing. You can visualize the bleeding pathos whenever you hear him sing. But hey, that's fine if you like that kinda stuff. I like it in some songs, and not so much in others. I absolutely abhor it in others. But yeah, Freddie was a great singer. Just not as great as some will have it, in my never humble opinion.
Objectivelly speaking, as far as we can quantifiably measure voices, Axl was the better singer. He had the widest range and could both sing lower and higher than Freddie. There might be other metrics that I don't know of, though.
Subjectivelly speaking, most people would say they preferred the tonal qualities of Freddie's voice. He had purer notes. Axl has a scraggy rock voice. Freddie was more classically trained. His voice didn't jar with people, generally speaking. Axl's squeaking is hated by many. But that is entirely subjective.
@Silverburst80 that would be incredible actually, I wish he would set up some format and do just as you said. Even some educational segments.
I looked on twitter when he was putting up some videos which was cool, I'm sure you saw this
