Also you can prepare and stabilize your voice at any age, it would take considerable work and training though. If Axl wanted he could go work with a vocal coach for a few months learn essentially how to sing again and learn how to Mai Tai his upper register, bring back (some of) the body he'x lost from his voice and sing with his trademark rasp without killing himself. He does need to be taking bigger breaks between shows though. 2 in a row is a bad idea for a band playing over 1.5hrs each night. Gnr do 3.5hrs a lot of the time... It's not a great plan! I literally don't think he can use that classic rasp anymore, not without straining so hard he blows it out. Its gone, RIP. You can't stablise something that left the building already. His high clean vocals are there still but has been steadily getting more thin and slowly the top end has been getting more ropey. His voice just has wear and tear, and no amount of training is going to make his voice suddenly back to even 2016 levels. Each tour seems to make it that little bit more ropey, especially at the start and he is having to strain so hard to reach higher notes. Rather than just hoping one day it will come back (and spoilers, at age 60 wear and tear doesn't improve) it would be much wiser for Axl to take a different approach, particularly outside the hits. Sure use his higher voice for the classic hits that all the casuals expect as best as he can and save it for those moments (Jungle scream, high SCOM sections, etc) Edited July 3, 2022 by koldbeer2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
