John, knowing that you gave up smoking a few years back, before you did, or since what vocal teaching or before preps do you do, I would think that before some shows your voice, throat or health play a part in how things go or are you able to change these to get what you are trying to achieve.I know that some days my voice is rubbish, ie not being able to hold a note, or hit certain notes, dont forget I am not a professional so it might just be me. anyway whatever problems you do occur and concour I see very little difference between the times I have seen you, best health.

Good question Mike.  I would love to get Johan's take on that.  I am a vocalist, and to me singing has always been very psychological. I find the less I warm up before a performance, the stronger my voice feels. Your thoughts Johan? Glad your feeling well! God Bless!

I have often thought that if he continued to smoke there is no way he could sound like he does today.

I listened to KC Red recently, and his voice is much better today than it was back then.  He was so young then, and to sound better today really says alot.

The Asia stuff is quite challenging, so if his voice dropped off a bit you would hear it.

Something like Cutting it fine could be real tough with a smokers voice.

Good ?

Yes,you're right Dave,smoking is #1 villain--I quit in '91. I don't do exercises,and sound check tells me what's goin' on in the larynx.I'm super paranoid about people sneezing,smoking,coughing,hawking,gobbing etc,especially when I'm gigging

O-kee, then...if it's popular in Jersey, it must be kosher, eh?

But, tell me, Boz, what does it MEEAAAANNN?

Yay, I'm so happy to read the boys will be on British TV!  I wish I could see it.  Behave, guys, or at least try really hard.  And, erm, no "gobbing," whatever it may be.  It sounds viscous, though, which can't be good...
