it really could be. everything is more fake todayI believe its more common then we realize.
dayum. i do love fair bands too though lol.I see a lot of acts at my local state fair...
Im able to really get up close and personal, due to small crowds, and no seating near the stage...
Im not going to mention any names, but I was up close watching my favorite 3 piece band, and Id swear on a stack of bibles, lip synching was going on.
I was LaGrange....I mean ... I was deranged!
It's not just today.it really could be. everything is more fake today
that it was even just a yr ago.
thing is, with the box that gene and paul have painted Kiss
into over the decades, it goes against everything they ever
presented themselves as being.
kinda reminds me of metallica swearing they would never
ever go commercial. what happened?
It's not just today.
You know how much classic Ozzy concert footage is overdubbed in the studio later? He can't sing live for shit for more than about 1/2 a verse.
although, I've seen plenty of concerts w/ some sort of sequenced/backing tracks. Those players all have to play to a click track, or, at minimum the drummer, but, when the drums go out you need someone keeping on the metronome, so it sync's back up when the drums come back in.To me, any use of backing anything is pathetic.
As a sometimes weekend warrior, we might not have perfect harmonies, miss the odd line, chord, etc.
But at least it is honest.
I loved the guy onstage- amazing frontman, but (at least in the time period I saw him) an awful singer. I have a feeling DLR was like Vince Neil, Gary Barden, and a few others- good for one or two big albums and a tour, and their voice went to shit after.What? David Lee Roth?
At least he doesn't even try. Just sings off or squaks when he should be singing.
I'm unable to have a strong feeling about that. For one, KISS has never been a favorite of mine, for two, they're getting older and probably their voices aren't quite what they once were, and for three, they would insist on the show being as picture perfect, sound quality included, as is possible.
For these reasons I just accept it for what it is. I would not be thrilled nor would I be demanding my money back. It'd be more of an "Oh well, they did what they did" moment for me.
It's not like the Milli Vanilli fiasco, where the two main guys (Fab and Rob?...kind of guessing there...) never actually sang their own stuff from the beginning. They hired other vocalists and lip synched ALL of their shows with canned vocal tracks. (Maybe all tracks...but definitely the vocals.)
Lip synching to your own recorded content just doesn't seem to be a sin on the same level.
We all get old, unfortunatelyin Pauls credit, probably one of rocks best if not THEE BEST front man ever.
at one time.
