Here is my opinion on his singing and playing. To be honest, he does have some performances where he fails at singing, but he is drunk, so what can you really expect from that, and he should probably stop drinking before concerts. When he is not drunk, he sounds great and his voice is awesome. In some concerts, like the Down concert and the Stay Together For The Kids, he is really amazing and proves he can sing. He really sounds beautiful when he is not drunk or is actually giving his best. His guitar playing is almost always awesome, he can play from some of the softest to some of the hardest guitar playing ever. Honestly, I like his voice, not a lot of people sound like him. That raspy, whiny high pitched voice, I love it. He is a good person, he just needs to drop the habit of drinking too much, luckily he stopped doing drugs, but he is overall a good person that never wants to intent to hurt anyone. - AnimeDrawer
Deserves to be high on the list. He created his own way of playing the guitar and he makes such good guitar riffs. definitely the best. - AnimeDrawer
