Being a singer,here's my take: JJ has a great tone and great voice,hands down. I'd have to agree about him trying to sing the Perry material,even tho it's perhaps a half step higher than Jimi's range. When you're up in that register tho--a half step can mean EVERYthing. What is difficult for singers with a higher tenor range is keeping that tonal quality going. Unless of course your natural talking voice is up there like Jon Anderson or even Steven Tyler,of course. From my vantage point, I can sing Bon Scott w/o much difficulty (and he had a high range). But to get the TONE quality of a Perry/Jamison,etc is quite another feat. We've always tuned a half step down for Journey songs so I could get a better tone and a few others that were difficult guitar-wise in the album keys. It finally got easier on everyone to just drop everything a half step and be done with it. But most def huge kudos to any power singer with that higher register range--that's a very nice gift to have. JJ certainly is blessed with it and still sounds great at his age espescially! so glad he's still releasing music,and this lyrical bent is quite the touchy subject indeed.. T
