Yeah, I know of Callas. That makes 6.

Blakey and then I'm struggling mate.
I have hereby demonstrated that Heston's citation of Caruso is unremarkable. I rest my case.

I just pulled a name out of the air to be honest, I know the square root of fuck all about opera.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

The two of them arguing about anything would be a perfect bowl of popcorn. Music, food, film … it'd be an Abbott & Costello routine.

The best part is I actually like Heston's music, despite the unbridgeable gulf between us on other aesthetic matters.

Like the time you made me listen to Swans and you had to listen to 2 hours of KISS? Sweet memories....

Good times. I got to exercise my snark muscles and you were tortured by some great music that was outside your tastes. I won both rounds. Which is all that really matters.

Axl sounds like a parrot with its balls caught in a vice.
Ha! I used to describe Sebastian Bach's voice as having his nuts in a vice. Really, tho, he had a generic metal singer's screech.
Yuck. I think there have been some great metal singers - Rob Halford comes to mind...but hair metal produced some truly awful singers. More about image and how you looked in tight trousers than how well you could sing.
I thought Ronnie James Dio was a good rock singer but never had much decent material to work with bar one Rainbow album. I loved Bon Scott's voice but he was another who wasn't technically great, just a very odd, lustful sounding voice.
I'll have to agree with Heston once again.

I've been primed by Music From the Elder so I could be ready for it.
