Lightbulb Glenn's Voice

I was just listening to the Medusa album, 'your love is alright' in particular. During the latter point of the song, Glenn's voice goes extremely high and gritty, which leads me to my question. How do you feel Glenn's voice has changed throughout the years? or hasn't changed for that matter?

I fell that Gleen's voice has gained a lot more body and is sounding more full than it did in the Trapeze/DP days that's a natural change in anyone's voice as we get older, still he manages to hit every single note he'd hit in his early records! that's what blows my mind, not only his register hasn't changed, his notes are sounding stronger and fuller than ever and on top of that, the man has the most AMAZING melodic taste for choosing notes and enriching any harmony. that's THE VOICE OF ROCK!

Do you think he follows any regimen, or has he just got it

Definitely both! As he's said before; no drugs, booze or ciggies! And the key element... lots of sleep before a gig (at least 8 hours). Post gig partying is kept at a minimum.. usually just the last night of a tour!

If you mean in the "bad ol' days"... then it was pure talent with a dash of devils' dandruff but today, it's what I mentioned above

Interesting post and yes it has matured and I agree with David. Glenn is a true professional who looks after himself. It's the only wayto perform at this level, particularly on the road.

The Voice through the years...

I think that the first real change in Glenn's voice is readily evident when you listen to "Medusa" and then put on "You Are The Music". Granted, the rather thin production on "Medusa" doesn't flatter his voice (or the instruments for that matter) but within the space of a year or so, his voice had acquired all these different shades that are obvious on tracks like "What Is A Woman's Role" and "Will Our Love End"....not so much a greater range but almost a jazzer's phrasing on..you guessed it, one of my all time faves, "Good Love".

"Play Me Out" was streets away from the Purple sound and his voice reflects that; far less of the over the top delivery of the later Purple days and the soul man within steps out in fine style....

I just feel that it is a true gift that he can sing with the range and power of a much younger man....We have heard enough singers out there who, like aging pitchers, are singing knuckleballs....

Bring on Black Country Communion!!!

oh totally, I'm 21 and every older singer I seek guidance from stresses vocal longevity. I do about an hour a day of scales and breathing and all that jazz, and it can be a bit of a bummer, but I'd rather sound like glenn than say, gillan or coverdale or plant these days.

Well whatever it is he does to get there with his voice - I said to him last night that I wished I could put his voice in a bottle and drink it just like Ursula did with the Little Mermaid!

Without intending to advocate Glenn's use of illicit substances I certainly don't think they impaired his voice at all. I think 'This Time Around' is his finest hour!!

I just happen to prefer Glenn's voice when he was in the Trapeze the first time around. It had an earthy rawness to it that he used to great effect. Saying that, he's probably a better singer now, with more strings to his bow, but timbre is always a personal thing. For example, Phil Collins is undoubtedly a good singer but I can't stand the sound coming out his mouth! But in many ways, Glenn's voice is as good now as it ever was, and he's pretty unique in that respect when you look at how many of the vocalist 'gods' are completely off the mark now. We all know who they are...

Toward the end of "PUSH" Glenn preludes into that 3 octave jump. It is diaphragm, not falsetto. HOW !! I have always thought it crosses over to sound the the high end lead notes on a guitar! AMAZED by that still today!
