He sings medley of We Are the Champions, Somebody to Love, Tie Your Mother Down, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and We Will Rock You.
What do you guys think of this guy? Does the video deserve the title "how to sing like F.M."?
Personally I think he sounds very Freddie like in some places, but overall he is too raspy and husky. Maybe fitting for example The Miracle songs.
His high notes are very good!
Like someone youtuber replied: "Freddie with a cold" :D
Yes it's a Ken Tamplin video. There's also more these "how to sing like" videos, he has covered Steve Perry, Brian Johnson, Bruno Mars, Robert Plant etc, some are good some aren't, usually mixed comments from youtubers.
Like Bad Seed and AdamMethos mentioned, his thing is the technique, not the sound.
Ken is obviously a very good singer who has mastered the technique of head voice / mix. The only issue is that his voice isn't really suited for Queen. Especially pre 82 Queen. Nevertheless, he performs excellent renditions with the voice he has.
Ken also sells singing lessons, in fact these How to sing like vids are only there for marketing those lessons. I love singing, but I have huge reservations about any "taped" lessons. Without an instructor to hear what you're doing, you run a good risk of ruining what you had before starting.
Ken Tamplin is the only other Christian Rock performer I've listened to other than Marc/Downhere (much more 'rock' in his performances, however ;))
This, with JSS (and Howie Simon) - I love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAnW6tnKOBs
You can always manually wrap it in bbcode, as in "[ url=yourlinkhere ] yourlinkorcustomtexthere [ /url]". Just remove the spaces.
It's quite a feat that this forum goes on considering how broken it is, both technically and in other regards.
