Title: Who has lost their voice
Post by: Walkerman on February 09, 2018, 10:25:57 PM
We know that as you age, your singing voice loses range ... unless you are Paul McCartney. 
Which singers have lost the most.
I would nominate Paul Simon and Elton John.

Why? Did you find one? I could use it if it's better than the one I have. Actually, my voice is better than it's ever been. I've lost some range but gained some resonance and can use what I have to better effect.

Just turned 68 and I notice I don't have the voice I once had.  I was never what you'd call a great singer to begin with but I've lost quite a bit over the past couple of years.  As a result I don't enjoy singing as much these days.

Take Leonard Cohen. You could certainly argue that, while he lost a lot of range, he became a much better singer.

Actually, I am referring to famous singers, not forumites.

McCartney still sings awfully well for someone who's lost his voice. "New" is a very good album. But what do you have against forumites?  :wink:

I lost mine last month when I had the flu.

Mrs TLP2 noted that it was a huge improvement.   :laughin:

And, for the record, I never was a famous singer.

Actually, I specifically mentioned McCartney has not lost his voice.  I have nothing against forumites, but since I havenít heard them sing over the years, their voices are moot to me, at least as regards my question.  I am more curious about which famous artists have lost, or maintained, their voices.

OK, I'll be good.
Just a couple of not-losts (in my opinion):

Johnny Cash (My Mother's Hymn Book)
Neil Young (A Letter Home)

and of course,
the Lost and Found Award must go to:

Levon Helm (Dirt Farmer).

OH.  And kinda recently saw David Crosby for the "Lighthouse" album tour.
He's still got it!

Just kind of pulling your leg a little Steve. You`re too easy and way too serious sometimes.  :cheers
