the 80s weren't the 60s, but they still had way more variety in their top 40 than today.

Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting. There was still in early 80s continuity w/ CounterCulture, & a wondering of what / which Style & Culture might emerge...There were still maybe Labels headed by people interested in Music - & soon there'd be MTV & transition into now in which beancounters run everything??...

A friend of mine sang/screamed a lot - nothing like Jim's intensity though - and ended up tearing his throat. So how does Jim still do it...???

well, a teen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am
Jack Mello:

cool, cecile!
Avatar 11:14am

Well, I dunno. John might have had a lot of throat surgery over the years, or just knew how to take care of his voice. It is a mystery.
Avatar 11:15am

Great kid. Just hungry for knowledge of all underground bands.
Avatar 11:17am

John Brannon practiced gargling razor blades. that was his trick.
