Post Question for Auslander
Is Darryl Hall the best all-around singer You've ever worked with? I understand if it's not professional to answer, but if you can I'm legitimately curious. To my ears, that guy has pipes for days.

You just used curious, guy and pipes in the same paragraph. I think you like pee-pees.

Fair enough question.

Has anyone watched Live From Daryl's House? I'm curious if it's worth checking out.

If he answers "no" and says Geoff Tate does, you won't even be able to count the number of erections this board will be sporting.

Dude....Neil deserves more than a couple days to respond (if he indeed chooses to respond to this at all) as he is a busy guy, and as a genuine legend on this board, he deserves more respect than a quick "I guess I don't get an answer" post.

Rocky can get all the love you send.... j/k :evil:

...IMO Darryl Hall is a wonderful vocalist and probably ranks up there with many of the top tier of singers that Auslander has recorded.

:cheers:

It's fantastic. The episodes with Eli Reed and Billy Gibbons are fantastic.

Suppose I should check out Hall & Oates. I only know a couple of the singles and figured they were just another early 80's pop act.

I've been very fortunate to have worked with a lot of excellent singers, and Daryl is certainly among the best of those. I also worked with Steve Walsh, John Elefante and Michael Bolton, to name a few, all of them great singers in their own right. Michael Bolton's voice was quite astonishingly strong and his range very wide indeed.

As far as hard rock / metal vocalists go, Geoff Tate is definitely among the most talented I've worked with. Again, like Michael, he had a very wide range.

Generally though, the bigger thing for me is the song. Having a song that is really strong, and that being sung by someone who can really do it justice - that's where the true synergy lies.

With H&O, their songs were so well crafted and fit the guys voices like a glove, so that it was a perfect combination really. I was very fortunate indeed to have the opportunity to work with them.

They started working together in 1970 I believe. The first album of the three that I did with them was the 10th album they released.

Thanks Auslander! I'm a little surprised to here that about Tate.

I have so many questions or him, but I don't want to bother him.

Auslaner - he is mighty.

Fuck it, I'll ask one question. Hopefully he reads and responds.

What album, in your opinion, has the best Hard Rock/Metal snare sound?

My favorites are AC/DC - Back In Black and Warrior Soul - Last Decade,Dead Century

Please don't worry about asking questions - I'm always happy to help. It might just take me a bit of time to see the post and reply.

I do like the BiB snare. It's been ages since I heard any Warrior Soul - I'll have to revisit those albums to refresh my memory.

Some of my favourites would include Metallica's Black Album, quite a few snares from other Mutt Lange productions, which might include Pyromania, Hysteria, the Cars album "Heartbeat City" etc.

I've always loved snares that have a lot of body as well as a lot of "crack", and Mutt's snares (or perhaps I should say Mike Shipley's and Nigel Green's snares) always had elements of both. On Dokken's ULaK I think we came close to that sort of sound.

Another favourite snare sound of mine isn't on a hard rock or metal album, but instead is on a jazz/fusion album, George Duke's "From Me to You" - that snare sound still kills me. Also, James Gadson's snare on several Bill Withers songs (Lovely Day, for example) comes to mind. Really full, with a lot of crack in the high end.

Checked out the Warrior Soul snare - classic Geoff Workman (an old friend of mine, RIP bless him). Has similarities to old Twisted Sister and Motley Crue, which he also worked on.

agreed….the drums sound, heck the entire production on that record is remarkable. it's heavy as a ton-of-bricks while being simultaneously "airy" and "clean". I'm unsure of how else to articulate it.
