Post Let's give a big thumbs up to Mr. Chuck Billy
Been listening to several live performances by Testament and I have to say that Chuck's voice is usually top notch. Moreover compared to his contemporaries (Hetfield, Mustaine, etc.) he still sounds pretty much the way he did on the albums. I guess some of it has to do with his vocal style..
Plus, he seems like a genuine cool dude who really enjoys performing.

He's what Hetfield should sound like these days, had the castration not occurred on or about 1990.

I think Mustaine is the only one who sounds somewhat poor these days. Most of these thrash singers still sound really good.

Great vocalist and a commanding frontman. I've always liked how effortlessly he is able to combine cleans and the death vocals. :beer:

The only vocalist I know with his own air guitar picks.

Thumbs up from me-- have seen them 7 times-- 3 times with the "classic" line up, once with the Alvelais/Bostaph line up, and most recently 3 times with Digorgio/Hoglan-- and Chuck has always delivered.

Somewhat related to Chuck Billy - I still have PTSD after hearing them mic check "check 1,2, check 1, 2" for a solid HOUR at a Testament show back in 99/00 or so. It was the worst.

Then when they came out we still couldn't hear the vocals for the first half of the set. :lol:

Never realized he actually had picks, that's hilarious.

Chuck is approaching Gene Simmons levels of commercial ridiculousness.

He's been selling:

guitar picks
weed paraphernalia
royalty rights to Testament's new songs (?)
bitcoin (!)
bootleg DVDs of old shows

Yeah. I don't get that Bitcoin stuff.. They'll probably make a lousy 200 bucks out of that .
