My point's true!!! watch the reunion tour, almost every classic is downtuned. And believe me, that isn't for "artistic purposes"... It's so Billy can attempt to croak away to his classics in a less embarrassing fashion. Ozzy Osbourne does the same thing.

Fuzzy I'm going to make this as easy for you to understand as I possibly can: I have made no threads on this board today or even any time recently. I had nothing to do with the title of your thread being changed. As far as I know your thread was not merged with another one. The title was simply changed. By someone who is either a moderator or an admin. Is this making any sense?

Did you not make a parody thread titled "FALCO & Corgan dropping down the tuning for most of the classics during the reunion"?


And then did the mods not merge my original thread with your new parody?

lol shit... Sorry man... For some reason when I entered this thread, I SWEAR it said "started by Tyler".

I assumed you were trying to make some point against my initial post by making a play on it.

My sincere apologies man.

Mods shouldn't be changing the titles of peoples threads. That's a form of gas-lighting and wizardry

it is true the fuzzster how been played, but even so, the fuzzster's recent accusations toward Tyler that this was HIS thread the whole time and actually acting/making further accusations on top of that is a new low even for the fuzzster

FUZZSTER PLEASE

I thought it was clearly a parody on my thread and I thought it said that Tyler started it.

I didn't expect that a mod would change my title for no reason...

You have to admit, that can be a confusing circumstance.

I do apologize to Ty though. That wasn't cool.

I did have a few beers in the sun earlier, so it may have made me more easily confused.

I dunno, I'm just really enamored with Falco right now. I thought someone was really trying to rationalize that he was on par with what Corgan has become.

Several guitar savvy folks in the thread admitted that I was right and that it was downtuned from the Siamese Dream version.

You guys should just let me back in the music forums, so I can discuss some good music and not be limited to discussing a stale, old grunge relic.

We're saying the same thing.

But, even so, if you're trying to compare his voice in those performances to the clip I posted, You're outta your mind.

Well, I'm not a nerd about Smashing Pumpkins bootlegs and that kind of thing.

Were all the Siamese Dream live renditions downtuned in 96 like they were for the Reunion? I honestly don't know.

I guess my original point was that he's using performance wizardry in order to try and sing the songs and he's still failing miserably.

At least when he did it in 96, it sounded energetic and impressive.

he always struggled with singing on key. but they were a great live band despite this, and sometimes it even added to it in some ways. but it was mostly about the reworking of material, the emotion, and some improvisational parts of their concerts.

sure he sucks now.

shut the fuck up then, the entire premise of this thread was to say he had to downtune NOW that he sucks

Answer my question, were all the songs that were downtuned during the reunion downtuned in 96? Or was Cherub Rock the outlier? I almost feel like the downtuning in 96 was to make the song sound more heavy and grungy. I know he downtuned a lot in 2000, but I always thought that was more of trying fit in with the Nu-metal vibe.

Whatever the case, it's just a bad performance look. He's playing the songs in a different tuning, and he can't even pull THAT off vocally. People wanna hear the songs as they appeared on the record so they can relieve that nostalgic vibe. They don't wanna hear a bastardized version.
