Top 10 bands I cursed by becoming a fan:

 

1. CrashDiet -- became a huge fan after Rest In Sleaze is released. The singer than commits suicide.

2. Gotthard -- I was late to get into this and but they became my favorite band. Singer killed in motorcycle accident.

3. Harem Scarem -- Another band I like early on but kinda lost interest in. Got back into them and then they announce a few years later they are splitting up.

4. Star Rats -- A band that came out of nowhere and blew me away with "Rebelution". The following year, the singer departs and their next disc with new singer blows.

5. Jet -- one of my favorite '70's inspired bands who released 2 great discs and 1 subpar one. Then they disband.

6. Dokken -- The legends. Was a Dokken-aholic from 1984-1988. Listened to them non-stop. Then they break-up in 1988 after releasing their best studio disc "Back For The Attack".

7. L.A. Guns -- Another band I loved. And then after the awesome "Vicious Circle", bye-bye to them and hello revolving door at vocalist.

8. Dream Evil -- one of those bands that hit me hard and loved 'em. After 3 excellent releases, the great Gus G. and snowy Shaw both leave. Band hasn't quite been the same since.

9. Ratt -- Another band I totally loved. And then they disintegrated from within. I'm glad they are back.

10. Lillian Axe -- A band that is in my Top 5 all-time favorites. After Psychoschizophrenia, they split for awhile but returned in 2002. Shortly afterword, the great Ron Taylor leaves the band and they've been slow and dreary ever since. The last disc was a vast improvement with a 4th different singer since Ron's departure.

I think of him more as a metal vocalist, because of the heaviness in his voice and the fact that Tytan were a Heavy Metal band. If he was in that list, he'd definitely be at number 1!

 

List of metal vocalists coming up...

Bruce Dickinson

Fish

Ronnie James Dio

Rob Halford (apart from the crap he did with Fight and Two)

Dani Filth

Floor Jansen

Bon Scott

Angela Gossow

David Lee Roth

I forgot Angela. Hmm...

 

There's a challenge in there. I reckon I could disprove your "never get tired of listening to" theory - I think everyone's King Diamond tolerance has a limit!

The biggest problem I have with King Diamond isn't his voice, it's the fact that some of his songs are a little too 'samey' ... I can listen to 'Melissa', 'Don't Break The Oath', 'Them' and 'Abigail' until the animals of your choice make their way to their domicile, but some of his latter-day solo stuff is a little interchangeable ... not that this is necessarily a bad thing, you understand - after all, a bad King Diamond song is still better than a lot of stuff out there - but it does mean that I sometimes end up with a sense of deja-vu ... ;)
