Fozzy and the miming argument.

Postby gregors666 » Fri Aug 17, 2018 6:35 am

At a couple of points early on in the set it looked to me that Chris Jericho was miming.
However,I noticed that for all intense purposes they actually have 3 singers. The other two being the bass player and the second guitarist. I noticed that the bass player actually sang most of the set, and where it appeared that Jericho had finished a note, the bass player had not and so gave the impression that Jericho was miming.
I also believe that his mic levels were too low, so we were actually hearing more of the other two than the main singer.
They put on a great show however way you want to see it and I for one won't be heaping any woe on the shoulders of Jericho.

Tbh, I thought they were using a backing track in addition to the three live vocalists. Not my preferred method, but they sounded great either way. You can tell Jericho was singing with how the notes were coming out too.

His mic was definitely quieter than the others - maybe the sound was messed up, rather than him mimimg ? (Unless he's known for that ?) Just thinking of some of the other bands, where the sound was basically DRUMS everything else.

Either way, he put in a lot of effort working the crowd - more than anyone else I saw on the mainstage; Alestorm didn't work that hard because there was already a party. Chris Jericho really, really worked for it.

There is zero doubt. He was miming. Or at least singing (and at times not singing) along to a backing track.

There's a huge difference between the two.

He was absolutely miming. As was the stage left guitarist (at one point, he ran with the guitar around his back, then realised he forgot he was supposed to be playing, no notes dropped).

If Jericho wasn't miming, he was singing along to a backing track which was doing the vast majority of the work. Backing tracks are something which I have no issue with under the right circumstances, I get why a band might not have an orchestra with them on stage, or the odd bit of keyboard. But when its lead vocals and guitars...

Ultimately, I treat it like one of his wrestling matches. Enjoyable, entertaining, fun, but fake.

Must have been a backing track as it sounded like M Shadows was on stage for that song he does with them.

That bad AND miming?

Caught a bit whilst walking from one stage to the other. What a waste of a decent slot.
