Do rock stars really need to learn how to scream? It's doubtful Robert Plant needed coaching to shriek "baaaaay-beeeeey," or that Zack de la Rocha ever needed a lesson. But regardless of natural talent, Melissa Cross, the self-proclaimed "Queen of Scream," has developed a training program that teaches proper technique to a new breed of unrestrained rock singers.
Q: What about the classic rockers like Robert Plant?
A: Robert Plant. That's a little bit different because there was never fire in Led Zeppelin. It always had a note to it. He never screamed. With Robert Plant it was like, we still have to do music, we have to do notes. So, Robert Plant: Amazing vocalist, but he never did fire. He did heat and he did it really well. As well as Ozzy Osbourne and AC/DC and Bonn Scott. This kinda heat thing has gone on for 20, 30 years.
Yeap, Plant does have the HOT heat thing going on.
