No offense, but I think it's comments like this, that desperately try to ignore ANYTHING negative that is causing him to be confused by us showing negative reactions to aspects of it. There's no need to be mean, but there's no need to be dishonest. Unless you really thought he was great.

I didn't say he was great.  I just highlighted the aspects of his performance that I enjoyed and found merit in.  I figured enough people had given constructive criticism.  The bottom line is, I did watch each video all the way through.  I rarely do that with a cover song posted online.  Was his singing top notch?  No.  But there was something endearing about him that drew me in and made me watch.

Are you sure it wasn't the train-wreck effect that made you keep watching?

Seriously, not trying to be a jerk, but I had a hard time sitting through ONE video. The singing was pretty off and the "stage presence" was extremely laughable.

It wasn't a train wreck, and you ARE being a jerk.

Oh. OK.

Mods, just some friendly advice - this thread is about to get ugly. 
Now that Obama has closed Gitmo, when will he turn his attention to the abuses and torturing of the onions that are used to make the angry whopper?

I'm really worried that Nicky's vids are going to go viral. He may very well be on his way to becoming an internet sensation.

Hmm, yeah, that wouldn't be good. Totally of his own doing of course, but still.

Nah, he still has pitch issues on that one, they're just less audible because of the growling in the voice.

Well it's not perfect, but even during those few actual vocal moments "a roooooooooollll" and so forth, he seems decently on.

True. It's definitely the best of the ones I've heard.

Well, from what I could gather so far, we have a vastly different perception of his vocals. I actually find your encouragements somewhat misplaced, because I think they do more harm than good.

It's a good attempt but I think there is a lot of room for improvement. As I Am is a song that I actually love to sing the same with These Walls. I'm hoping I can join in the idea of cover vocals. I would love to do Wither, but I have a LOT of trouble with that song. I either hit it or I'm off, way off.

Also don't try to sound like someone. your voice is your unique signature. Use that signature to its potential and create music from that. I sing DT every now and then but use my own voice which in many ways sounds a bit like Bellamy.

Also, Tick that's some good stuff.

Could be the fact that he is yelling the chorus not singing it and is about a tone lower while doing it. His looks like is about to explode, I'm not saying this to rip him apart, it's true. I think he enjoys singing and should continue to learn and get better but as for this cover it was not good. Again I'm not saying it to tear him down, I'm just being realistic. I agree with Rumborak.

DID ANYONE NOTICE THIS on Nicky's site?
https://www.nickyspanjaards.comule.com/1_2_Biography.html


In the fall of 2009 Nicky was deadly ill after food poisoning. He had to throw up all the time. He ruptured his vocal chords and after that he couldn't even sing anymore. Nicky went to a doctor and the doctor said he should rest his voice for half a year. Nicky didn't, in fact he was in the middle in a record of his debut album with Century Crash. His voice was far from normal. He lost a part of his vocal range, the voice cracked most of the time, was weak and it was fast tired.

Actually, few people know that it was really Nicky on I&W and Awake. He ruptured his chords after that (not 2009 obviously) and they got James LaBrie to replace him. Since Jame's voice was so obviously poor compared to Nickys, they said James also had the chords rupturing incident. Portnoy recently left DT in attempts to form a new band with Nicky.

One of the cruelest things you can do to a person is fail to give them criticism when it's due. It may seem mean in the short term, but it's for their benefit.

This is the truest line of thinking that most people just don't understand. Whenever Simon used to rip people apart on American Idol the crowd would begin to boo at what he was saying 100% of the time and for the most part his criticism was dead on. Everyone seems too dead set on not hurting anyones feelings and assume that the effort of attempting something earns someone at the worst an "it was ok".

Not a bad singer to emulate but I don't hear it anywhere. Who ever his vocal coach is needs to be fired. There is potential there, but it needs to start back at the beginning, back to breath control. Something that Matt Bellamy for some reason was able to get around. There's a man with some vocal chops but the man cannot breath correctly and you get these gasps of air.

My theory on his vocal coach. He is either non existent , or a toothless crack addict in need of a daily fix.
Nicky needs to focus on actually learning how to sing, because at this point he can't. Also stop posing in his bedroom in an unbuttoned shirt. I'm sorry, but its just ridiculous.

In February 2010 he got a girlfriend. By all the support and love she gave him his voice is now how it is meant to be, full of power and with a big vocal range, so he says.

I think we successfully chased him away with due criticism.  He doesn't want to hear it, and needs to build himself up dilusionally rather than actual improvement.  Can we just let this thread die and leave him alone...no point in hounding him on his board and youtube.

As do I. I was willing to cut the kid some slack at first, but when he went and stole my post and used it at LaBrie's forums I realized something-- even though I wasn't  and still am not mad about the act itself. Saying what I realized seems a little bit harsh here, and not to mention overkill, so I'll just give it a rest.

Was this picture taken 10 minutes before that incident?
