As in, I could have done a better job and I sing like a wounded animal, or virtually any pop star without the autotune. When I listened to their concert on SiriusXM from the Whiskey, he sounded even worse than in 2016. My thought is that his voice isn't strong enough to project in an arena no matter what they do at the soundboard. So while I said to my wife in 2016 that I was glad to have seen them "Right here in Bridgeport", we both decided that night that we weren't going to see them again. It was a fun show but at the same time we knew that it was just going to go downhill from there. Funny thing, I stood in line right next to Bubba/Bully Ray and Velvet Sky for a half hour until they opened the doors. He is a big dude in person, and a huge KISS fan. It was her first KISS show, and she seemed more excited for it than him.
Bully Ray is a legit dick at concerts.  I think I told this story before.  I was at a Black Label Society show in a fairly small venue at NYC.  Waiting for an hour or so before doors open.  Everyone rushes in and gets their spot.  I'm right near the front.  2 opening bands play so it's a long time before BLS come out.  30 seconds before they hit the stage, this asshole comes barreling through, living up to his Bully gimmick, tossing people aside to get to the front.  He's fucking huge and people went flying just by having him push by.  Everyone was super pissed and as you can imagine, a BLS show you have some gnarly looking biker dudes ready for a fight, but they took one look at him and decided to let it go.  So he pushes through 500 people and gets to the front as the first song is playing, and Zakk Wylde notices him and tells security to let him hop the rail. There's about 2 feet between the rail and the stage where the photographers and security stand, and he was allowed to stand there by himself for the whole show, occasionally giving fist bumps to the band and jumping up and down and making a spectacle of himself like he was 10 at his first concert.  The whole thing just rubbed me the wrong way.  Fuck that guy.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
