Cornell vs. Vedder...

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by zachoff, Sep 5, 2010.


  1. Isn't this the greatest in vocal 90's awesomeness? I'm a fan of Vedder... I'll come out and say it. This is my favorite from Vedder...



    I like Vedder's version more... Just do.

    Layne Staley > *All* other 90's singers.

    Eddie Vedder! A much better songwriter than cornell as well, IMO.

    Cornell...he has a good voice, but I can't think of a more boring singer.

    I never got the appeal of Veddar. I always thought he was incredibly pitchy and went out of key more than a professional singer should. Plus, his pretentious "I don't want to be a rockstar" stuff got old really quick.

    I also got sick of every 90s rock singer with a baritone getting compared to Veddar - or should I say, every 90s rock band with a baritone vocalist was automatically considered to be ripping off Pearl Jam. Creed and Stone Temple Pilots were not that musically close to Pearl Jam, yet for some reason, they were both Pearl Jam wannabes according to a lot of people. But that's the fault of whiney rock critics, not Veddar himself. ;)

    Let me fix that for you.....

  10. The Beatles version. period. But between these two? Vedder. Cornell definitely has more range, but Vedder puts the soul into it that Cornell can't seem to muster in his version.
    Staley definitely rocked, but he was nothing without Cantrell. And I love Weiland, but EVERYTHING he did came after Cornell, Vedder, Cantrell and Staley.
     
  11. I could never get into any of that yarling characteristic of underbite rock. It started out as a David Clayton-Thomas imitation and then morphed and multiplied into ubiquitous imitations of a David Clayton-Thomas imitation.
     
  12. Ed is the top of the Grunge genre in my opinion. Layne was a close second.

    Here is my favorite Vedder clip

    Agree.
     
  18. I find Cornell's voice to be a bit more even across the range, vedder's falsetto annoys me.
     
  19. Love them both, but the nod goes to Cornell.
     
  20. I really think they fall into two different categories: Cornell is probably one of the great rock and roll vocalists from about 1990 forward while Vedder is one of the great songwriters ... IMO.
