Vocal Coach Reacts To Guns n’ Roses | Axl Rose | Sweet Child O’ Mine | Live | Ken Tamplin


Just kidding you’re actually at Ken
Tamplin Vocal Academy welcome where the proof is in the singing or screaming at
this point. I wanted to go and do a local coach reacts to Axl Rose of Guns
n’ Roses. I’ve done one before I’m actually but I wanted to go ahead and do “Sweet
Child Of Mine”. Now I did do a few different versions of Guns N’ Roses tunes.
I’ve done “November Rain”, I’ve done “Paradise City”, I’ve done “Welcome To The
Jungle” with my student Gabriela Guncikova. I did do a version of “Sweet Child
Of Mine” with my student Gaston Sanchez. So check those out I’ll put all those in
the description but we’ll go ahead and check this one out. This is live in Japan
and it’s “Sweet Child Of Mine” and let’s just dive right in, here we go. Ok that must of been the end of something and the
beginning of something. “Sweet Child Of Mine” You’re welcome. Look at that outfit. What happened to
those red pants he was running around in. Doesn’t he still wear those. The shorts. The Richard Simmons you know workout shorts, you guys know what I’m talking about right. Come on let’s get this song going here. Is he gonna sing an Irish jig with the skirt on. What’s going on here. Shmeh. It says “Sweet Child Of Mine” so I’m expecting this to kick in any second here. Is this where Mel Gibson in Brave Heart
makes a guest appearance. I should have fast forward to this and
looked to see when the song started sorry guys but it’s still kind of interesting it’s entertainment. Looks like he’s chewing it on something. Okay, okay, okay already. Ok I know there’s massive man love for Axl but this doesn’t do it for me but and there’s no real melody to what it is he’s doing. He’s got his his Axl
tone going on but I’m not really understanding what the thing is here. Here we go. Finally. I knew it was coming. I was…Here we go. Now come on everyone has wondered if that cigarette hanging out of his Slash’s mouth has ever burnt his hair. You guys
ever thought about that. I have. Here we go. Oh by the way I forgot to mention this too its 7:23 in
the morning over here and I don’t even I do no drugs, I don’t even drink anymore. I
quit drinking a while back and I just want to stay healthy but it’s 7:23 in the
morning and I couldn’t sleep last night so I thought what the heck let’s go react
to Guns n’ Roses why not. So this is like my third or fourth reaction this
morning I’ve done. Just kind of letting the tape roll and having a good time. I did
have some green tea and I don’t normally drink any caffeine either because I’m
already kind of a wiry kind of guy. So but anyway here we are 7:23 in the morning
in my new studio by the way here in Flagstaff Arizona and it’s a killer
place. It’s specifically designed for vocal production and I’m doing reactions from
here at 7:23 a.m. on what is this a Tuesday here we go. Long intro. I never did learn that dance man I gotta..and then that I gotta get that microphone thing down you know. Now if you notice after all the
screaming and stuff that he did, he’s almost got no voice, no actual tonal
quality. His voice is like pure dysphonia in his voice and (sings) I can’ even do that, I’d have to like
really work at it to do that especially not at 7:23 a.m. but anyway so I’d like
to hear more tone come out of his voice you know actual phonation but anyway so
it is Axl let’s continue. Got on on sky a little bit. You know when I see and I’m guilty of
this too. You see some guy running across the stage it’s like who’s he running
from or what’s he running to he gets over there is like wow there’s nothing
here I better go around that side of the stage oh yeah it’s nothing over here
either ah let’s go to the center. It’s just some stage humor there behind the
scenes stuff for you guys that have been on a lot of stages you know what I’m
talking about here we go. See he looks just he’s running into a camera. Check me out baby. It’s hard to sing alone with no background vocals like that. I gotta confess. He must give that spotlight camera guy
or a spotlight guy a run for his money because he’s all over the place. He’s got
to kind of always find where where’s Axl. There he is oh. Where’s he going now. Ah he’s going here he’s going back over here right. Ok wait. I just realized something. Okay you got all
the band members that have all their shirts open and Slash isn’t even wearing
one he’s got his open bass player over that so let’s just go ahead and okay now
I feel better let’s do this. You hear those buttons flying. Yeah I feel better more at home here. No I didn’t have any coffee. I told you I don’t even drink caffeine in the morning. A little green tea that was it. Again still no actual vocal tone, you
notice that. There’s no actual real phonation going on there. It’s kind of, kind of
weird, kinda interesting. It’ll come back though I mean you know his voice will rejuvenate and he’ll get it back. He must have just had a lot of shows or you know
kind of blew it out on this performance I don’t know what song this is in the
set maybe the last song I don’t know. Stop looking at me. Oh you’re looking at my scar. Is that what you’re looking at. Alright wait I’ll explain that okay hold on. See my scar. See that big belly scar. I have to deliberately pick it out like that. Alright you’re wondering what that is okay I’ll
explain it. So when I was 12 years old I was infatuated with like flying rockets
I kid you not and so I made this rocket. I don’t know if you guys ever seen what a co2 shell is. So it was an empty co2 shell and you could fill them with match
heads. Kids don’t try this at home or this will happen but anyway you fill them with
matches and they’d shoot across the sky you know like just a big huge kind of
and it would kind of get molten red and it would go (sounds) like crazy. So as a 12 year old
I wasn’t really thinking too much too clearly those days. I thought that if
you took an Allen wrench and you took match heads and match powder and you
pounded it in it would go farther and faster right so whatever that’s supposed
to mean. I didn’t realize I was making a pipe
bomb and so it blew up and the tip shot me in the stomach and they had to remove
my spleen and by the way I’m gonna say this for you singers out there. Is this
is why I say there’s no excuse about the abdominal support oh my stomach hurts I can’t do it or you know because I actually have some tears that happen in here and so
when they removed my spleen I caught something called staph infection and
peritonitis that set in and the doctors only gave me about 24 to 48
hours to live but I had a praying mom and she was super super awesome called a
lot of prayer chains across the country and prayed for me and I’m actually a
medical miracle. So in the doctor reports if you read it this guy named Dr.
Ampudia. Yes that was his real name Ampudia as in amputation but anyway Dr.
Ampudia says hey. He didn’t use the word hey he just says a young boy the age of 12
came in with severe abdominal wounds due to a explosion of metal into his stomach.
We give him about 24 hours to live then the next day comes by and he goes
he hasn’t died yet and the only explanation that we have right now is
that we put these saline solution… sponges in his stomach but that wouldn’t
actually make the peritonitis and staph infection disappear and go below the
blood count level that had already consumed my body. So in other words the
the the blood count level of the staph infection had taken over my body to the
point where there was a point of no return. I wasn’t supposed to return. So
the doctor report says mother attributes it to the prayers of her God and I
thought that was really cool. That’s probably why you guys are going Ken
you know you always talk about this spiritual stuff. I’m a Christian and I’m
proud to say it and I thank God every day for my life but getting back to the
the muscle structure here. So they, when they, way back when a lot like when
they did c-sections for women having babies, they would cut through the
muscles, the muscles are sinew and they come across the stomach this way and
they would cut clean through it. So it literally cuts open the entire muscle
structure when they removed my spleen and they removed part of my colon and
then they took out the shrapnel. Well they did that to women with c-sections.
Now they’re smarter and they pull the muscles apart and they cut the length of
the muscles so they can go and take the baby out. They didn’t have that
technology back then so so I had to rehabilitate my entire stomach and I
also have two very large hernias that run through here as a direct result of
this that I’ve overcome too over time and there is a way to do that. Guys I know
you with you hernias out there you can certainly send me messages and I’ll give
you some info on that that can help you but I wanted to explain that and no I’m
not trying to show off my awesome bod but I’m just being funny here with the video
for Guns’n’Roses. Alright let’s continue way too much information. Long solos. I don’t know. Where do we go. Go to that side of the stage. See I told you I wasn’t kidding. See he’s gonna run on that side of the stage, he just
doesn’t know where to go. Should I go stage left should I go stage right. I’m just saying right. Go over to that side of the stage. Ok I’d always wondered about that cause you know
you gotta count that out right you know how many times he says where did we go,
where do we go and I don’t even remember was that that eight bars, sixteen bars probably sixteen
bars right but at what point do you actually remember as you’re running around a stage
that oh yeah it’s bar bar fifteen on bar sixteen you know (sings) right. I guess you play
the song so many times it’s like in your sleep you don’t really think about it.
You ever wonder about stuff like that. I do. I stay awake oh there’s a funny joke
what does a dyslexic you guys know dyslexic is look it up if you don’t,
agnostic, don’t know what agnostic is look it up atheist do right. What is a dyslexic, agnostic, atheist do. He stays awake all night wondering if
there really is a dog. What did that have to do with this I don’t know it was gonna
lead to something but I forgot. Here we go. Ken you’re in raw form this morning. Yeah I
told you man it’s now 7:40. Oh yeah I know what it was. It was running back and forth on the stage trying to remember how many beats it was for a certain thing that happened. Didn’t really relate but it’s all good. Good performance you know I’ve made a lot of
fun of this. I know I made a lot of fun here going
through this but it actually rocks. Guys it’s Guns n’ Roses. It was a flawless
performance, the band kicked butt, no missed notes, a lot of great energy,
typical Guns n’ Roses fashion. They did an awesome job. Hey guys if you like what

  1. Good for you for putting yourself out there Ken, people need this, so many suffer silently. Prayers work very well, you don't have to be part of any religious group for that. Prayer is a form of hypnosis and also puts us in coherence with devine love so yeah, I have no doubt that your mom and all those people who prayed for you saved you! Great one, really! In this video….he had no voice, totally right! BTW, too funny about your fascination with rockets, you are truly Italian,lol!

  2. Seloko o Axl forçava demais a voz e olha que os shows dos Guns n Roses sempre foram grandes. Talvez eu possa tá falando besteira mas ele tem a voz bem grave e a técnica não o fazia tão mal assim mas que aparentemente ele forçava a voz é real.

  3. please react to arnel pineda singing dont stop believing with journey. search for "journey unleashes" on YouTube. regards

  4. Sail away sweet sister by queen and grand funk railroad bad time to be in love for the intro. The reaction may have been scarier than the performance😫😫😫

  5. I'm sure that cigarettes burned Slash's hair many times…but the way you motioned how it could happen and the sound effect, LMAO XD

  6. Holy crap, I had no idea about your accident and your spleen, Ken….wow….Well, we all thank your mother's prayers, otherwise you wouldn't be here today

  7. I heard that the "Where do we go?" part in the song actually comes from Axl having half finished the song when they started recording and he was literally asking, "Where do we go now?"

  8. excelent video Ken!! may i do a sugeretion? i like very much the performance and technic of Steve Lee from Gotthard band (RIP). Please, make a reaction video about him. I would greatly appreciate it…
    greetings from Argentina!

  9. Ohh Boy! Axl has gone from Richard Simmons' little red shorts to what looks like he just climbed out of bed and is wandering around in search of morning coffee. Not sure I'm crazy about his disregard for wearing the Kilt in a proper and respectable way. Maybe it's just me, but these things say a lot about a person. It's a shame he's doing this to his voice. And yes I wonder if Slash even lights that cigarette LOL.. by the way, where's his top hat? I thought he "never" played without it? Hmm.. Gettin' sloppy there, guys!
    P.S. Ken… you're hilarious 🙂

  10. Do the jim gillette power metal scream.

    eeeeehhh ehhhh aaahhhh eeeeaaaarrrggghhhhhh

    or something like that.
    would be like a 10+ second video

  11. Ken Tamplin I was always wondering what happened to your stomach. What a story man… I'm so glad that your here today showing your incredible gift and sharing all your talent with us. Your an incredible soul man! Rock on!

  12. To me, the magic of performing live is that vocalists don't really need to be perfect on every note. Perfection is for records, gigs are all about being raw, somewhat experimental and singing with emotion. I'd prefer concert Axl to record Axt any day.

  13. 8:05 Green Tea kicks in 😉 Thanks Ken for another great video ! Axl does another song sounding like he's passing a watermelon 😝🍉

  14. En plena gira, sino me equivoco esta canción estaba al final del listado de canciones en vivo, correr y y tener aire para cantar así, Axl es un Genio!

  15. I don't know about lighting his hair on fire, but he does talk a lot about it falling out of his mouth and behind his guitar on occasion to burn his stomach, or on unlucky nights… down his pants and burning other things 0.o. Interesting about your stomach muscles. I imagine having a strong core helps with singing. Phil Anselmo had really serious spinal surgery in the early 2000s, and performed with Alice in Chains and Duff McKagan of GNR at a Heart tribute a few months later. He sounded great, despite wearing a brace beneath his shirt.

  16. Inspiring testimony! 🙏 And despite this not being his best performance, I think it was awesome, but I don't think he can sing today as good as he did before. In this video it doesn't seem like he took care of his voice that much.

  17. If you are interested in hearing why his voice was worn out and horse sounding in 1992, check out any clip from the Noblesville Indiana show in 1991. Axl blew his voice out early in the tour and it took a while to recover.

  18. Hey Ken, huge gnr fan and was honestly kinda pained to watch the reaction to this particular performance. Axl's voice in this was super messed up from abusing his vocal chords throughout constant live shows and drugs and alchohal. If you were to see their performance of their first written song ever, dont cry, in 1985, you would see the absolute class of axl's voice in his prime. There is a little background talking in the video, but around 4:00 minutes, his voice is fucking stunning. I think it would make a great reaction for this channel as it shows axl in his prime before he lost his voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq-J7aAF0Q0

  19. Honestly this Tokyo gig is highly overrated and Axls voice was off. The best live performance of sweet child o mine that was filmed is the Paris 1992 concert. Same with civil war at that show.

  20. okay, I was eating an apple while watching this one and when you asked if this was the time when Mel Gibson from Braveheart came on stage I starting a laughing fit that made me choke on a bite of apple I had in my mouth (couldn't get the image of Mel running around the stage with Axl).

  21. Hey Ken do you ever come down to Phoenix?? I bought the online course but man! I'd pay anything to be able to work with you in person!

  22. Ken praying mom. Yes! BTW found out the hard way about the match heads too—except my injuries were minor to my hand and the Phillips screwdriver stuck in the floor joist instead—just missing my head. It wasn’t my time.

  23. Sir I just message to your Facebook account. Please do a reaction video to the link that I have just sent you. She's a extra ordinary and amazing singer from here Philippines. You will love her performance.

    Aries John Malana is the name of my Facebook account.

  24. One thing we should keep in mind that, Axl covers all the stage, not by walking.. But by RUNNING 🏃… what an energetic vocal he is. And it's a concert, it's LIVE dude 😎. Tired can change his vocal tone… Anyway… I love his singing style, the way he dance while singing…and his voice. He is LEGEND of all time. I wish if I could have a voice like him….

  25. Hey, do a reaction to Nirvana Kurt Cobain – Where did you sleep last night.
    Just want to say that you are an awesome person and singer. Much love

  26. Axl Rose has a distinct vocal style,abilty,he's just awesome, Entire band,pure talent. Oh and stop looking for a reason to open your shirt up:-) Can't say I'm hating it tho:-))

  27. Ken, love your stream of consciousness with this video. I have watched many of your videos and this one seems so much more ad libbed! Love it and it made my smile.

    It’s interesting that I’d heard a little of your testimonial about you almost dying when you were doing a chemistry experiment as a kid from an interview on “hot metal summer 2”, I think. Been following you and Shout on and off since and just now heard the rest of your testimonial since I first heard some back in 1990.

    Love your music, your videos and your vocal product, which has made me a much better singer!

    Praise God for his healing and for His saving grace!

  28. Yes I am a GNR fan always have been. (TBH I wasn't sure what they were when the video premier of Welcome to The Jungle came on MTV for the first time lol. I was thinkin WTF is this lol) Allllll these years later here I am and still in love with them. HOWEVER this is NOT anything I would ever pay to listen to that's fer sure. Quite disappointing most definitely. Love and enjoy your channel immensely. Rock on 🤘🎼🎶🎤🤘💕💕

  29. Holy Crap I am a nurse (Hospice) but I am listening to your story about peritonitis and staph infection. You are one truly blessed individual Mr. Tamplin. 🙏🙏🙏

  30. Praise God your life was spared in that ordeal Ken. Thank you for all ya do, and I do hope to get your course soon.

  31. Ugh he sounds horrible…I think he only sounded really decent in the "studio" with a lot of uh, tweaking AND when they first came out – and by that I mean when they were playing little clubs in Cali. But I do love some of their tunes

  32. Axl had started to do Grand Funk Railroads "Bad Time" intro in the late 80's. Then during the illusion tour, he did it every show. It was based on his feelings for Erin Everly. He did other intros to songs "Only women bleed" before " Knockin On Heaven's Door" Nothing new.

  33. Tbh, as a GN'R fan, I never liked 90s Axl's voice.
    Like you said, it didn't have any tone at all. I really prefer 80s or 2006s Axl.

  34. 2:25 everytime Axl sings like that… OUUUUU chillleeeee…. that does many things to meeeee! Axlllllllllll I fucking LOVE you! 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻😍😍😍😍😍😍😏😏😏😏😏

  35. Omg I can't stop laughing! Axel is like a bloody child running from his parents he's so off his face you can see it!

  36. Disappointing. I love this song. He opened beautifully then shredded out vocally👎👎👎

  37. My daughter LOVVVVVVVEEESSSS AXL ROSE she is obsessed with Guns N roses talks about the band allll the time Axl rose is her inspiration for her songs that she rights and he is the one who inspired her to want to be a rock star. Shes trying.🌹🔫🌹♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  38. Probably the worst vocalist of all time bar the Autotune brigade. He sounds like a cat with his willy in a rat trap! Sail Away Sweet Sister is a Queen track, from The Game LP. Hard to believe a guy actually gets paid to ‘sing’ like this. Slash is a joke too, thank god GNR are gone. At the Freddie Mercury tribute Axl sings We Will Rock You like this “Muddy yer a moy mick a big noz blaying inda streed gunna beea mig man zum day. Mud onya faaaaaze, big dizgraaaze, kiggging yo can olova da plaze”!!!! Total poop!

  39. Axl Rose may not have the same voice these days, but he has the same energy at nearly 60 years old! Still a fun show to go to!

  40. Great acoustic man.killer echo u not axe…still.no dis..axl is a pillar of rock along with plant and in my opinion Paul Rodgers
