Vocal Coach Reaction To Styx – Blue Collar Man – Ken Tamplin

Leaving it all on the field.

Consummate musicians, Styx embraces this philosophy with every single song. Every. Single. Song. In this performance the band takes no prisoners in an all-out, John Rambo-esque, assault of blistering musicianship coupled with sublime vocals and unparalleled songwriting in a pure, balls to the wall, performance. Guys, this is “Rockstar Great”. This is perfectly executed professionalism; the type that I hope inspires each of us to “leave it all on the field” in every aspect of life.

Blue Collar Man (Long Nights) is the first single that Styx released from the Pieces of Eight album in 1978. Lore has it that the song was composed by Tommy Shaw after hearing the sound of his boat engine failing to start. He said it sounded like a good riff to a song. The song reached No. 21 in the United States.

Music is life.

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
