Yeah, I wasn't criticizing the whole Painkiller track as a live version, just Rob's voice in it. But for a guy in his sixties, he makes a respectable effort to sing it like he did twenty years ago. Year idea of letting the guitars do the screaming is actually quite good.
Nupe & Metallian,actually the entire Painkiller track live these days is actually decent its just that we all love and crave that signature "scream" that Rob does which really makes the song and he seems to struggle with it live,I keep saying I think it would be better if he just let Glenn or K.K. do that scream on thier guitars,it would do Painkiller justice these days,that way the entire track live would be much more enjoyable,no?
Maybe it's meant to increase the sales of painkiller medication?
On a more serious note, I agree that Rob has never managed to do a proper job with Painkiller when it's performed live. He did an OK job in 1991 (Rock In Rio bootleg) but can't do it at all nowadays.
