I’d rather sound like Lemmy :)

I’d rather be tone deaf!

My tummy hurts.

No wonder Michael Jackson is…oh never mind…

Eyup!

Yah, you’re all WIMPS :D

I reckon this sort of thing was still happening in the 70’s though.

Frankie Valli ?
Demis Roussos ?

They don’t say in the article one other interesting thing about this: in most cases the resluting voices were considered failures. Most of those thousands of boys who were mutilated did not end up having careers of the sort described in the article. It was no sure road to fame and fortune, but rather a very iffy one.

If you want to hear recordings by the last castrato, Alessandro Moreschi, the vatican recordings are available on an OPAL CD, I have it on LP, he is only in the choir in some of the cuts, but totally creepy in any case. Good for halloween. here are some excerpts:

I think that was really my point. No matter what you are willing to sacrifice, there is no sure way.
