Mike Patton

Alright, today I want to stray a bit from the classical style of music and shift to something a little more on the wild side. For those of you who don't know who Mike Patton is, you probably know him as the lead singer of "Faith no More". Which is the band he is most famous for. However, he is in my mind the Frank Zappa of his generation. He has been involved with groups such as: Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom, Dillinger Escape Plan, and he has also collaborated with Bjork.

Mike Patton is one of my personal heroes for many reasons, and I hope you will take some time to look at more of his work because I cannot explain his greatness myself you will just have to find out for yourself.

I will leave you all with one sample of Mike Patton.
