My friends and family call me buddy my real name is Charles, I can play the drums basic beats and some fills I'm still learning and getting better. I'm a self taught vocalist I believe I'm a baritone who can hit some tenor notes. I can low scream and fry scream and have pretty good control over rasp. I can sing in a wide range of styles but I share a very similar style to Billie Joe Armstrong but I can sing songs like man in the box, I prevail's cover of blank space, if I warm up for a good bit and it's the last song I can sing Kiss- I was made for loving you every note including Paul Stanley's insane highs, and I can sing Linkin Park's leave out all the rest, numb, and castle of glass etc..
