Rob: I've never sung in falsetto. Falsetto is a soft version of the high range. It's like faking a high and I've never done that. All of my highs are pure and intense in the octave that I am performing them in. When Phil Anselmo said to me, 'You never sang falsetto -others do but you don't, bro.' - that's a compliment.
