So, for those of you who are Flogging Molly fans, Dave King is their lead singer. He was also the lead singer of Fastway back in the 80s. Anyway, I had never heard his Fastway stuff before yesterday and his singing voice is pretty different. It definitely does not have the Irish sound/accent that his Flogging Molly material has. So I'm wondering if he a) had the accent, then toned it down for Fastway, then went full out on it for Flogging Molly or b) never had a strong Irish accent in the first place and since he was doing Flogging Molly, decided to exaggerate or go all out with it. Any other artists that greatly exaggerate or play up their accents? I know Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day has been criticized for his fake British accent he employs, especially around this forum.
