"I'm a cartoon nerd from way back"
Some of the most fun I've ever had, has been in the studio singing music for animation projects or voicing cartoon characters. Singing some fo the theme music for the video game Clash Royale, was a prime example. Back in 2016,, I was asked to record this hysterical re-;lyrics version of Queen's "Flash Gordon" for the video game Clash Royale, a new spin off of the hugely successful game "Clash of Clans". . I was given the instruction that I should be careful not to "sound too much like Freddy Mercury", for which I said, "no problem, on my best day, I couldn't imitate Freddy's one-of-a-kind-tenor.... not to worry!" So, I created the direction for myself of half crazed muppet who was also a heavy metal frontman. That was my character. When I was done everybody in the production said it was great and loved it. A week later we got a note from the legal department saying "it sounded too much like Freddy Mercury".
