Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson said metal vocalists can learn quite a few things from babies about protecting their voice after extended periods of screaming, telling BBC:
“There’s a chapter [in my autobiography] about vocal technique and about how it all works, the voice works and things – just on a mechanical basis,.
“And I make the point that you can learn an awful lot from babies. I mean, the racquet that comes out of that tiny little thing. And it goes on forever – they don’t lose their voice, do they, ever?
“Babies have got no fear of just letting rip with all their diaphragm and everything. And they’ve got these tiny little lungs. My God, they make an amazing noise.
“So you think about that, and you think when people say, ‘Oh, I can’t sing.’ Oh, yes, you can — you’ve just forgotten how to do it.”
