Adam Gontier Style of Singing

Hey there!

I've always been a fan of Adam Gontier's singing style from Three Days Grace; a good example being at 40 seconds in the below video, all you need is the first chorus.

Also :22 seconds - I could be fake I could be stupid, you know I could be just like you. You hear that he hops between distorted and clean vocals.

His distortion sounds very clean and sharp, and I'm wondering if Adam's distortion is different from ours, or is it simply a difference in the tone of Adam's voice innately? Also if his distortion is different, does he sing in a way that would be bad for someone who relies more on clean vocals, would it diminish a clean vocalist's voice? Any other things you could tell me about Adam's singing style would also be very appreciated.

Thank you very much!

    It sounds like he's overdoing it a bit. It's an impressive sound, very powerful, but if it costs him his voice, even if it takes years, I don't think it's worth it. It's a great sound, but too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Yield not unto temptation.
