    What is wrong with you people? How can you guys use the word "bad" and "Dexter" in the same sentence? Dexter's voice kicks ass, and he's one of my favorite, if not, my favorite singer of all time. He is very talented. He can sing, play guitar, fly jets, make hot sauce, write meaningful songs, surf, and doesn't conform. How many other rockstars can claim those achievements???

    Don't forget, he can balance complicated chemical equations in the blink of an eye.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    I saw this thread pop up and read when it was posted. I still have something to say about it. The people that say Dexter sucks at singing were probably only thinking about those times when he was either sick or fatigued from touring too much. He sings falsetto and at a very loud volume. It's extremely difficult to maintain those pitches at that volume for long stretches of time, and it's even harder to remain of key for any amount of time. The haters don't realize that and have obviously never tried it themselves. Dexter is a smoker and his voice hasn't suffered as much as other singers that smoke. So, he's doing something right.
    That NME idiot clearly hasn't heard the Offspring songs that haven't hit the radio. So much for an informed reporter or whatever he is. He should listen to "Fix You." Not one of my faves, but he'd have a new appreciation for Dexter's voice.

    Without any formal training it's a wonder he generally sounds live as decent as he does.

    Exactly! Same with Pat Stump of the former band Fall Out Boy. They both have great-sounding, strong voices.

    I agree. Dexter has a wonderful voice for rock music. Patrick Stump has a great voice too! When I first heard Patrick Stump sing I was like "who the hell is that?? He's awesome!"

    Dexter certainly has a good voice and he hits very high pitches and usually sounds great live. Is he one of the best? no but he is certainly good.
