I never had a problem with him joining bands like Iced Earth and Yngwie. Plenty of singers join bands who need a singer. The problem is he's never been in anything that's lasted, so it looks like he just hops around taking pay cheques.

But other things are different. Like joining a money-making tribute band on top of starting a covers band and playing several covers in solo shows.
