He's a flute player, not a singer.
(Ooh, and if you have a name with prefix, there's a number of spelling rules: it's Mr Van Leer, but Thijs van Leer. )

You don't have to pronounce actual words to be a singer....Thijs could hit some very high notes. Thijs Van Leer - Keyboards, flute and vocals in the group Focus. Is that clear enough? Or maybe Gary can't explain it for you in 27 paragraphs? :lol:

Add in Ronnie James Dio & this is it.

Also, maybe not the 'best' or most 'talented' but a very interesting one would be ol' Dave Mustaine.
