Seriously though, anyone know why he didn't go to jail for this scam? Seems like everyone just kind of forgot about it.
Rise Records paid back everyone that he defrauded in exchange for Jonny basically being their indentured servant for the rest of his career.

He's not on Rise anymore, though...

Then he must have finished paying them off, because that was the deal that they made with him. Rise talked about it on their facebook page.

Jonny Craig is a lot of things. An overrated vocalist is not one of them.

People act like because the dude overdoes it with the vibrato, he's fucking Pavarotti. It makes no sense to me. The dude is decently talented, but that's as high as I'll rate him.

Vibrato has nothing to do with why he's a talented vocalist. The guy has fantastic range, and absolutely immense power - most vocalists are lucky to own one of those skills, and he has both.

He's a mostly terrible songwriter, but as a vocalist? There really are very few better. If you only rate him as "decently talented," I can't imagine what singers you find better or worse.

Dallas Green
Nate Ruess
Brandon Boyd
Brandon Flowers
Tym
Greg Dunn
Aaron Marsh
Bruce Dickinson
Spencer Chamberlain
Rody Walker
Maynard James Keenan

The term "leaps and bounds" comes to mind.

Did you confuse the phrases "better vocalists" with "vocalists I personally enjoy more"?

That list would make sense then. Aaron Marsh and Spencer haha, fool you're trying way too hard.
Spencer is more of a personal choice than anything else; still a great vocalist IMO. Aaron Marsh, as well as everyone else on the list, is a better vocalist than Jonny Craig.
