I mean the dude can obviously sing, but I agree with him not being able to construct a hook. Honestly my favorite thing he's been in is Isles And Glaciers and who knows which one of them actually wrote those melodies.
Vic did.

Assuming he gets a lot of help writing, yea, this could actually be good.

Jonny's problem has always been lyrics and melodies. It's been obvious on everything after the first DBM. Don't get me wrong, I liked both emarosa records, but the hooks were definitely lacking. I didn't know Vic did the melodies for isles and glaciers, that makes a lot of sense. Pierce the veil are one of my guilty pleasures.

Anyway, this should be great. Jonny back in a rock band with someone helping him write is exactly where he needs to be.

Why are people afraid to admit Jonnys a good vocalist? He may have done fuck up things but if you honestly think that he isn't good youre being stupid.
Jacks right Jonny is a very talented vocalist.
He's unique, powerful, and has an amazing range.
There's a reason why theres not a single good solid cover of a Jonny Craig song on youtube, Its hard to match.
Everyone has an opinion and a preference on vocalist but when it comes to skill lets be real.

He's obviously a great vocalist. I don't know why that is up for discussion.

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.

Nate Ruess
Brandon Boyd
Brandon Flowers

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.
