Top 10 Talk Box Songs
Trying to explain how the talk box works can be confusing as hell. "There's this tube, you see, and it's connected to this box, which is connected to the guitar, and then you sing into the mic ..." It's best just to say something like, "You know that thing that makes Peter Frampton sound like a robot? That's a talk box," and be done with it. It's way too technical for us to understand. All we know is that it looks like a beer bong, sounds cool and lots of artists have used it over the years, especially in the '70s (that's Aerosmith's Joe Perry with one in the above photo). Our list of the Top 10 Talk Box Songs includes everything from subtle solos to entire conversations delivered by our future robot overlords.
