“They were really like a spider’s web, pulling equally in five different directions,” recalls long-time Faith No More producer Matt Wallace. “There was no de facto leader of the band. If any guy tried to be the leader, the other guys would just say: ‘F**k you’. They would laugh him out of there. They were the most democratic band I’ve ever worked with.: https://www.loudersound.com/features/faith-no-more-the-real-story

Turn to anyone with even a limited indie-rock background and say, "What about the voice of Geddy Lee? / How did it get so high / I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy." The immediate answer will be, "I know him. And he does." read this NPR "Songs We Love" essay about "Stereo": https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=124319843
