Steven Marc Zeitels, an American doctor who has been treating voice pathologies for years, operated on Steven Tyler, Sam Smith, or Adele for the same condition, bleeding in the vocal cords, using a laser technique to eliminate the bleeding. These injuries are common among singing professionals, but in the case of Steven Tyler, the doctor decided to go further and take a real-time measurement of the singer’s body. Zeitels and his team place a camera on Tyler’s throat to analyze the functioning of his vocal cords during a concert; They estimated that it produced 780,000 vibrations and concluded that, in terms of vocal endurance, Steven Tyler is a super athlete.
