Mike Patton is known for his intense vocal stylings and his versatility. He played with the alternative metal groups Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Tomahawk, the pop band Peeping Tom and did an EP with the mathcore band The Dillinger Escape Plan. He also did vocal percussion to Björk's Medúlla. Mike Patton has released a number of solo albums dedicated to many styles, including Italian pop music from the 60's.
Patton says that while he is not an avid gamer in his spare time, he does play, and particularly enjoyed Red Dead Redemption, which is "a game that's really a universe as opposed to a game." He also says he has a long history with video games, coming from "the era of cruising around arcades."
