Okay, we've done favourite guitarists before, but how about top vocalists. My top 10:
10. Kim Mitchell - the master of phrasing a lyric.



9. Steve Perry - the power falsetto



8. Chris Cornell - Grunge.



7. Klaus Meine - not bad for ESL, eh?



6. Ian Gillan - power!



5. Sarah McLachlan - vulnerability is hard to project



4. Geoff Tate - range, wow!



3. Melissa Etheridge - who puts more into her vocals than Etheridge?



2. Brad Delp - my favourite vocalist



1. Roger Daltry - the ultimate frontman.

I think you need tu sub Ronnie James Dio in there for Gillan. Tlk about power...

Also, Trent Reznor. The emotion he manages to convey contrasts perfectly with the machine like pefection of the music...

No Ian Gillan has to stay on the list. I recommend Jesus Christ Superstar (the studio album, not the movie soundtrack). Ian Gillan sings Jesus. Amazing stuff.

Off the top of my head, I'd go;

1. Paul McCartney
2. Robert Plant
3. Freddie Mercury
4. Eddie Vedder
5. Elvis
6. Bon Scott
7. Burton Cummings
8. Ian Gillan
9. Rob Halford
10. Ozzy

I'd put Sarah in a different category (jazz / folk) altogether.

Don't think you can go wrong with any of those lists. Maybe a substitution or two but it's still solid!

Well, if she were alive today, you know what she'd be dooing? That's right--scratching at the lid of her coffin. :lol:

Lemmy didn't say "alive", nor what genre.
So... I'll stick with Ella. :wink:

Good call! I didn't think Dream Theatre was well known enough for anyone to think of him.

Really? Ozzy? I really like Ozzy, but a great vocalist? That, just doesn't compute for me.

My top 10, in no particular order

James Labrie

Ronnie james Dio

Trent Reznor

Leonard Cohen

Tom Waits(I know...)

Phil Anselmo(how am I the first to say him?)

Mark Lanegan

Joan Jett

Johnny Cash, just like a few of my other choices, not flashy or technically strong, but capable of making the listener feel so much.

Young James Hetfield(Master of Puppets era.)

IMO I think Chris Cornell does not fit in the list at all, and James Hetfeild stays on top of my list in the rock genre.

I considered LaBrie but decided that Geoff Tate does that style better.

I've never heard any other vocalists that can go from a scream then pitch to normal in a fraction of a second without taking a breath.

He's some where in my top 10
