How was foreigner's classic lead singer not even on this list? Lou had an amazing range and he has even been recovering from throat surgery at least put him in the top 40
Gramm should be in the top ten. Waiting for a girl like you was played at every high school dance during the 80's. His voice wasn't to deep or too high; it was perfect.
Great singer. Great friend. Great guitarist. Check out this brah.V2 Comments
He can sing any kind of songs very well since in his carrer he had a rock band and pop/opera solo work. He has a world record of singing more than 100 songs in one show due to his extremely powerful voice. He is just the best
He is definitely top 3 material... His voice is a collage of emotions and what a range whoa words don't do justice to this guy
Zander has been the lead singer for Cheap Trick for over 35 years and is often referred to as "the man with a thousand voices. " Listen to the first Cheap Trick album (Cheap Trick) from 1976 and realize that this man has been sorely under represented. And who the H is Jared Leto? I don't know who put this list together, but Jebus, it certainly does NOT represent an informed view of the greatest rock vocalists of all time. Who are #'s 4 & 5?
Mickey Thomas got his break with Elvin Bishop and then with Jefferson Starship sang lead on the classic songs after Grace Slick had destroyed her voice with drugs and alcohol. (Don't do drugs, kiddies - you'll end up like Grace Slick)
I would put Thomas up against any singer on this list. Listen to Jane by Jefferson Starship and name one other singer who could pull this off. The only one who might be able to do it is Steve Perry.
You clearly do not know much by Journey if think that Steve Perry might be able to sing Jane. Of course he can sing Jane.V1 Comment
The biggest under dog in rock music. Should be within the top 50 for sure. It's the Red Rocker! Awesome music from 1970's to current. How many people have that?
Still consistent after all these years. Go back and listen to him with Montrose and compare it to now. Still powerful.
Better than DLR when it comes to Van Halen, and his solo stuff is kick-ass too!
Jon Anderson is like the 4th or 5th best singer ever and should be there. Legendary!
Why is Jon Anderson not here! He is one of the greatest singers of all time!
Easily the top 5 best singers of all time.
Only the greatest singer in rock music this past decade. He's the man with the iron lung, he deserves to be in the top 5 of this list
He's low because radiohead isn't as popular or well-known
Thom Yorke on 123? Stop it, this is not funny anymore guys..
Why on earth isn't Maynard James Keenan in the top 10? He is easily one of the most gifted singers I've ever heard. The emotional range that he is able convey with is voice is jaw dropping. It's a darn shame that he's this low. :(
Lord Maynard belongs at the top
Not surprised... Just read these comments, Maynard is so amazing but oddly never atop any Best Singers list... It's non-stop Puscifer - Tool - APC for me!V1 Comment
The most emotion I have ever heard in a rock voice
One of the best voices in classic rock, the lead singer of Boston, and the "Nicest Guy in Rock and Roll. " When it comes to vocal quality and range, I would put him second only to Freddie Mercury. In the song "More than a Feeling", he demonstrates everything I've said. Surprised he isn't on here. People should look him up on Youtube.
How is he not on this lost yet I thought he'd be in the top 3 what the heck people do you have no taste in music his high notes are insane
In terms of clarity in the higher register there was none better. Steve Perry and Freddy Mercury of a very close second and third.V2 Comments
