Oh look Ringo bringing up the rear as usual

Lou Gramm's amazing voice made Foreigner. Who else can sing those high notes on Jukebox Hero? He was able to scream, but have a consistant high note underneath that, providing that electrifying, powerful rock sound, but in an unmatched melodic way. That's why no one, including Foreigners's new singer, can sing his songs in the same key and octave, the man's range was simply too incredible. Easily right up there with Plant and Daltrey in my book.
#65 Really? This man has the finest voice in rock history, edging even Steve Perry. His range and voice is egual to Perry's with an added abrasive coating. He has more soul and feeling in his pipes. You feel that he is actually living the story of the pain/joy that he is singing about. Health has not been kind to his voice but when comparing his prime to anyone else, he wins hands down.
Pound for pound the most electric exciting voice I've heard. Incredible power, range, and emotion with a voice as clear as a bell and cuts like a sword. Absolutely thrilling. Lou and Steve Perry would be right there at the top!

Listen the Gazette song, and You will find the Death Voice of Ruki! - aguztine8chan
His voice is so perfect... I love The GazettE!V 1 Comment
Steve is at #26? Must be a lot of people out there who have not heard him. Search his name on youtube, also search 'small faces' and 'humble pie'.
Listen to enough songs, you will know Steve Marriot belongs in the top 5 all time. Popularity is what is topping most lists...
Steve Marriott definitely belongs in the top 5. In his day, there was not a singer in that era that was not influenced by him. Incredible range and tone, and clarity that was unsurpassed. Gone, but never forgotten by those of us who know what truly great talent is. RIP, Steve.
It is such a shame that Steve Marriott is so far down this list when he was the obvious inspiration for the likes of Robert Plant, Paul Stanley and Steve Perry. His voice was just so powerful, it hit you in the solar plexus, delivered with that amazing vibrato punch. And, he was such a cool little bastard! He was the complete deal and, sadly, almost completely forgotten and unrecognised. Listen to Tin Soldier, Talk to You, I Can't Make It, Get Yourself Together, You Need Lovin' (hello, is that you Mr Plant? ), Black Coffee... Greatest ever!
How is Steve at #104? He must not be known by today's listeners enough. He absolutely blows away Bon Jovi...ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Steve had one of the most beautiful and versatile voices in Rock History.
Pitch perfect with a huge range...listen to Small Faces and Humble Pie and you will see. Not to mention he was a consummate professional. I could listen to Marriott sing the phone book.
Beautiful girl and your voice is amazing!
That it's sample that female a great rock voice, she's the best rock female I've never seen
Best female rock voice ever! Apart from Pat Benatar.
vince neil.. legendary lead singer of motley crue
Vince is the best all around singer...
You guys spelled it wrong, it is NEIL
Most original and rock n roll voice.
Voice matures every year, and sounds better n better
His voice is horrible. It always was and will be getting worse. His voice sounds like a little teen girl - Sabbath
Dave Mustaine deserves to be a lot higher on this list. He has a true metal voice.
This guy has a pretty great voice for metal and is the greatest.V 1 Comment
You guys are all idiots! Frankly, without meaning to be offensive, have you EVER heard his voice? The expressiveness? The friggin range? The sound? His waves? His passion? Amy Lee? Kurt Cobain? JOHN LENNON?!? Guys, do not confuse "songwriters" with "voices". Just listen to the friggin voice. NOW! - TheNextGreatestRockStar
Klaus meine influenced 80's heavy metal bands... even axl rose personally approached Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker during the Freddie mercury tribute concert in 1992 that Klaus and the Scorpions Music started him..
A lot of people haven't paid attention to the talent in this group. Even the Rock Hall of Fame ignores them. Klaus Meine & Steve Perry have more range, more emotion & clarity than anybody else in music period. And Klaus does it in multiple languages. He is a musical genius (and so are Schenker & Jabs)
Blown away... Should be top five easy... Still loving you... Wow just listen to the range and the clarity... Sends chills up my spine when I here the scorpions...V 5 Comments
His voice made songs memorable.
Sounds the same live as in the studio - twoo1659
How can Gilmour be above the original and better Pink Floyd singer?
David was a better singer, tops. I've gotta say, the wall is the best album, though!
You asked the most important question man!
