121Richard ManuelRichard George Manuel was a Canadian composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the pianist, regular lead singer, and occasional drummer of The Band.

Way more people need to listen to The Band. Richard Manuel has the richest, most textured voice I have ever heard. It's so full of emotion and power. He's like a white Ray Charles. Listen to Tears of Rage or King Harvest (Will Surely Come) and you will know what I mean. -

Geoff Tate is by far the best! He deserves to be in the top ten for damn sure! He is unbelievably as insanely amazing!

The best vocalist rock has ever seen bar none. Nobody else can hit the notes Geoff Tate could hit at his peak.

He has one of the best rock voices I have ever heard, he can sing almost all types of music beautifully! He needs to at least be in the top ten! He is the singer of X Japan the most popular Asian band in the world! They won an award for best international artist in the world overall other foreign bands! And one more thing is that when he sings he has an amazing ability to have the person feel the emotion, the story and what its meaning is when he sings! You will truly be blown away by their music all of the band members are amazing musicians, beyond expert!

Can sing a ballad, Funk, rock and even punk! Smooth and polished classic voice.

133Noddy Holder

Nod the God, never needed a mic, such a powerful voice, saw them 13 times, Best was Monmore Green circa 1979. Kept shouting £Keep it Rollin" then took a step away from the mic, he was the back of the stage and you could still hear him. Powerful as hell.
