My personal opinion Don should be behind Klaus Meine, and both should be in top ten this dude sang lead for the scorpions when Klaus'es voice was damaged. Dons voice can get to that higher vibrato range one of the best out of the 80s hair era by far.


Su has to be on this list if you don't believe me listen to Megitsune, Akatsuki, Ijime Dame Zettai, Headbanger, Catch Me If You Can or Akumu no Rondo. Her voice is soothing to the soul, also shes only 16 enough said.

133James Michael

I know he's worked with other bands, and did solo stuff, but I didn't know who he was until Sixx A.M. I've since listened to some of his other stuff, but none of it does justice to seeing him live. His range is amazing and he can hold a note longer than anyone I've seen in a long time, and I've seen a lot of shows. He definitely deserves a spot on this list.
