I have nothing against Jim but Axl definitely wins.
Axl Rose is the better singer, a whole another level of vocal skills. Axl sings more difficult songs.
Not really much of a showdown, Axl Rose is just a pale imitation of Jim Morrison.
Does this even require thought? Come on baby light my fire. - PetSounds
Who cares - both are dreadful singers (but good showmen).
Alice Cooper is the better showman though. And maybe the better singer.
Ozzy - bad throaty singing with very tight throat, usually contained within a single octave only. And yes, very nasal. His singing hurts my ears.
I told the truth.
Thumbing me down will not make them better singers. - Metal_Treasure
The greatest rock and roll singer of all time, VS the greatest opera singer of all time. Pavarotti had a chest like a bull elephant, and the truth is that his power would even overwhelm the King. The only other pop-rock-soul singers who could stand onstage with these two would be...
The only ones even in their universe would have been Levi Stubbs and James Brown
Al GREEN is STILL with us and his voice is INSTANTLY recognized.
I forgot to put this down. Both awesome. - IronSabbathPriest
Axl Rose is better. - Metal_Treasure
Layne Staley is a way better singer, meaning better vocals skill and technique. - Metal_Treasure
Kurt Cobain is likeable but Axl Rose is a vocal beast and wins easily. - Metal_Treasure
Bruce Dickinson's vocal technique is better and more polished, so he wins.
But I like Paul's voice, too. - Metal_Treasure
