Greatest Rock Voices
The Contenders: Page 4
Just listen to "Astral Weeks" and "Moondance" albums. Van the Man can sing in any genre. If you want one song that seals the deal, check out "Into the Mystic".
Ray is one of the best voices in Rock! It's a shame he left us so early... But his voice lives on even after 20 years!
Great range and soul, plus a good lyricist and front man. Check out his band "Badlands." You haven't heard of him cause he and his band wouldn't cowtow to Atlantic Records, not cause he wasn't amazing. (Same for Richie Kotzen, another musician's musican. )V 1 Comment
The Talented half of Simon and Garfunkel
Anyone who has seen him live knows why he should be first on this list.
Inredibly powerful voice. Ridiculous range and variation and is able to perfectly convey the emotions of the songs he sings. Deserves to be far higher on this list and would be if Shinedown were better recognised.V 2 Comments
I Can Not Belive That The Legendary Motorhead Singer IS Not In This List, He Doubles Axl Rose And Triples Steve Perry. Most Unique Rock Voice Ever.
Definitely deserves to be higher rock god and lived the rock and roll lifestyle All the way and created my favourite ever song ace of spades
The god of rock and roll
he is great with his flexibility and his screaming voice he knows how to put on a show and through the mist of it all he sounds just like he wold in a studio
Roth has an awesome voice and screams throughout many of his songs. -
Most versatile vocalist on this list. He can do anything with his voice
Is there anyone more intricate, interesting, beautiful and cool vocal than Patton? Is already a legend. Just ask Axl Rose..
7 octaves of awesomeness.
Easily the best vocalist on this list, hands downV 1 Comment
The first great rock and roll frontman with a distinctive and versatile voice, legend! - ConaghJMurphy
His voice was sex power. Really made the Rolling stones who they are. -
From a technical point of view...not the best or highest trained...what he lacks in technical perfection is more than make up for in raw emotion. listen to him in his prime. songs like off of my cloud, satisfaction, tumbling dice and wild horses
I don't understand why my beloved Adam Gontier is at 74. He has such a dynamic, amazing voice, and if you listen to any of his songs, you'll agree that an artist like himself should be ranked higher.
He must be ranked higher. Yes, I know his live performace is not so great, but dude just listen to his songs, he's amazing. - CraymV 2 Comments
A powerfully dynamic voice who has the range, pitch, and octaves to mix it with anyone! Just listen to vvi "that time of year" simply amazing true rock voice or slaughter "loaded gun" "hard times" or "breakdown and cry" the guy gives me goose bumps and deserves to be right at the front of any vocal list. Can sing anything better than most!
best known as lead singer of Slaughter & Vinnie Vincent Invasion... best voice in all of rock n roll! - JONBONPIGO
Best voice ever! - Clear highs to growling lows with great timing and excellent taste.
Powerful voice from steel heart
Highest clear highs, amazing screams.
One of the best vocal ranges ever. He put pantera on the map. Listen to "hollow". You will not be disappointed.
Come on. Cemetery Gates, Walk, Cowboys from Hell, Shattered. Just listen.
Harmony expert, high voice, unique voice who is always accurate.V 1 Comment
Truly a great voice. His voice seems far better suited to pop than to rock, though.
64th oh yep this list was definitely edited by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Rush being the greatest band of all time, Geddy lee having the wailing ability of stephen tyler, amazing bass and keyboard solos, he really should be a top ten placeman. LONG LIVE THE HOLY TRINITY!
Geddy Lee:Number one! Best singer and best bassist of all time.
Geddy lee should be 1V 2 Comments
Has everything required of a rock superstar, great tone throughout a huge registrar. Words along cannot describe his gift, you have to hear it to believe it, number one rock singer in the world and a great modern day showman. Pure class
Should be placed in the top 5, currently the lead for slipknot and stone sour. Amazing singer!
His voice is amazing I think he should atleas be somewhere around the top 20 because like he has a pretty good range for a guy, and he has so many different kinds of voices he can do. SLIPKNOT FOR LIFE!
He should be in the Top 5! If you have any doubt about it listen you never heared those songs : "through the Glas" or "tired" (both with stone sour), "snuff, "before I forget" or "Dead memories" (slipknot)!V 1 Comment
Hear the voice, the range, the quality, and the scream... He should be up there.. Stryper was and is one of the best bands out there...
Those who actually know anything about singing would agree that he belongs.
Michael Sweet sounds just as good live as he does on record. That says a lot. I think he is the BEST vocalist for rock music.V 1 Comment
David Gilmour's voice (and his guitar, obviously) and Pink Floyd's music just caress my soul. When I listen to him sing, (and play his guitar) I feel like all my troubles have vanished. Go Floyd!
David's voice is unique he doesn't go high but his tone is great
Pink Floyd - an awesome band with a great, great singer -David Gilmour.
Should be top 10 Such a Talent and Such a MusicianV 3 Comments
The voice behind Cheap Trick is also the "Man of a 1000 Voices." Do yourself a favor and listen to him sing. You won't be disappointed.
If I was starting a band this would be my singer. He can sing rock, he can sing pop, and he can sing a ballad like no one else.
Top of the list, please. I love Steve Perry and mean no disrespect, but Robin is still touring and still singing!
Man of 1000 voices, enuff saidV 4 Comments
