103 Steve Marriott Steve Marriott Stephen Peter "Steve" Marriott was an English musician, songwriter and frontman of two notable rock and roll bands, spanning over two decades.

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.

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.

107 Klaus Meine Klaus Meine

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)

One word. Legend

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!
