Greatest Rock Voices

Oh look Ringo bringing up the rear as usual
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.
Beautiful girl and your voice is amazing!
That it's sample that female a great rock voice, she's the best rock female I've never seen
Best female rock voice ever! Apart from Pat Benatar.
vince neil.. legendary lead singer of motley crue
Vince is the best all around singer...
How is he not on here
Great frontman for the most dangerous band in rockV 1 Comment
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)
The best voice ever!V 6 Comments
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.
77? Seriously? Come on guys...
Sounds the same live as in the studio - twoo1659
His voice made songs memorable.
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!
You asked the most important question man!
I really really love his voice, it matches every song, its really touching how it sounds in dear god especially...V 1 Comment
Daron is insane, I love everything this guy does. Him and Serj to me, are the best rock singers of all time.
I love his voice, his songs sounds in my head over and over
better known as KYO vocalist of D'ERLANGER, DIE IN CRIES and BUG. have solo, created his name in japanese rock history as one of the rock voices who inspired visual kei bands and has a very unique, powerful voice. his voice now has more power, check it out - ronluna
the one with many singing voice styles as well as hyde, compare his voice from 1989 d'erlanger, 1995 die in cries, solo, and bug and he can change his voice similarly to 1989. his singing voice is very powerful. - ronluna
The voice of incubus is simply perfect.
his live performances are always outstanding. Hard or soft brandon can sing anything. really a kick ass singer
Simply perfect and live better... He is the perfect mix, look like a hot guy and sings like an angel.V 1 Comment
a great vocalist that deserves more credit
He's the best singer of the decade.
Best Female Voice EVER!
So much emotion, straight to the heart...
Quite great lyricist too.
Wonderful voice! Just heard him on Rock, Pop, & Doo Wop on PBS - at 72, he still has it! Wow! Great voice, great breath control, great falsetto!
Tenacious D, best band ever, Jbbles best singer ever, simple as that
While I agree with a lot on this "list". I don't agree that Rik Emmett should be 64 on this list. He has a lot more range and vocal quality than a lot on this list. His voice suits all styles of music (rock, metal, jazz, blues). Although older now, he can still wail. Plus he's a guitar god.
Not only an amazing vocalist, but also one of the most versatile guitarists on the planet. Give it up people, if you haven't heard triumph check them out! Best live performance I've ever heard.
Lead vocalist and guitarist in a power trio. What more needs to be said! Just watch some of the live clips from the 1983 US Festival and see a true master in action.
Great range, he can singing anything from, jazz, blues, melodic stuff as well as kick ass Rock and RollV 4 Comments
