The Contenders: Page 7

121 Matthew Bellamy Matthew Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.

What the... Matt is amazing singer, keyboardist guitar player, Songwriter and showman. He could easily be in top 10

He is so under known he should be number one

I can't believe he is so low in this list...

122 Tom Petty Tom Petty Thomas Earl "Tom" Petty was an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist and record producer.
123 Richard Manuel Richard Manuel Richard George Manuel was a Canadian composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the pianist, regular lead singer, and occasional drummer of The Band.

Way more people need to listen to The Band. Richard Manuel has the richest, most textured voice I have ever heard. It's so full of emotion and power. He's like a white Ray Charles. Listen to Tears of Rage or King Harvest (Will Surely Come) and you will know what I mean. -

124 Geoff Tate Geoff Tate Geoff Tate is a German-born American singer and musician who rose to fame in the 1980s with the progressive metal band Queensrÿche.


Geoff Tate is by far the best! He deserves to be in the top ten for damn sure! He is unbelievably as insanely amazing!

The best vocalist rock has ever seen bar none. Nobody else can hit the notes Geoff Tate could hit at his peak.

Seriously? 116? Listen to the range of his voice on Take Hold of the Flame! He blows a lot of these guys away. Listen to Queensrych's early stuff. This guy is right up there with Axl Rose.

Nod the God, never needed a mic, such a powerful voice, saw them 13 times, Best was Monmore Green circa 1979. Kept shouting £Keep it Rollin" then took a step away from the mic, he was the back of the stage and you could still hear him. Powerful as hell.

By far the most powerful voice in rock,its not even a contest

129 Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis is an American musician, who is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind, with whom he has released seven studio albums.

130 Miyavi Miyavi
131 Toshimitsu Deyama

He has one of the best rock voices I have ever heard, he can sing almost all types of music beautifully! He needs to at least be in the top ten! He is the singer of X Japan the most popular Asian band in the world! They won an award for best international artist in the world overall other foreign bands! And one more thing is that when he sings he has an amazing ability to have the person feel the emotion, the story and what its meaning is when he sings! You will truly be blown away by their music all of the band members are amazing musicians, beyond expert!

Can sing a ballad, Funk, rock and even punk! Smooth and polished classic voice.

133 David Byron David Byron David Garrick, better known by his stage name David Byron, was a British singer and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist with the rock band Uriah Heep in the early 1970s.

David Byron (Uriah Heep) had more range, power and annunciation than the majority of these guys. He was a singer, not a screamer. RIP. And Axl Rose? Sounds like Ethel Merman.

Incredible singer with quasi-operatic vocals. Very underrated. He sang rock, art rock and metal.
Uriah Heep - Bird of Pray, July Morning, Look At Yourself. - Metal_Treasure
