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

122 Rik Emmett

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 Roll

123 Richie Sambora Richie Sambora Richard Stephen "Richie" Sambora is an American rock guitarist, producer, singer and songwriter who was the lead guitarist of the rock band Bon Jovi for 30 years.

His bluesy voice will send shivers to your spine. Not only he is an outstanding guitar player, but he's also a very talented songwriter; any of his songs feels like a whole different story.

Love his voice, his amazing talent on guitar and how incredibly sexy he is.

Richie's solo album are both AMAZING, great singer with great voice and feelings in what he does, the one and only just as Jon Bon Jovi...

He is very underrated. He sings with a lot of emotion. He brings the music to life.

Dud had a good voice, he is so love on the list because no one heard it.

127 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. -

128 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.

He is so under known he should be number one

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

129 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.

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!

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

137 Noddy Holder

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.
