81 Bruce Dickinson Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

Yes I'm the best metal vocalist ever!

Since when he became a guitarist? - zxm

82 Adrian Belew (King Crimson/Adrian Belew Power Trio/Crimson Projekct) Adrian Belew (King Crimson/Adrian Belew Power Trio/Crimson Projekct) Adrian Belew is an American musician, songwriter and record producer. A multi-instrumentalist primarily known as a guitarist and singer, Belew is noted for his unusual, impressionistic approach to guitar playing.

The list is about musicians who are singers and LEAD guitarists at the same time, so I don't get why James Hetfield is up there at No. 1! The guy's great, but he's not a lead guitarist.

Even more surprising is to see that Adrian Belew doesn't even appear on this list at all and 61 others appeared before I added him just now! Just listen to him sing while playing Frame by Frame or Three of a Perfect Pair, this guy is insane!

83 Jerry Cantrell Jerry Cantrell Jerry Fulton Cantrell Jr. is an American musician who is best known as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and main songwriter for the rock band Alice in Chains.

Massively underrated both as a singer and a guitarist!

He's already on the list. But I agree, he IS an amazing singer.

Amazing singer, decent guitarist, but no lead guitarist.

86 Chad Kroeger Chad Kroeger Chad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.
87 Bono (U2) Bono (U2) Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Awesome rock vocalist and yes he did play guitar on one song

88 Myles Goodwyn (April Wine)

If you ever see this man live you will understand. He has one of the best voices I've heard, he can pump out hits like nobody's business, and although he is no Hendrix or Clapton he has always held his own with his contemporaries on lead guitar too.

89 Tomi Koivusaari (Amorphis)

One of the best growls ever. Total insane. Why tomi is not here. A lot of Rolling Stones overrated artist on this list. Check put Karelian isthmus, thousand lakes and wipe Jimi Hendrix, Clapton, Jeff beck from this list. Doesn't anyone agree, Hendrix is the worst guitarist ever. Even a five year old with multidistortion boxes can play.

90 Robert Smith (The Cure) Robert Smith (The Cure) Robert James Smith is an English singer, songwriter and musician. He is the lead singer, guitarist, lyricist and principal songwriter of the rock band The Cure. He is the band's only constant member since its formation in 1976.

What? The godfather of the gothic rock genre, one of the best voices in rock in roll, and a extremely distinctive guitarist at that is not even on the list? CURE FANS UNITE GET ROBERT SMITH TO THE TOP 10!

91 Chester Bennington (Linkin Park)
92 Waylon Jennings
93 Zach 'Jackie' Slaughter (Skull Fist)
94 Dave Davies Dave Davies

Lead guitarist of Kinks. Also sang many great songs. I'd say his vocals is good as his brother's. - zxm

95 Sergio Pizzorno Sergio Pizzorno
96 B.B. King B.B. King Riley B. "B.B." King was an American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, and record producer.
