Best Male Singers

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Van Morrison Van Morrison

Van Morrison? Peter Gabriel? James Brown? Little Richard? Wow, there are singers who didn't make the top 100 that should be in the top 20!

Greatest singer who has ever drawn breath.

I don't think he should be #1, but he should be higher up the list than this.

I DO think he should be #1!

62 Michael Bolton Michael Bolton

How isn't Michael Bolton near the top of this list, his voice is amazing!

Michael Bolton was not very widely known, but if you truly listen to his voice it is a thing of beauty second only to Axl Rose. I look past genre to the actual talent. Bieber, Eminem etc. Don't even belonging on a list of SINGERS. Dancers, poets maybe.. Not singers though.

His voice is incredibly powerful, distinctive and soulful! He can reach points of 3 and a half octaves, and he is exactly the same live as he is in the recording studio. To put it simply, his voice is incredibly underrated.

He has a powerful voice! I believe He should be in top 10

64 Chris Martin Chris Martin

Chris Martin is honestly one of the best all time singers in the world, I can't believe he is not in the top 10 let alone the top 50 he's better than pretty much all the people in front of him so please people vote! Vote! Vote!

It's about time he and Coldplay got the respect they deserve.

Chris Martin has an amazing voice... A reason why Coldplay is such a great band.

Probably Chris wasn't on the top 10 because no one knowed that he's the lead singer of Coldplay, he's so humbled that he didn't let his name reach the sky just because he cares for his band. He's my idol and I don't think tbis list was fare.

65 Johnny Cash Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash (1932-2003) was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. He died of ...read more.

How can he be under Justin beiber? The man was a great, he sang spiritual songs, classic country ones and rock 'n' roll at one point! His greatest recordings were live, he didn't mime! He could perform flawlessly without any auto tuners and was a lovely guy!

Jonny Cash just has a voice that makes you want to listen to him. It's a deep bass that shows feeling when he sings. He played guitar well but without his voice he wouldn't be the legend he is.

He asked my Grandma out at one of his concerts.! She turned him down because he was with my Grandpa.! I would love to be related to Johnny Cash.!

Why is chris brown above johnny and some k pop bs, writes the most amazing music I won't call him best ever but come on adam lambert is ahead of a legend that makes me concerned

66 Roy Orbison Roy Orbison Roy Kelton Orbison, professionally known as Roy Orbison, nicknamed Big O, was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and musician, mostly known for his complex voice and for hits such as, "Oh, Pretty Woman".

I think it was In 1963 Orbison toured with The Beatles before they were well known. Orbison did fourteen encores before The Beatles played. He was better than The Beatles and they knew it. In a way, one could say he helped them to become great. Orbison was over the top to help express certain emotions that we all have, especially grief. "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep."

Roy Orbison was the most naturally gifted male vocalist ever. Maybe other singers have been or are more entertaining but none could produce such perfect notes with so little effort.

When I hear or play Orbison in my apt, I turn volume UP and let myself groove.. And let go. And once I'm in that Orbison mood I need more... Just hanging on til I had my fill.. Til I'm satiated. Its like chocolate or wine or sex. Then I resume my whatever. But don't get that serendipity chance to hear R.O. much any more.. sadly.

Clearly one of the best of all time, behind Sinatra maybe.

67 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.

He must be a really nice guy or something, because he is rated too high on just about every list I've seen. Sorry, but one good solo album does not put him ahead of Sam Cooke and Mick Jagger. Was he Steve Perry's role model for singing? No, Sam Cooke was. Has anyone written a song called, "Moves like Sambora"? No. I see him rated as a great songwriter, which he's not. Then I come here and see him hailed as a great singer. The only list Richie belongs on is best guitarists, and frankly somewhere in the middle of the pack..sorry, just being real...

the guitarist of bon jovi!

listen to his solo stuff and you will know that he's great - richie4life

Love Richie's voice. He has that deep voice that is amazing when he really lets it out. - teri1961

I never knew he sang - gemcloben

68 Mick Jagger Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

I just love Mick Jagger! He is still so hot! His voice is very sexy too! Mick has a unique quality in his performance and his voice. There is no one quite like him.

Yes, yes, yes, folks! Don't believe the reality show judges, being a great singer isn't all about staying on key. Being a great singer is about showing imagination, and moving a stranger's soul with the melody and words you've been given. That is why people like Mick Jagger, John Fogerty, and especially Don Henley need to be higher on this list!

Lead singer and founding member of the Rolling stones.
Extremely talented, has been knighted and has a song written about him and his 'mones'.

73? But of course Bruno mars is in the top 10

69 James Brown James Brown

James Brown, the godfarther of soul. It's pitiful to see him this low, particularly when comparing to those who have been placed above him on this list. He was truly great and a natural talent. His voice could command so much emotion and soul yet he was also such a cool guy and an amazing entertainer. Unbelievable 5 octave vocal range to add to that also. When watching this, one can't help but see the man who preceded and probably had some kind of influence on Michael jackson.

Simply the best

awesome

70 Rob Halford Rob Halford Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

Unfortunately the majority of individuals voting on this would have not understand who Rob Halford is! Popular Music has nothing on the God's of Rock such as Rob Halford, Don Dokken, Blackie Lawless and not to forget Ronnie James Dio. Having an appreciation and an understanding of all genres of music will only provide one with an insight into what real music is about!

Rob Halford BLOWS MY MIND! ! He pours every ounce of his energy into his music like nobody else. Check out his performance in Hear N Aid "We're Stars" (Google it) and you will get a taste of what he is made of. What a range! He gets me so pumped! I heard he has a back round in opera. No words can express how great a vocalist he is. Truly amazing seems to be an understatement. You HAVE to listen for yourself!

Wow?! Just because a man can dance around he deserves to be in the top 10? People today don't know what real vocals are. If you did Rob would certainly be higher. Greatest Metal singer and Greatest Singer of all time.

I think I was in a coma when this man's band came on the scene. I do not remember Steelheart, but when I tripped across the video for She's gone I went into a state of shock. This is the most amazing voice I have ever heard. The whole band is so talented. I'm a Grandmother but my husband caught me dancing my butt of listening to Mili. Thanks Milijenko my Police Officer husband thinks I've lost my mind.

seriously, listen to this guy. hes amazing -

Oh ya he's the BEST SINGER EVER! I'd say he's the top 1 best singer ever!

The best rock voice ever

My Perry Como! How could anyone not pick him at least in the top 100 he is the best. He lovely ballads and crooning voice.

74 Mike Shinoda Mike Shinoda Michael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

Not many know that he is the one giving the awesome rap in Linkin Park, but his contribution will soon be recognized

He is best rapper... I like all rap of him.. His personality and looks is also awesome.. I think he should be in first rank

Mike Shinoda should at least be in th top 100.

I reckon this man should be in the top 75 as he is one of the unknown contributions to Linkin Park's epicness

75 John Legend John Legend John Roger Stephens, better known by his stage name John Legend, is an American singer, songwriter, musician and actor.

Have you listened to "All of Me"? This man has a beautiful voice that is just pure magic to listen to.

John Legend should be in the top 20. This guy has amazing vocals.

76 Nick Drake Nick Drake Nicholas Rodney "Nick" Drake (19 June 1948 – 25 November 1974) was an English singer-songwriter and musician, known for his acoustic guitar-based songs. A singular talent who passed almost unnoticed during his brief lifetime, his work has posthumously achieved wider notice and recognition.

Or you could say he sounds like someone just woke him up from a nap.

THE most hauntingly exquisite male voice in music history!

Drake is a little know vocal gem.

Nick Drake's voice... A soft, silken, melancholic murmer that caresses the soul.

77 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

Most powerful singer that act lyrics in super high voice for 30 years
In metal, that's amazing! He is the best and his sound make me crazy and emotion! He deserve more and more than it!

He has metal magic in his voice he ing so good without any effects no body match him at least he not deserve here

James sings more than 30 years and he still sounds awesome!
His voice has changed over the years but I think that's good. I think it would be boring to hear always the same voice. He sounds much different on master of puppets than on death magnetic and that is one thing which makes Metallica the best band of all time for me!
I hope he will never stop singing 'cause his voice has something that makes me feeling good.
LONG LIVE JAMES HETFIELD!

James is the best, he should be at least in TOP 3...

78 Phil Collins Phil Collins Philip David Charles "Phil" Collins is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who has also worked as a record producer and actor.

Phil Collins at 62? Today's punks ahead of Collins, Lennon? I have lot of respect for MJ. but Phil excels vocally over him. And he can even drum and sing at the same time? In the air tonight can alone take him to top five. this shows the lameness of this list - Philfan

Phil collins has amazing songs like "she seems to have an invisible touch" and "tell everybody I'm on my way" he should be in the top 40 at least. He's pretty good.

Come on, Phil Collins keeps dropping lower and lower on this list! This is ridiculous. His voice and music are incredible, in both Genesis and as a solo artist. He's also a fantastic drummer. You can't go wrong with him, and not enough people know of his music!

79 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Absolutely agree. Technically he's terrible but other people sing his songs and it's always missing something. No less an authority than Graham Nash said Dylan was "absolutely my favorite songwriter and absolutely my favorite singer".

Seriously, nobody writes them like Bob, and nobody does Dylan like Dylan! Greatest songwriter of all time! Greatest singer of his all together incredible songs!

Bob dylan may not have the best sounding voice, but its very expressive. who else could have done the "how does it feel? " in like a rolling stone like bob did? - RecklessGreed

The fact that Bob Dylan is way behind Adam Lambert is BS. - HospitalBryant
