Great vocalist from steelheart, a very underrated band! He has a solid voice, and EXCELLENT high range! Should be at least top 15

He is THE BEST. I've never heard a vocalist with his range or amazing voice. Honestly if Steelheart were more famous, you would see him at the top. Mili is a singing god, please have a listen and you will understand what I mean

The greatest vocalist on the face of the earth

He is one of the most underrateded and unlucky rock vocalist of all time. He had a huge accident before he reached his prime and he was hitting super high notes in pure voice not using falsetto, screaming, singing songs hard as hell which were covered with notes over A5... highest note he reached was B5 I think. If he was borned earlier and had good songs he could have been one of the most famous heavy metal vocal in the world.

He is the father. All the vocals are getting taught by his influencing scream. A voice came from his soul. Pure and strong. He is the best.

The raspiness and the sound of his voice is just unique. The sound he makes is very powerful and theatrical.

Very underrated, should be much higher on list!

Amazing Voice, even at his ace, Ian Gillan, Coverdale, Paul Stanley and other crear singers hace lost part of their voice, but glenn hughes is amazing.

76 Sully Erna Sully Erna Salvatore Paul "Sully" Erna is the American vocalist and guitarist for the American hard rock band Godsmack.

How is he all the way down here? Just listen to the original godsmack album and you will fall in love, especially bad religion, you don't need to know music to tell he has an amazing voice...

He should be in top 20, his voice can make me orgasm!

77 James LaBrie James LaBrie Kevin James LaBrie is a Canadian vocalist and songwriter, who is best known as the lead singer of the American progressive metal band Dream Theater.

My goodness what can I say... James is still a vocal force that inspires. His vocal catalogue prides on Not being limited as a "One Trick Pony." He has endeavored to utilize the entire spectrum of his vocal ability which has proved to be a perfect compliment to a band that is progressive and timely successful.

Such an amazing tone to his voice. He used to have an incredible voice especially on "Images and Words" and "Awake". He still has a great voice though.

One of the best vocalists ever.. I think he was great before the injuring and after injuring. He was allways a great singer, and it's so good to see that he is still fighting to this injuring. He may not take of hiss shirt and be handsome, or punch the cameraman. But he has one of the best voices ever. He should be in top 10.

Labrie is at #83? Avenged Sevenfold is top 10?
