Some will say he is overrated. But he isn't underrated - zxm
Oh, come on, he's not underrated. - Metal_Treasure
What about Bon Scott?
His voice is basically Thom Yorke on acid. What more could you ask for?
This man has one of the most incredible voices I've ever heard. The fact that he is still able to sing flawlessly nowadays after all he's been through is astonishing! Lou is one of the greatest!
Few on this list have the pure vocal versatility and talent to compete with Steve. Just go listen to some of his recordings and find me one other who can do what he did. You cannot. Not even close.
Simply the best rock vocalist ever. Range and emotion.
FREDDIE MERCURY is undeniably the GREATEST singer on Earth - EVER! Yet, somehow, he's not always number ONE, which is very disturbing! Sometimes others are voted higher, but those singers themselves would undoubtedly acknowledge Freddie as the very best of the best and readily admit that his was a genius untouchable by any human, including them! They could only wish to be mentioned in the same sentence with the great, the one and only, the BEST FREDDIE MERCURY!
Freddie Mercury is underrated because he should ALWAYS be #1. Anything else is blasphemy! No mere mortal comes close to Freddie's brilliance and genius. Nobody beats Freddie. NOBODY!
He's my favorite singer outside metal but I don't really believe he's underrated. - Metal_Treasure
He is noway underrated. not even close to it. Not even on top 1000 underrated singers. He gets his deserved attention - zxm
Underrrated for his vocal ability, overrated for his songwriting. - STLovesTrashV 1 Comment
He kills it in the new Alice in Chains.
Can sing in many styles and can sing continuously for awhile (vasoline live)
He was considered for Bruce Dickinson replacement in Iron Maiden but lost out to Blaze Bayley (maybe Iron Maiden made a mistake).
Doogie White - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden cover).
Rainbow - Silence (of Love), Cold hearted woman, Insatiable (Hunting Humans), Hall Of The Mountain King, Ariel.
Yngwie - Razor Eater. - Metal_Treasure
Just listen to "Astronomy" and you'll know what I mean, the guy doesn't get enough credit for anything.
Also a prototype of the low vocal tone he provided in such songs as "Transmaniacon MC" and "The Red and the Black" which had influenced James Hetfield from Metallica and so on.
