Is even on the best authors list. That hardly says underrated to me. Of course, he was on a reality show, though...

Is he underrated,cause I don't see a reason man who is always on top 10 or 15 of lists of best rock singers is underrated - zxm

210 Ben Howard

The most complete musician in the modern era!

211 Dan Fogelberg

I think the definition of underrated is when somebody, in this case, was really good yet you know he's so under appreciated you'll have to add him on. I didn't expect to find Fogelberg on this list, and sure enough, I didn't. He made the song "Longer" in 1980 that has become a near classic wedding song (it was played at mine). It's from his album "Phoenix", which along with Heart Hotels are two of the most under appreciated albums of all time. It seems everything about Fogelberg screams "underrated". He's a better singer and songwriter than at least half the people on this list, yet never got the credit he deserved.

Fogelberg always was quite underrated. I am a recovering alcoholic, and his song "Along the Road" off Phoenix kind of gave me the words to use to help me sober up. Along the road your steps may stumble, your thoughts may start to stray; but through it all a heart held humble, levels and lights your way... All I can say is that it has now worked for 36 years. It's kind of tough to see Fogelberg rated behind people like Tommy Shaw and even Entwhistle who weren't even the lead singer or songwriter in the band that made them famous.

I like to keep my postings accurate, so one correction. Heart Hotels is actually a song off of "Phoenix". The other album I was referring to is called "The Innocent Age".

212 Raign
213 Danny Rexon

This guy is the lead singer for Crazy Lixx. Just listen to there song Hell Raising Women and you will see why he should be the number 1 underrated singer of all time

214 Amos Lee

Yes, I've mentioned him before. He writes really good songs like Arms of a Woman and Windows Are Rolled Down, has a really smooth jazz-blues voice. Good singer, good songwriter and unlike some of the people on this list not someone whose face you see everywhere. Plus he was never on a reality show.

He's written and performed with the best in the industry yet the common person has no idea who he is.

215 Jim Croce Jim Croce
216 Bobby Hatfield

Part of the Righteous Brothers, this man's vocal range and talent was amazing yet no one talks about him, look at his live rendition of Unchained Melody if you don't believe me. Gone too soon

217 Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.
218 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.
219 Sam Smith Sam Smith Samuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

I strongly agree.
