Top 10 Musicians that Aren't as Talented as Some People SayGrunger92

NO, Freddie shouldn't be on this list. To all Freddie haters - face it: Freddie is the best and most talented rock singer. Pavarotti voice is more powerful but Freddie range is much bigger, so I would tie them. Pavarotti range is only 2 octaves, 2-1/2 notes, Freddie - 4 octaves!
However, comparing rock singers with opera singers is "apples to oranges" - Freddie haters just try too hard to convince us (rather themselves) that Freddie isn't talented. Not that they are convincing. - Metal_Treasure
Don't know why everyone says he is so great. To be honest, he is nowhere near as good as almost any classical singer, including Caruso, Bjorling, Pavarotti, Bocelli, or even Lanza.
I know why he's here.
Anyway, I admit he is one of the greatest vocalists, objectively best. But some people like him to be cool. I once argued with a person (IRL). He said "Freddie Mercury has the biggest vocal range. Even bigger than Mike Patton". And I am sure if I ask some people why do you think Freddie Mercury is the best singer, they won't have anything else other than changing the topic.
(Remember I didn't meant it for actual Freddie's fans. I meant for some people who like him to claim how much good taste they have). - zxm
Dylan's voice is an acquired taste. It fits and works for him. Interestingly, he's been copied often by Tom Petty, and Springsteen has been incorporating his vocal and instrumental phrasing for decades, and no one seems to mind.
I kinda disagree here. Cause no one likes his voice. Its his song-writing skills that everybody likes. And he is recognized for it. I also don't like his voice. Sometimes I just listen to his tributes. - zxm
Singing: 2/10 at the best... - somekindofaguy
I truly think Bobby is one of the most talented musicians out there.. like, his voice suits his songs, I can't imagine him having a voice of Mercury and singing his songs. Also, his songwriting is probably the best out there along with Roger Waters, just listen to Boots of Spanish Leather, All Along The Watchtower, Jokerman, Hurricane, Girl From the North Country, Positively 45th Street, Idiot Wind, Visions of Johanna. He definitely shouldn't be on this list.
Edit: And I don't even think many people say he is talented (other reasons than his songwriting, which he is as talented at as people say), another reason he shouldn't be on this list. - BrianScott01
Honestly their are far more talented rock musicians. - Grunger92
Yes she's decent at singing but dear lord people act like she's the most talented female singer alive, again she isn't, if anything Janis Jopelin is more talented in comparison. - Grunger92
Oh bug off with the Nickelback hate, he's more talented than a lot of bad musicians. - Grunger92
Pop Sellout Trash - VideoGamefan5
Pretty basic at most. - Grunger92
