7 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.

He dances better then he sings live now a days.

In the early days of the Stones he was at least singerly. He is definitely singing on "Ruby Tuesday" etc. But he became a barker. He barks more than sings. In fact, pot does that to the voice. He basically has pot-voice, like a lot of reggae vocalists.

He sings good. But I've never liked his voice. - zxm

The Newcomers

? Meat Loaf Meat Loaf Michael Lee Aday, better known by his stage name Meat Loaf, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. He is noted for his powerful, wide-ranging operatic voice and theatrical live shows.

Look up his performance at the 2011 AFL Grand Finals. His voice sounds shaky, and he hits absolutely none of the high notes. Even though they're playing a half step down, he still can't stay on key. This is why you don't oversing constantly while on tour. You lose your range and power. - Gg2000

I wouldn't say Bob (ha! Bob! ) lost his voice; this would imply that he had a voice to lose. Excellent songwriter, bad narrator. - Britgirl

17 Paul Di'Anno Paul Di'Anno Paul Andrews better known as Paul Di'Anno, is an English singer best known as the first vocalist to record with heavy metal band Iron Maiden, from 1978 to 1981.

He was terrific in his early Iron Maiden days. But it seems as though he can't really sing anymore. He just barks in the microphone and when he sings, he doesn't hit the right notes. Maybe if he drank more water and stopped smoking... He sure can yell, though.

Bruce aged much better. - Userguy44
