Top 10 Singers Who Would Sound Good in Other Bands

This list doesn't imply that these singers don't sound good in their current bands or that the original singers are not good enough and they need replacements (although these scenarios are possible).

Now share if you think two different singers have similar voices/singing styles. Or just unleash your imagination.
The Top Ten
1 Tobias Sammet - in Iron Maiden Tobias Sammet is a German metal musician, best known as the vocalist and primary songwriter of the power metal band Edguy, as well as the founder, main singer and bassist of the metal opera Avantasia.

Edguy - Nailed To The Wheel, Sacrifice, New Age Messiah, Out of control.

2 Mark Tornillo - in AC/DC

Almost every time I've played Accept around my friends, they always say "is that AC/DC" - ryanrimmel

I've heard some AC/DC fans are not happy with Axl Rose so give a listen to:
Accept - Pandemic, Teutonic Terror. - Metal_Treasure

3 Paul Di'Anno - in Megadeth 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.

Try this: Paul Di'Anno & Jeriko - Symphony Of Destruction (Tribute To Megadeth).

I would enjoy his vocals on all Megadeth songs.

4 Chris Cornell - in Pearl Jam Christopher John "Chris" Cornell was an American rock musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave. His vocal range was C2 to A5, while ...read more.
5 Marc Martel - in Queen

At first I though it was Freddie Mercury - zxm

He does sound like Freddie and also looks like him. Find this on YouTube and be convinced:
Queen Extravaganza on American Idol - Somebody to Love (HD)
*** Queen Extravaganza is the official Queen tribute band. It was an idea of Roger Taylor and Brian May (Queen members) and they personally selected the members of the tribute band. The auditions were originally submitted online and over 2 million were reviewed. - Metal_Treasure

6 Dave Mustaine - in Iron Maiden David Scott "Dave" Mustaine (born September 13, 1961) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, actor and author.

8 Ralf Scheepers - in Judas Priest Ralf Scheepers is the vocalist for German heavy metal band Primal Fear. He has a relatively high-pitched tenor-esque singing voice and sometimes uses a shriek reminiscent of Judas Priest's Rob Halford, although it is his baritone lows which give him a near four-octave range in the modal register.

Scheepers - Before The Dawn (Judas Priest cover, 2011)
Primal Fear - Metal Gods (Judas Priest cover). - Metal_Treasure

9 Hansi Kürsch - in Dio Hansi Kürsch, born Hans Jürgen Kürsch, is the lead singer, lyricist, co-composer and bassist for German power metal band Blind Guardian . Heavily influenced by Freddie Mercury, he creates a huge choir effect by overdubbing his own voice multiple times in complex, overlapping vocal harmonies. He records ...read more.

Try this and you'll be amazed: Blind Guardian - Don't Talk To Strangers (Dio cover).
Hansi's voice is the closest possible to Dio - they are both high baritones, have the same range and even their speaking voices sound similar. I put Hansi relatively low only because when Hansi sings his own material he doesn't remind of Dio very much. But when Hansi sings Dio songs, it's obvious. Hansi is able to sing all Dio songs and they will sound awesome.

10 Andrew Stockdale - in Led Zeppelin Andrew James Stockdale is an Australian rock musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist and only mainstay member of the rock band Wolfmother, which formed in 2000. In 2007, alongside his Wolfmother bandmates, he won 'Songwriter of the Year' at the APRA Awards.

He reminds me of Plant a lot.
