Top 10 Best Singing Drummers
The Top Ten
Not sure, but somewhere I read he has four octaves vocal range. Freddie Mercury has also got 4 octaves. So, they both have similar range (close). He is definitely one of the greatest singing drummers.
Yes, he is the #1! He has so good voice like 4 octave range!? Amazing. His falsettos are so so amazing! And his raspy voice, so pretty!
He's the one responsible for a lot of the falsettos in Queen songs.
His voice really rocks.. he was too good, listen to 'I'm in love with my car'
I was around 10 when I started listening to Avenged Sevenfold. At first, I see M. Shadows and Gates and the rest you know. But then, there he was, The Rev. He stuck out, both physically and vocally tall.. What I mean is, yes he was quite tall, but his vocal range. Seriously, have you heard A Little Piece Of Heaven? He also just doesn't sound like any other vocalist, ever. He has his own sound, and he owns it.
The Rev at 12th place?! Come on he is the best singing drummer I have heard. Listen to A Piece Of Heaven and Critical Acclaim
Watch him live. He's precise while he's singing. All drumming does to his singing voice is lose a bit of the distortion. Does it just like the record. He wasn't just a performer, but an amazing writer. Some of Avenged's best songs are written by Jimmy.
He could sing clean while doubled up the rhythm of the drums, where he never missed any beat. Amazing vocal range and style! We love you, Rev!
As much as I adore Roger Taylor, Phil Collins has a much better voice.
The best... Now I mean the best singing drummer of all time!
I've always liked old Phil. Boy can that man drum! And he's a Londoner and that's always a bonus!
The man had a huge solo career as a singer.
Micky was an amazingly talented drummer with an almost equally talented voice and not many people could drum and sing at the same time with keeping the beat on the drums as Micky could no one can even come close to competing with him!
The man is a legend in the world of drumming. All of me and my buddies listened to this mans drumming style when we were growing up and he has been the biggest inspiration to me in my drumming career.
Micky is a widely talented drummer with an amazing vocal range his voice defines the word pop rock, and The Monkees had a unique sound because of his drumming.
Jen Ledger has a voice that's possibly even better than her brilliant drumming. Listen to her huge contributions on Skillet's 2013 album Rise: it's pretty much Jen's album.
She is blessed with many talents! Who learns to play drums in four years and gets to play for one of the world's hottest touring bands? Check her out in her debut concert tour, 'Comatose Comes Alive' at just 18 years old!
Jen ledger is by far the best drummer/singer. She's only in her early twenties besides the point. She has true talent and she shows it every time she sits down at that drum set
Enthusiasm and good performance in both. And she start in a high level at 18
Are you kidding one of the best lead singer, let alone being a drummer.
There is no singing drummer that is even close to Henley, also easily one of the greatest, and most poetic songwriters of any music genre...a true genius. Glen Frey said it best when he said "Don Henley can sing the phone book"
Awesome voice and still as strong as ever, amazing!
Best voice of any drummer!
Mickey Dolenz and Peter Criss ahead of Levon Helm, wow! Anybody ahead of Levon Helm wow!
Levon Helm hands down is the best!
How the hell would he not be in the top ten?!
Dave Grohl. Nirvana, Queen Of The Stone Age, and lastly...The Foo Fighters, which kinda doesn't count. Point is, multiple bands with success, his voice...Put it together and you'll see why he is one of the best.
One of the best singing drummers out there, but he's surprisingly underrated
A Diamond in the rough if there ever was one
Great drummer, never mind female drummer, but with the most beautiful singing voice of all time. Lovely lady too. I met her one day and she was kind, funny and beautiful all in one.
Karen Carpenter should be number 1. Listen to her original open drum beats while she sings. It's her voice and the simple drumming that made the Carpenters great.
She was not a rocker, but her singing voice was one of the greatest of all time, not just among drummers.
This really should not be a contest, nobody else is close.
This contest is not even close, KC by a landslide!
He made a solo album which was actually pretty good! Good singer, unbelievable drummer!
He replaced peter Criss. He should be in peter criss’s Place
Guys, one of the best singing drummers in the alternative and metalcore scene, everyone else on here are gods compared to Aaron but his singing in songs from Underoath with songs like "The Impact of Reason", "Writing on the Walls" and "You're Ever So Inviting." Or in The Almost with "Stop It! ", "Say This Sooner" and "Southern Weather". You gotta give him a chance and vote him up to the top 15 at least!
Brandon is amazong
What an amazing voice.
Amazing songwriter also
