    Re: your top 10 rock singers of all time

    No particular order..and some whose bands i'm not keen on but acknowledge they are great singers

    Bon Scott (AC/DC died with him IMHO, can't stand Brian Johnson's screeching. Yes, he was a great frontman as PW said, but I do love his voice and his lyrics were fantastic too)
    Paul Rodgers
    Chris Cornell
    Jim Morrison
    Ronnie James Dio
    Ann Wilson
    Rod Stewart
    Steve Tyler
    Mike Patton
    Steve Perry

      Agreed and neither can I. The band have had bad press/news over the last year or so, perhaps it's time they called it a day ?

        In their primes;

        1 Ronnie James Dio
        2 Steve Perry
        3 Phil Mogg
        4 Bruce Dickinson (never great live, but excellent when controlled in the studio environment)
        5 Phil Lynott (opposite of Dickinson - you can't tell the difference between studio and live performances)
        6 Robin McCauley (Grand Prix, Micky Schenker, Far Corporation - probably my most obscure suggestion)
        7 Paul Stanley
        8 Geddy Lee
        9 Freddy Mercury
        10 Paul Rogers

        Honourable mention for Bono though it pains me to admit it because I loathe his band. On the first three or four albums, though, he was exceptional.

        Numbers 2-10 could probably appear in any order depending on my mood. Ronnie's always #1, though.
        There is no beauty here, just the stench of wine and beer.

            Got to add Suzi Quatro, Chrissie Hynde and Wanda Jackson to that list. There were some great women rock singers

              Hah someone else who's heard of Grand Prix. What an underrated band. Yet another band lost in 80's drivel.

              Micky Schenker ?! What ? He's better known as Michael Schenker.

              Phil Mogg was an odd choice. Sung off key and got away with it.

              Surprised no-one's mentioned :

              Jorn Lande
              Russell Allen
              Eric Martin
              Tony Martin

                Surprised David Draiman of Disturbed didn't get many mentions.
                His singing here is phenominal:

                  Freddie Mercury, of course.
                  Billy MacKenzie (the Associates) was really good.
                  Also, Agnetha Faltskog (Abba) has a pretty great voice.

                      Yes, she really was beautiful, & still is.
                      Her voice was amazing solo, but the harmonies produced together with Frida were heavenly.

                          Never thought Ozzy was a great singer .. great songwriter maybe ..

                          Bruce Dickinson - not for me
