            I thought the topic was rock singers. I jest, but I would not class the above as rock singers

            My list is based on these guys being at the top of their game, some are simply dreadful now

            Ian Gillan
            Ronnie Dio
            Rob Halford
            Paul Rodgers
            Alex Harvey
            Bernie Shaw
            Phil Mogg
            David Coverdale
            Roger Daltrey
            Maggie Bell

            Most overrated singers, Robert Plant and Ozzy

            Interestingly all of my favourites are from the UK, except Bernie who is Canadian

              Roger Chapman and Family not a rock singer and a rock band?.

              Not being rude, but have you ever listened to Roger or Family?.
              Family were most certainly a rock band (heavy rock/prog) and Chapman most certainly a rock vocalist, and a very unique one as well.

                I have heard some of Family not a great deal to be honest, I would class them very much a a prog band, however I did not rate him as a singer, although I do concede he has a unique voice. Jon Anderson is another who has a unique voice, but for me I simply do not like their style of singing

                I do like prog bands as a rule, Yes Gentle Giant, ELP King Crimson. these bands however are probably more focused on complex music and musicianship as oppsed to singing

                        Ok so that's 11 off the top of my head. No doubt I'll think of several more.

                        A lot of people have put Bon Scott. Brilliant singer but nowhere near the range of any of the above. He's more a front man than a singer. Haha that'll get everyone arguing !

                            Suzi Quatro every time for me. She even starred in Happy Days as a rocker who Joanie Cunningham wanted to go around with, inspired by cool dude Fonzie

                            I saw Suzi at Gloucester Leisure Centre in '78. I had to escape from the adolescent residential unit to see her as I was in pyjama's, my clothes being confiscated after running away a few days prior

                            Andy Cardinal (you know who you are lol) leant me his jeans & T-Shirt (valuable as it was a Van Halen T-shirt lol)
                            sigpic
                            Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
