    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
