    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.
    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
