OT. Top 10 vocalists, male or female.
 
Since music seems to be a hot subject with bands and albums I thought it would be interesting to see who people think are the best singers.

Mine would be.

1-Otis Redding
2-Aretha Franklin
3-Ray Charles
4-Van Morrison
5-Sam Cooke
6-Robert Plant
7-John Lennon
8-Roy Orbison
9-James Brown
10-Patsy Cline

That was a hard list to make but I like it, it's a good list.

when i think of the best vocalists, i think of those singers who are instantly recognizable.
1 Steven Tyler
2 Elvis Presley
3 James Hetfield
4 Aretha Franklin
5 Janis Joplin
6 Bob Dylan
7 Chester Bennington(listen to this dude's voice. i know some people may b**** about him being mentioned, but this dude has a set of pipes on him)
8 Eddie Vedder
9 Bette Midler
10 Bon Scott

I agree with great vocalist being instantly recognizable. But I can recognize crappy vocalists instantly as well. I mean when I hear Brittany Spears I instantly say that is Brittany Spears, but she is a crappy singer.

It's all about the tone and voice control.

3. Phil Collins, you know you love him, ******s
4. Phil Anselmo
5. Chris Cornell
6. Howard Jones
7. Ozzy (Unique points out the balls and sounds great live)
8. Cristina Scabbia
9. David Draiman
10. Llayne Staley

Are we talking who we like based on liking their style or actual technical talent ?


Like i said in the Amy Winehouse thread
I think most people pick the singers they like based on liking the style not as much on if that person is technically sound/talented ...


Like my fav right now and it changes , Is Arron Lewis of Staind because i really like his style but i can name 10 easy more talented / technical singers.

Here is one I aint seen mentioned I don't think ... David Coverdale .

But as a singer I think this needs to be a 2 parter , Your Fav and who you think is the most talented .

Marvin Gaye, Ben E. King, Smoky Robinson, beautiful and powerful voices. Some of my favorites.

GoBroncos84 05-09-2009 05:40 PM

Voice, lyrics, and intangibles all factor into making a great lead singer. Some on this list don't have a "top ten voice" alone, but make up for it in the other areas.


1- Maynard James Keenan (best voice in rock, best lyrics in any genre. Best ever IMO)
2- Serj Tankian (Incredible range and very distinguishing voice with great content)
3- Brandon Boyd
4- Corey Taylor
5- Eddie Vedder
6- Chino Moreno (originality points and very artistic lyricist)
7- David Draiman (just love his voice, and his energy live is amazing)
8- Amy Lee (gorgeous, haunting voice)
9- Roger Waters
10- Chris Volz


I want to put Zack de la Rocha and Trent Reznor, but neither has a great signing voice. Great for their genre, and they have all of the intangibles and content. I just don't think what they do vocally is elite. The people listed above are hard to imitate, they have rare vocal talent.
