Default 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.

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.

For their genre, Maynard and Zach de la Rocha are pretty good.

3. Phil Collins, you know you love him, ******s
4. Phil Anselmo

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 .

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.
