also, there is going to be some bias in most people's lists based on the music each individual listens to
I really think when it comes to all time greatest, going back to the birth of recorded music, Hetfield falls way short. You are right though for his band, heavy rock, his voice is perfect. All time voice though? I don't think so.

I was going to post a list and it would have included Teena Marie, I'm assuming it's the same one you are thinking of. I was going to include a lot that are on your lists. Great lists.

and i feel he is one of if not the best vocalist ever in Metal, which in my opinion puts him really high up on the list for all-around vocalists and worthy of a top 10 listing

Hopefully you are a woman. I can't imagine a dude already having his wedding song picked out before hand.

Are you kidding me? I didnt even look at the rest of the list.

I cant sing, and I am damn near as good as James Hetfield. William Hung thinks James Hetfield can't sing.

Dude, I am a huge Rush fan... HUGE... and I would never include Geddy Lee on a list of greatest singers. Take a cue from my book, and dont include the singer from your fav band just cuz he is the singer from your fav band. Its like including your buck tooth, cross eyed, downs syndrome girl friend on the list of 10 hottest chicks on the planet - just to make her happy. You know she aint on that list, I know she aint on that list, she knows she aint on that list, but it makes everyone happy.

Sorry, I aint usually this hard on folks on the mane... I have been sampling the Bushmills all night... but James Hetfield? Man, I gotta drink a bit more before I am with you.

Although, he is better than half the Idol winners, so I guess that makes him 'great.'
You may not think that Hetfield is a great singer, but he has a recognizable voice. A person could hear a Metallica song and instantly recognize it as a Metallica song. Geddy Lee is the same way. A person could easily tell a Rush song by the vocals.

IMHO, I'll take Bruce Dickinson over James Hetfield any day of the week and twice on Sundays. Bruce's range isn't quite what it was 20 years ago, but after seeing Iron Maiden live last summer, Bruce has definitely still got it.

Plus Bruce is a big-jet airline pilot when Maiden isn't actively working together: he flies 757s for a British airline. On the last tour, Bruce was the lead pilot for Ed Force One. How cool is that?

Waters was a brilliant lyric writer. His songwriting was ass. That's where Gilmour and Wright excelled.

Roger Waters is a douchebag.
