Corey really is so good if you listen to all the stuff he has done. Serious talent. I do like Cornell a lot also. One could throw Ozzy into the ring here, lots of nice work going back to the killer early Sabbath stuff.

You should define the term 'greatest' and some of these singers people are posting are metal, not rock. If you want to get into the metal arena most power metal or classic metal singers can blow away virtually any rock singer with their technical abilities, but that's the nature of the music. I'm speaking in terms of technical ability.

Can't forget a young Halford, Dickinson, Tate etc etc...I could list a hundred great vocalists.

Man I could never just list one.

I love some of the singers with a higher voice like Plant or Dickerson{I saw Maiden tue night and fuck can Bruce still sing! Cool}

but I also love singers with grit in their voice like Greg Allman or Ronnie Van Zandt.


....and che is right,Elvis has a great voice.

Perry is that guy from Journey, right?  Was he that much better than those other stadium rock bands..?

It's personal preference but mine is Van Morrison followed by Phil Lynott.

Whether Journey (as a band) was a better band or not is highly debatable. Certainly, they had their time.

The fact that Perry, in his prime, was hands-down one of, if not the greatest, voice in rock is virtually undeniable. When you ask vocalists, those in the know often cite his voice then (certainly not now - his chops are gone) as being perfect. His pitch was amazing. The power of voice was strong. And his ability to move to different octaves without having to falsetto was amazing. So much range and depth.

My second choice was early Geoff Tate. Also a brilliant voice, though he liked to abuse falsetto. But his range and pitch were so precise.

Then, of course, Miljenko Matijevic, from Steelheart. He's my third choice.

And my crazy choice is Joe Cocker. I just love the guys voice, however unpopular.



Both Tenors. Cornell is a baritone that could go way lower and higher with far more power. from a techinical standpoint you really can't fuck with the guy.

Yes I know...what a fanboy.  I think the dude is badass

Whoever said Dylan needs to give their head a shake, the guy can certainly write a great song, but he can't sing for toffee.

Steve Perry and Freddie Mercury are probably the top two, but I can't believe no-one's mentioned David Coverdale yet?

 Huh

Dylan                        can't sing for toffee.

Saw him in concert and it was painful.  The couple with us stayed in the hallway...we all left early.  Horrible.

He's awesome. Though in terms of classical voice technique, Bruce Dickinson ranks even higher.

But rock singing has always been about more than technique. Projecting power and sex are at least as important. In that respect, Elvis is way, way up there. But I stand by Percy.

Cornell was the first one I thought of. He might not be the greatest of all time but he is definitely the greatest IMO from the 80s- present day

No doubt - Cornell is an amazing singer. His voice is amazing, and the fact that he hasn't blown it yet means he's a genetic freak (although I don't think he can sign Birth Ritual anymore, which is a freaskish vocal display - listen to it if you haven't. He's off the charts amazing on it). He's not in my top 5, but certainly top 10 for me.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rei5VFFtO8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rei5VFFtO8</a>

If you like Cornell, you might also like Ian Thornley, of Big Wreck. I love what he does on this song to close it out. Very Cornell-esque, but in his own way. Gritty and melodic in very masculine fashion.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HmW9rVAtVs" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HmW9rVAtVs</a>


cool song. dude can sing, I'm always up for shit i don't know

Yeah dude I heard "birth ritual" 20 years ago when  it came out...Killer song.  I got into Soundgarden when they released Louder than Love in 89.  Early Cornell was a bit screamy, all highs all the time, as impressive as it was, it was a bit much... but he was just a fucking kid...then he really started SINGING on Badmotorfinger. and to be honest, I think his best singing ever is with Temple of the Dog

EDIT :  That's why i posted the "hands all over" video.....I was pissed about it 20 years ago when pearl jam ripped them off....LOL

You can question whether he's rock or folk, but has no one yet mentioned Jeff Buckley?

Haunting, and quite amazing. This song is one of the most beautifully sung songs of all time.

His range and ability to hit 4 octaves is retarded. He was great. Shame he's gone.
