Heavy metal. The only way.

While metal is a form of rock, it's unclear whether we're including heavy metal singers.

If that's the case:
Rob Halford (Judas Priest) Dude still has it.
Dio (Rainbow/Black Sabbath/Dio)
Geoff Tate (but Queensryche is horrible these days)
Jon Oliva (Savatage)
Midnight (Crimson Glory)
Ray Adler (Fates Warning)
What the hell, throw Ozzy in there, too. Dude still can rock.

P.S. Never even heard of Lost Horizon.

Tate was ousted from QR and quite frankly, it's about time. He turned QR into a horrible alt-pop band.

New QR singer is from Crimson Glory, go figure. Called themselves Rising West till they announced giving asshole Tate the boot. They're going to record new material and go back to their metal roots.

Here's one of the best singers you've never heard of. The part after the solo is crazy.

Fast Forward to 5:40 or so on this one.....damn!

Yngiwe, I usually stay on top of the metal news but totally missed that Tate is out of Q-Ryche. Wow. Just read a few articles. We'll see how it goes. Something had to change. They have sucked for too long.

And, wow, that unknown dude definitely has some pipes!

bono - shit vocalist. u2- over-rated band with a guitarist who relies far to much on effects. The only positive i can say of them is they have a decent rhythm section.


shite vocalist???

Not a huge fan of Slipknot or Stone Sour, but Corey Taylor can fucking sing. Probably has one of the best voices in modern metal IMHO. Deep, decent range, can push his voice into and out of overdrive/screaming easily and fluidly.

Meatloaf is too Broadway for my taste. He sure can sing like a bat outta hell though.  I guess I like 2 out of 3 of his songs which ain't bad.

Lead singer of "The Baby's" and Christopher Cross.  Their voices sound like a combo of Jesus and Angels.

Steve Grimmett. Don't let the 80's mullet-extensions fool you. The man has an incredible set of pipes.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOn1O3nmSfg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOn1O3nmSfg</a>

Tony Martin. Most underrated vocalist around and one of my all-time favorites.

Bob Dylan

In no particular order.
Roll Eyes

Not sure if this is a joke, none of these are rock singers.

If that's the case:

Dio (Rainbow/Black Sabbath/Dio)
Geoff Tate (but Queensryche is horrible these days)
Jon Oliva (Savatage)
Midnight (Crimson Glory)
Ray Adler (Fates Warning)
What the hell, throw Ozzy in there, too. Dude still can rock.

P.S. Never even heard of Lost Horizon.

Lost horizon is the greatest thing ever, they make Hammerfall look and un-warriorlike! They used to be called Highlander and they're obsessed with immortality and battles and stuff, their lead singer (Ethereal Magnanimous?) was amazing before he quit.

If we're talking Greatest Rock Singer it has to be someone like Mercury, Plant, McCartney, someone big and iconic. For me I think of the old Wembley Stadium sold out, Freddie prancing around like a nutter kicking so much ass it's untrue and Brian May ripping it up like nobody's business. Steven Tyler and Axel Rose are also great and that Stadium-rock tradition.


If we're talking most galvanising battle-cries that the common man probably hasn't even heard of then these are two of my personal favourites.
