Funny thing is that Cronin was in the band early on, left then came back a few albums later. That's when they really started getting popular. One of the classic rock stations here occasionally plays the studio version of "Riding the Storm Out" with the original vocalist. It just doesn't sound quite right.

That's right! I nearly forgot that part.

Yeah, when you hear the other vocalist on "RTSO" it's a little disorienting.

You're a little confused. The three Deep Purple singers were Rod Evans, Ian Gillan, and David Coverdale.
Graham Bonnett and Joe Lynn Turner were two of the singers for Rainbow. The original singer for Rainbow was Dio.

I'm sure some will disagree but I really like the late 70's- early 80's Jefferson Starship with Micky Thomas. He could really belt it out on songs like "Jane" and "Find Your Way Back".

Do Deep Purple fans count Glenn Hughes as one of their front men? He kind of sidled in there at one point and was featured on a couple of DP releases. I think he's a badass singer (and a pretty good bass player too.)

I agree. I lot of people don't know that Mickey Thomas sang lead on this song.

Also, Deep Purple and AC/DC comes to mind.

Yep, I love that song. It always bugs me though when they play it on the radio because they leave out the second verse and shorten the guitar solo. Why? It's not a long song as it is.

Another vote for Nightwish, Iron Maiden and Killswitch Engage. Dragonforce have been a stand out to me now ZP has been replaced by Marc. Their latest album is a brilliant one all round.

To me, Brian Johnston's voice crapped out at Razor's Edge. Black Ice is pretty dry to me. This is one of those bands that makes you wonder where they'd be if Bon Scott hadn't died.

To me their best albums were between Dirty Deeds and Flick of the Switch, inclusively.
