maybe this should be a poll...
singer and great example...
Paul Rogers, example..."gone,gone,gone"
A poll would help.
I nominate young Ian Anderson.
yep. pretty great. big Tull freak here.
not the lead, but the drummer
I want to hear her do a lead vocal
Paul McCartney. Extremely versatile vocalist. The man of many voices.
Paul Rogers is way up there on my list.
along side Roger Daltry, Paul McC, Lou Gramm, Ian Anderson, Ian Gillan
There's no best, but Steve Marriott should be mentioned.
Paul Stanley is up there for me. He's good in the studio and live, can cover many types of vocal and has a great rock scream.
In addition to some listed already.
Danny Hutton, Cory Wells, and Chuck Negron from the band Three Dog Night
Bob Mould for me, closely followed by Andy Cairns, but love the weird energy of John Lydon in his sex pistols days as well.
Huge Paul Rogers fan. He's my favorite.
Cliche' as it may be, you have to put Steve Perry on the list. Just start a Journey song in pretty much any bar in America and watch the place go nuts. I had the task of trying to sing a few Journey songs over the years. I pulled it off in adequate-but-not-incredible style. I got the job done and reverb was my friend.
Lots of greats to choose from
I nominate Ronnie James Dio
And Jeff Scott soto
Ever heard Burton Cummings?
David Lee Roth? Mick Jagger?
Yup guess who
I suspect anyone who thinks Chris Cornell is the "best rock singer" would really like Burton Cummings also. To my ear they sound similar both in terms of range and timbre.
tbh I think Cummings is the more skilled, refined singer, capable of more versatility, but I also recognize that someone attracted to Soundgarden might find Cummings' work with The Guess Who a bit dated, if not fey. But if you can get past the late 1960s hippie/flower-power vibe and just listen to his voice, I think you'll appreciate the similarities.
