Who do you think is the best "Rock N' Roll" singer?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Matt Till, Aug 6, 2003.

  1. Gotta toss another vote out for Freddy Mercury; he's the standard by which I judge everyone else. Honorable mentions to Maynard James Keenan, and Chris Cornell and Robert Plant in their primes...

    Rock pipes?

    No "best", but a great one is Alex T. Ligertwood.

    12 albums with Santana and with Jeff Beck and Brian Auger's Oblivian Express before that.

    Alice Cooper - 70's stuff

    Bruce Dickinson - 80's stuff
  16. Ive gotta go with Burton Cummings and Chris Cornell (leaning more toward Cornell), but i also really dig Gavin Rossdale from Bush.

    I think Machaut, the hard grader, would give an
    A+ to

    Jerry La Croix

    frontman for Edgar Winter's White Trash.

    "I've Got News For You" is one of those songs that shows he's running a bored and stroked
    V8 under his hood.

    Freddie was topnotch.
    The King is called that for that reason.
    Otis Redding always stole the show.

    I think Marty Balin had one of the best voices ever in rock, he gets no recognition.

    One of my fave set of pipes is still the indefatigable Long John Baldry.

    And finally, who was better vocally than the Beach Boys? Nobody.
