Topic: BEST POP- ROCK-METAL etc. SINGER
This is again a very tricky one, but I love to hear the opinion of a lot of people. I could add classical singers, like Pavarotti. But this one is for all non classical singers. I would be pleased if one does count the "voice capacity", meaning voice range, intonation, variation, like from low to high, harmony is also included. MY LIST, maybe strange, but that's why I ask this and why I talked about POWER voices.
1/ Axl Rose: tremendous voice, can do a lot with his voice
2/ David Lee Roth (ex VAN HALEN).
3/ Paul Mc Cartney: just listen to yesterday and compare it with his harder songs, what a voice!!!
4/ (don't laugh) THE GIBB brothers, barry, robin, if you see how beautiful they could sing, more explicit, the brothers voices together, it still gives me goosebumps.
5/ Ian Gillan, Deep Purple: challenge: try to sing child in time.
6/ The righteous brothers, especially unchained melody, and if you don't agree, wikipedia does.
7/ Robert Plant (good ol' led zeppelin)
8/ Crosby, Stills, Nash: again that fenomenal harmony.
9/ Wilsons, beach boys of course
10/ Joe Cocker.
And I can still go on, but as I wrote, I tried to analyse there "vocal powers" and in my eyes very important, harmony, that's why the bee gees are on 4, they could sing from low to normal up to the falsetto voices, like staying alive. But this is only me speaking,so what do YOU think. I think it is worth to make your list, we've got guitarplayers and now vocalists.
Thanks for participating, if you have the opportunity, tell me your reasons why. There are a lot of great singers. Zucchero: his voice is a little bit like Joe Cocker's voice, AND WHO DOES NOT REMEMBER HIS SCREAM GOING TO THE BONES in Woodstock 69??
- MY GUITAR PLAYS EVERY STYLE = BLUES, ROCK, METAL, so I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT.
