Seriously - how about listing those artists you like instead of scolding everyone else for keeping the Black Man down?


and for whoever was shocked that Bono wasn't on any lists, he's #3 on the first list.

Now, THAT'S the spirit!

You know whose voice I really like? Mark Lanegan. (ooh, I'm looping in the grunge thread!)

Chris Cornell has a great rock voice, but I never really cared for Soundgarden.

And just so my post has some diversity, I love Stevie Wonder's voice, Sam Cooke's voice, and Marvin Gaye's voice.

Cinjun Tate of Remy Zero should probably be on any list of the top 20 male vocalists. He should DEFINITELY be include ahead of many who are on the list in the OP.

Seriously though, if you're going to crap on my favorite singer, at least do it in comprehensible manner.

Freddie Mercury is hard to top...just amazing.

I think Thom Yorke has a great voice, same for Jack White...Neil Young. Eddie Vedder. Bono.

F'ing kids.

A greater crime than the Mercury absence.

That was beautiful.

And Brau, are you sure Otis is all right in that picture? He looks like he's in vast amounts of pain. That poor, poor, wonderfully-voiced man.

No particular order...

Bono
Jeff Buckley
Roy Orbison
Marvin Gaye
Smokey Robinson
Freddie Mercury
Robert Plant
Peter Gabriel
Bruce Springsteen (not a "pretty" voice, but so much emotion)
Eddie Vedder (ditto)
Morrissey (so smooooth)
David Bowie
Otis Redding
Roger Daltry
Chris Cornell
Rod Stewart (lots of subpar material, but still a great voice)
Curtis Mayfield
Fran Healy
Michael Hutchence
Johnny Cash (just because there is and was no one like him)
