Big Grin Best Male Vocalists?

i dunno, where's the thread for the best vocalists?

my top 20 list hereby goes as:

20 serj tankian - the system of a down guy takes singing to a new level with his unique armenian style

19 win butler - the arcade fire's front man - inobtrusive, yet his vocals suit the quirkiness and thus enigma which have enveloped this group

18 dave gahan - of depeche mode - in his prime - around the Violator period, his voice could be powerful and reach tremendous emotional depths

17 jeff buckley

16 roger daultrey - of the who

15 dave gilmour - of pink floyd - we all know what he sounds like

14 jonsi - from sigur ros

13 liam gallagher - of oasis - a total tosspot and a half but a great singer

12 chris martin - of coldplay

11 kurt cobain - better known for his guitar work but lets not dismiss his vocal stylings

10 jack white - the white stripes - leading vocalist

9 bryan ferry

8 damon albarn

7 mick hucknall

6 david byrne - influential in that he made it ok to have a weird sounding voice

5 michael hutchence

4 thom yorke - he has the weirdest voice, yet when you put patience and time into devoting time into the lyrics and the way he delivers

3 bono - we all know about him and what hes capable of

2. michael stipe - r.e.m. - has the best voice for a normal person, the production of his vocals on the 'automatic for the people' album

1. joshua homme - queens of the stone age - probably the ideal front man for any band, tall, clean cut and someone you dont want to mess with, sweet soulful sounding pipes

I would have put Yorke and Martin on the 'worst' list. White is certainly unique in his vocal delivery and it works for his songs but I would hardly call him a great voice or singer. Same can actually be said of Lennon, Cobain and Rose. And where is our Bono? You all forgot him!

Please tell me we're just talking about lead singers of bands, because the first list had ZERO black men, and the last one only listed George Clinton?

Jim Morrison and Bono definitely have to be in the top 5 somewhere. I love both of the lists that have been given so far, though.

I defaulted to rock bands, yes. That's where my head is at usually. Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Smoky Robinson, etc all would have made a list if I just included everyone. Most of the rock guys would probably disappear. And I guess I also approached it from "front man" more than "vocalist."

Damn, Jim Morrison - I totally forgot about him. And Chris Cornell.

My list = D- .

I don't even know what this means. Michael is normal?

Wierd list, some of those can't even properly sing.

And who wants a clean cut rock star?

Well, you could just list him yourself, dear heart.

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