Re: Top 5 Vocalists in Rock Music
Glenn Hughes - Incredible range, tonality, soul, can change the texture of his voice with ease, just an all around incredible singer. Theres no one who can touch him in my opinion in the world of rock.
Geoff Tate - An innovator when it comes to the power metal sound. Sure, there were people who did it before, but no one did it better than he did. The early stuff like The Warning and Rage For Order are incredible. His voice has changed drastically since, but he still can pull off any song from his past, just not with the same easy tonality.
Steven Tyler - Brought soul and blues to rock. Has been able to maintain his voice and improve throughout his career, with only a few setbacks here and there regarding vocal issues. He's got one of the coolest tonalities in the business, and probably the most distinctive.
Rob Halford - Huge range, incredible control of his tone as well. He can go from screaming something like Painkiller, to something with perfect vibrato such as Angel. The new Nostradamus CD displays just how varied his vocals can be.
Paul Stanley - Incredible singer, incredible sound.
As far as non rock singers, NO ONE can touch these two:
Stevie Wonder and Patti LaBelle.
For those of you who aren't as familiar with Patti LaBelle other than the hooker song , check out these 2 videos:
and here she is with Joe Cocker (who I think is one of the most soulful singers of all time)
Most of you are surely familiar enough with Stevie Wonder that theres no need for video links
