Best singing voices?


Recommended Posts

Not my favorites, but objectivly, just for the voice--

Annie Lennox, best female voice, and What's His Name - the original lead singer for Journey. Was it Steve Perry? See not my favorite voice =:P, I can't remember his name, but IMHO definatley the best male voice.

Little Richard and Paul Stanley. Little Richard's screamy falsetto is instantly recognizable, and Paul Stanley's wail is the voice of Rock and Roll. Roy Orbison has a voice like flowing honey, and AC/DC's late Bon Scott whiskey-soaked-cigarette-scorched voice loaned huge amounts of character to the original songs.

Chris Cornell- Soundgarden and Audioslave, just amazing and what a range.

John Lennon- had a great mellow voice

Michael Stipe- Say what you may about R.E.M, but Stipes got one helluva voice (he's the best current songwriter at least in my book)

other ones I like are

Janis Joplin

Elvis Costello

Jim Morrison
