best male vocals ever...

Recommended Posts

I've always thought Steve Perry, Steve Winwood, and Don Henly had the best voices in rock, just for the sheer effortless quality with which they hit and maintain those notes.

A comment going back a couple of posts. Concerning that walk that Chuck Berry "used" to do. He called it the duck walk. Honey that man still does it, every couple weeks at a club in St Louis called Blueberry Hill, in what else- The Duck Room. We go down there every so often and let me tell you, that man still rocks. He's 75!!!

I totally agree. Levi Stubbs rocked. Black guys have some of the coolest and most interesting voices. Like Louis Armstrong. And Otis Redding.

Levi Stubbs was the voice of the plant in the movie, "Little Shop of Horrors" ---- "Feed me!" He should have won an Oscar in the Best Man-Eating Plant category.

Guys like Sam Cooke, David Ruffin and Bill Withers are my pick, but on the Rock side, how about Gregg Allman? I can't think of any other Rock vocalist who sings with such passion, yet makes it easy to understand the words, even live.

i'm resurrecting this thread to say:

1) i'm proud to have discovered that the beautiful jeff was discussed on these boards before my arrival albeit far too infrequently

2) that jeff is the most beautiful singer i've ever heard, my favourites of his (voice wise) probably being (it's so hard to choose) lover, you should've come over, everybody here wants you and calling you (on the sin-é legacy)

and

3) nobody mentioned jack black - he has an incredible voice but it isn't recognised because of his comedic context!

also not mentioned (i think) morrissey - his work with the smiths was perfect. oh and i'm loving the guy from scissor sisters voice right now.

other honourable mentions definitely go to freddie mercury (wow), tim buckley (shivers), al green (such technique), billy corgan (perfect for his music), kurt cobain (so d*mn angsty) and so many many others..... i can't list them all! also a few irish boys - glen, mark, damo, kittser, q... etc
