15 Of The Best Vocalists Who Don't Get Enough Love On Sputnik

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER!
1Aerosmith
Toys in the Attic


Steven Tyler hadn't really 'found' his voice on Aerosmith's s/t, but he did on Get Your Wings and peaked by Toys in the Attic. His voice has probably been THE sound of hard rock ever since.
2Queensryche
Empire


Geoff Tate started off sounding like just another Halford/Dickinson/King Diamond wannabe, but at his peak he was capable of so much more. Power, range and great vocal tone.
3King's X
Dogman


Dug Pinnick is a treasure that far too few people have discovered. Progressive rock would be completely devoid of soul if not for Pinnick.
4Whitesnake
Whitesnake


David Coverdale has been oft-derided for being a Robert Plant clone, but tbh, the comparison doesn't do him justice because he's got a better voice than Plant.
5Heart
Dreamboat Annie


Ann Wilson: While most hard rock bands featur male vocalists singing like women, Heart actually had a female lead vocalist, and really, there's no competition. Power and range like you wouldn't believe.
6Prince
Purple Rain


Prince is better than pretty much everyone at pretty much everything, including singing. /story
7Foreigner
4


Lou Gramm is THE sound of blue-eyed soul. If there is any person whose voice I could have, it'd probably be Gramm's.
8King Diamond
Abigail


King Diamond can sing the pants off Halford and Dickinson in his sleep. His vocals are everything that make Metal awesome.
9U2
The Joshua Tree


Bono might be a colossal douche, but the guy can sing, and his voice hasn't dropped off the way most singers' do in their 40's.
10Seal
Seal


Seal might not have the most street cred as a soul singer, but if your voice can make someone like Heidi Klum overlook your face, then you're probably a very good singer.
11Cheap Trick
Cheap Trick


Robin Zander and Cheap Trick are the evolutionary link between the Beatles and Nirvana. He's the pop-rock gold standard.
12Skid Row
Slave to the Grind


Sebastian Bach is one of the most entertaining vocalists in hard rock and metal. There's no one more fun to imitate.
13The White Stripes
Icky Thump


I don't even like most of Jack White's music and his guitar-playing is overrated as fuck, but I've gotta admit he's a pretty talented and interesting vocalist.
14TesseracT
One


Dan Tompkins is pretty awesome. He overdubs his vocals too much, but when you can make out what he's singing it's pretty cool.
15Etched in Red
Dylate


Seth Boyce is a bit of a Chino Moreno clone, but he's probably the most dynamic vocalist I can think of after Mikael Åkerfeldt who one of the few who does harshes and cleans equally well.
