my favorite singers

There are good singers, there are bad singers and there are my favorites
1Bruce Dickinson
The Chemical Wedding


Bruce Dickinson: The overwhelming, larger than life performance and mighty, but controlled voice make him my all time favorite. He combines high quality and unbelievable skills with intelligence and a great sense for theatre and humor. Whatever he does, he does well and with great conviction
2AC/DC
Let There Be Rock


Bon Scott: Though not a singer of enormous talents or abilities he personifies the rock 'n roll hero like no other. Actually I like his voice and screeching singing style, his attitude and pose. He is one of the legends of rock! He's a a rocker, He's a roller, He's a right out of controller, He's a wheeler, He's a dealer, He's a wicked woman stealer, He's a bruiser, He's a cruiser...He's a rockin' rollin' man
3Helloween
Pink Bubbles Go Ape


michael kiske: Almost on an equal footing with Dickinson, but less impressive, talented and varied. Still one of my favorites thanks to his nice timbre and sense of melody and his ablity to sing high and deep tones with control of breath
4Rainbow
Rising


Ronnie James Dio: Ranging from vulnerable and dreamy (Rainbow and Roger Glover and Friends) to strong and raw (Black Sabbath, Dio), his voice is grandiose and iconic. The small great singer is one of metal's true prophets
5Motorhead
Bastards


Lemmy: A legend in his own right, there was only one Lemmy and he will never be replaced or copied. His no nonsense, rude, gritty and powerful -sometimes even terrifying- voice set the standard for a whole generation
6Johnny Cash
American Recordings


Johnny Cash: His melancholic, deep, dark voice is otherworldly, always emotionally touching and at his best when combined with a sarcastic or ironic quality
7Triptykon
Melana Chasmata


Tom Warrior: The most evil and terrifying voice in music, but not without subtlety, intelligence, emotion and variety. On his best when he growls in an angry manner like a beast caged in the underworld. There is also a hint of New Wave in his voice
8Bryan Ferry
Let's Stick Together


Bryan ferry: A gentleman's voice, restrained and sultry, civilized and dreamlike
9Deep Purple
Deep Purple In Rock


Ian Gillan: Deep Purple's singer combines a bluesy feeling with soul, emotion and power, complementing the comparable talents of Blackmore, Lord and Paice. Famous for his otherworldy high shrieks
10Judas Priest
Sin After Sin


Rob Halford: Better in his lower register, though his high shrieks are devastating. In my opinion one of the first vocalists who left behind the blues inspired, whiny vocals and replacing them by a more reluctant, direct, powerful approach
11Alcatrazz
No Parole from Rock 'n' Roll


Graham Bonnet: 'mr. Las Vegas' did not fit the looks of Rainbow, but what a strong and potent voice. A really talented singer, and an honest, nice person. He sang with a bunch of guitar gods, like Blackmore, Malmsteen, Schenker, Vai. How many can say that?
12The Kinks
The Village Green Preservation Society


Ray Davies: I like his unsteady, hesitating singing style and his intelligent, ironic tone
13The Gathering
How to Measure a Planet?


Anneke Giersbergen: Her powerful, yet melodic and varied vocal quality defined the sound of The Gathering in their heydays
14Raven (ENG)
Wiped Out


John Gallagher: Is there a more characteristic hit or miss voice on this planet than his? Absolutely powerful, squealing style fitting the chaotic sound of the band
