Vocalists that I think are pretty cool

These are some vocalists that I like quite a bit. I'm a vocalist myself, so as a hazard of the trade, I often find a lot of singers that inspire me and influence me. Now, there's a really huge grey area on what exactly makes a "good" vocalist. Not every vocalist on this list can actually "sing" per say, but I enjoy the quality (or lack of) of their voice and their delivery and performance is also incredibly important for me. In the descriptions I've included some of my personal favourite performances of theirs and their vocal range where I was able to find it cause that can be interesting to look at (keep in mind that vocal range is not an accurate measure of penis size, and having a big range doesn't necessarily make you a good singer or mean I enjoy their music. Example: Steven Tyler, bite me). No particular order, just whenever they popped into my head.
