    Indeed.
    She/Karen was so pitch perfect imo and a pretty skilled drummer.
    Her and Judith Durham from The Seekers are tied for Most Amazing voices in Pop/Rock/Folk.
    No auto-tune no production magic just straight up Amazing vocals that stood out among st many,many Greats.

    Good thread T.

    I think I read through all 100+ posts.

    Not everybody accepted your invitation to comment about why they enjoy the singers they mentioned.

    Here are some of mine, just thinking about some who I did not see mentioned already.

    Joe Cocker:
    Because he puts all his energy into it.
    Heck, he often can't even hit the high notes because his voice has given out - but you can tell from the look on his face what note you would be hearing.

    Albert King
    It's hard to say why. I just love to hear his voice.
    Notions such as depth, richness, resonance and calm come to my mind.
    Albert King had LOTS of all that.

    (Note to self: it's possible that listening to Albert King could be an anti-anxiety therapy.)

    Rob Halford
    Ronnie James Dio
    Bruce Dickinson

    All three of those for the same reason. Excellent range, excellent tone, good at singing with or without grit. Powerful voices.

    Lou Gramm - Probably my favorite non-metal singer. Just has a great voice, I don't know how to articulate why.
    David Lee Roth - Van Halen is a huge influence on me. Roth is wild, crazy, funny, and though technically he isn't a great singer I think he's a perfect fit for the band when he's in shape.

    Honorable Mentions:
    Glenn Hughes
    Chuck Billy
    Joe Lynn Turner
    Ian Gillan
    Phil Anselmo
