    If I were able to have anybody's voice it would be his.

    I second that.

    However I think his voice is still top notch. Maybe even better as he's aged.

    And a shameless plug for the drummer who I've gigged with and who played on my album. A Bonham disciple of the highest order and the best drummer I've ever shared a stage with.

    Yep. We play Only One now in my new band cause the singer has such great pipes! Very clean, operatic rather than raspy but very nice!!

    I sure wish I could hit the "love" button on all of this! (I'm going to push for a love button, in stead of a like button...).

    Ever wonder why it is that particular voices can give us such a... what's the word? Zing? I understand why Patsy Cline does it to me; my grandma used to sing her songs to me before bed each night, when I was a tiny human person and their voices were almost identical (my grandma had a hint more Ella Fitzgerald in her). Apart from some amazing scratch tapes that I've recently come into possession of, Patsy's recordings were the closest thing to hearing her voice- and she was my savior, growing up. And she taught me to sing lol
    But why, oh why, does Kurt Cobain's voice give me chills? Didn't my dear ol gams teach me better!? She would actually be appalled :lol:

    Some more voices for MY listening pleasure :applause:

    Sounds awesome! I used to have pretty decent, clear pipes... but recently, I've gained this weird rasp that came out of nowhere. I'll either work it out with the mountain method, or I'll let it be and see what happens. I mean, it sure doesn't hurt Melissa or Janis :cool:

    The olde man in me would say Tom Waits or Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill. The part of me that is trying to stay a little more current would go with Liam Gallagher or Rachel Nagy…

    Bob Dylan. Not the voice itself...but the words he is saying.

    Muddy Waters. He is so bold and brash and natural. When I first heard him I was a teenager. He was singing loud and proud about stuff I was still too intimidated to talk about for the most part.

    Eric Clapton. He just sings some of my favourite songs with such heart and inflection. Aside from guitar playing, he's always been one of my favourite singers.
