I'm trying to think of one to pick myself and I can't. I think I've created a kenundrum.
hey @Sapient I want you to sing like him next year!!!! thats the challenge hahahah
Man, I love Barlows singing.
when Phil 1st joined Pantera, he was like Halford on steroids...
but, he also had the low tone w/ a manly growl (no offense to Rob).
From the list, I'd probably have to go w/.....
just because, he had some really good & original stuff in his day & he's still doing it & sounding good. I mean, how old is he?
I was just looking it up earlier too, Hagar is 74...
Robert Plant 73 but he hasn't weathered as well.
Halford has had a good run, although, listening to some of the new shows, he's not singing his high parts pretty much at all.
Who knows how some of the younger guys will hold up, but, Dickinson has lost a lot of his sheen...
Tommy Shaw has consistently had a good voice, but, more of an ensemble singer. Sort of like Rik Emmet.
I haven't got a lot into Dream Theatre, from what I've heard, he sounds pretty good.
Jeff Scott Soto is a good singer, that's been doing it for some time, as well as Mark Boals...
Then, there's ol' Iron Lung Graham Bonnet, like him or not, he had a range & could belt it out...
Klaus Meine should be up there, as he has a very musical quality, as well as range...
I probably muddied up the waters, more than helped...
Ian can rip it up.
Sebastian Bach.. (Skid Row era).
he has the notes didnt he?
Yea, he could, I don't know how he sings these days.
nothing like before bro. skidrow was one kickass band back in the day.
Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of riffing
That was one of the cool things about Ronnie ,he spanned eras and totally brought his doo wop showbiz stage mannerisms to his metal career
Besides Brad Delp, I would agree. He had a butt-kicking desperation in his vox, sounded like it was from the streets. Heard best in songs like Love Gun.
Yup, R.J. Dio as well. A more dramatic lyricist.
Along w/ Halford being 70, so is Coverdale...
The Judas Priest page posted a happy birthday to him yesterday w/ this image...
I've got to go with Bruce Dickinson because he's made so much more of his life than just being a top flight singer. He's a fully qualified experienced commercial airline transport pilot certified to fly 747s among many other things. He's done a lot of things with his life.
Is it possible to be underrated and a living legend at the same time?
Still puts out good stuff too. I think I missed the most recent release but I bought a new one a few years ago that was really good. The reformed Stooges album was great (Ready to Die, 2013).
Couldn't vote. Too many much better vocalists were left off the list..
JMP45 mentioned Steve Marriot, he was one of them.
Wow! Dude's got pipes!
Me? Sure no prob ...you mean his deep low notes right??
Bruce is the cock of the walk , if he wants more cowbell we should give him more cowbell!
Sap, bro this is your thread ? No plant?
Now I do give you credit because you have the big 4 Dickinson, Halford, Tate, Dio and one of my favs Chris Cornell.James Hetfield is a top contender. I wanted to vote Halford but between them I like Bruce’s solo work more so he got my vote. Those 2 for me forged metal , I bet Tate would agree.
