Dead-heat tie in both the male and female categories-- I can't pick just one of each.
Just to name a few
Outstanding choices everyone. You can’t go wrong with any of them. IMHO
Loved to see Jackie Wilson mentioned
Dave Gahan / Martin Gore (depeche mode)
Steve Perry / Arnel Pineda
I was soooooooooooooo in love with her
A straight banger.
Otis Redding, Bob Marley.
And so many others.
That is not even funny...even as a joke.
Female- Dusty Springfield
Male- Howlin' Wolf
Bob Dylan. He can't sing but he dares. He's an enabler.
Male: John Doe (X, the Knitters), Marty Balin (Jefferson Airplane), Lux Interior (the Cramps), Neil Young, and Jeffrey Lee Pierce (the Gun Club)
Female: Neko Case, Joni Mitchell, Grace Slick (in her prime with the Airplane), Exene Cervenka (with John in X, the Knitters) and Shirley Manson (Garbage)
Honorable Mentions to a few that (like Dylan) aren't technically great singers, but do a lot with what they have: Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Paul Kantner, and everybody from Sonic Youth.
its funny Just recently I have been listening to this young lady, Daniela Andrade doing her version of La Vie En Rose. I have so many singers I really like. all styles and voices too But this is my latest fav. And me a rock guy [email protected]@
Maybe I'm a tad old fashioned when it comes to honest to God, pure talented singing, so good you could watch it light up the "exact pitch" LED on a chromatic tuner...
(1) Perry Como.
(2) Ray Price.
(1) Patsy Cline.
(2) Ella Fitzgerald.
These are always tough questions for me, because there are just so many....plus...there are people who I think sing the best, and then there are people who are my favorites, but are not technically great singers, and then some of the older singers who are my favorites when they were in their prime (and maybe not so much now)......and my mind changes on them every day....lol
But....a quick list of who is on my mind right now....in no order:
Paul McCartney, Ian Anderson (a pre-1975 Ian Anderson, I should say), Rob Halford, Tony Bennett, Stephen Stills, Ian Gillan
For women, again, in no order:
Edie Brickell, Yvonne Elliman, Melanie Safka, Joni Mitchell, Lisa Gerrard
And again, I'm leaving out MANY from both genders.
Oh....and this isn't technically one person...it's a group....but I LOVE the Andrews Sisters.
