    well, its actually 'laugh out loud,' but whatever. :p

    back to the original topic,

    I've found Coheed and Cambria to be another band with great music, but horrible vocals.

    I enjoyed Run DMC and early Beastie Boys. Once it became cop killers, woman rapers in the songs, not so much.

    Oh really? Says who? You? I'm supposed to take your word on that? You're (notice I didn't say "your") a guy who mangles the English language and peppers his posts with idiotic, juvenile abbreviations and misspellings. Talk about 6th grade! You need to go back to school, pal.

    If I feel like using the word "so," a perfectly good word in all respects, I will do so without comments from someone like you.

    Or is it "u." Eh?

    Hi Jeff ..Yep Forgot them - i agree - I didnt mind Run DMC esp with Aerosmith .... But they were a bit Benny Hill and must've always been doing comical face plants. I did also extensively fight for my right to party - exercising it as often as possible. So yep. Can't think if any other Rap ( apart from some of Chuck Berry's poetry ) that i can get into.
    Why the hell did they get into the Gangsta crap??? There's probably some talented funky Blues, Soul n Rock n Rollers hidden under those tasteful gold chains.
    What a waste.

    You got to be kidding! Keith Richards is one of the worst singers I've ever heard ever. Great guitar player but terrible singer, listen to Memory Motel or She's my Little Rock and Roll (T&A).

    I like She's My Little Rock & Roll. I've grown tired of Jagger, though. His voice works for me on songs like SHATTERED, though.

    I agree Razor, pretty silly little thing too be concerned over ,the way a person abbreviate words, can't be very much important going on in there life, if they worry over such small stuff.

    Funny this comes up. I just saw the flaming lips! Wayne Coyne is criminally talented as a player/song-writer/lyricist, but he cannot sing for the life of me.

    If we are going to include Jazz drummers, I'll take Elvin Jones and Max Roach over Rich. For Rock drummers, Peart is technically amazing, but lacks the swing and groove that make musicality IMO (though I will also argue that such things are very difficult, to impossible, to argue in any absolute sense). I'd much rather listen to Stewart Copeland, Keith Moon, Topper Headon, or Dave Barabossa than Peart any day. Bonham too, and I'm not much of a Zep fan.

    As for the OP, I can't appreciate a band as great if I don't like the vocals. Good maybe. But not great. As for the Chili Peppers, Geidis isn't great live, he's got intonation problems that seem to have something to do with being too involved in showmanship. But I think he sounds great on recordings. He's as central to their sound as Flea's bass. Maybe more.

    I disagree. Jagger can kill. "100 Years Ago," "Sympathy for the Devil," "Blood Red Wine," "Lady Jane." He's a great stylist. No one has to like the style, but he's a great stylist nonetheless.

    Steward is an amazing drummer, in the top 5 in my book.

    My favourite artist of all time is Hank Williams. Also among the giants in my life were Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Jimmie Rodgers, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristifferson and an Aussie (a legend over here) called Slim Dusty.
    I can't imagine that any of these wonderful performers would make it past the pavement OUTSIDE the audition hall for American Idol.

    All the young people who get onto that show (though I confess I've never seen it) have WONDERFUL voices, I'm sure.

    I also like great singers like Roy Orbison and harry Nielson, too, but...
    I don't really give a fat rat's patootie what someone's voice is like if they can move me and make my heart beat just a little bit stronger when I hear them.

    See Rick, common ground.

    I agree, Stewart Copeland is one heck of a drummer.

    By the way, you spelled Stewart wrong.

    Work with me here, Rick.

    As for the Stones, I think the voice fit the music. Raunchy, unpolished. That's why Keef on T&A is so good. It's bad in the literal sense, just like my little rock and roll. All TnA, baby.

    Van Halen with Sammy Hagar, Sammy Hagar's voice/vocals annoy me, his personality is annoying, he even looks annoying. Sammy Hagar is the worst thing that ever happened to the Van Halen Band, with the exception of Eddie's misgivings.

    Well, we need to find our common ground too. I wasn’t a Van Halen fan during their heyday when I was in Jr high. I couldn’t stand David's voice or obnoxious behavior...hated Jump. I was al about Zepp and Lizzy then.

    When Sammy started with Halen I started listening to them. I actually bought Balance. I started digging them.

    A buddy about 5 years ago had free tickets to the Roth Show here at House of Blues, I went and discovered the greatness of Roth. His showmanship and full tilt give it all you got attitude won me over big. Now I love the guy and am routing for the new line up. I'm hopeful they do put out the secret Album. But I know Sammy was the only way I gave them a chance and turned around. Now because of Sammy I'm a fan of all Van Halen. I go back and it’s like listening for the first time.

    The Grateful Dead!
    Fans of The Grateful Dead like to wax about the Dead's ability to harmonize, but whatever they want to call it, the Dead could never harmonize well. And Jerry's voice was probably the worst - God bless his soul.
