    Elvis, Roy Orbi, Al green, Joni Mitchell...

    on modern stage and as a vocalist, the guy (i don"t rembember his name) form soundgarden is very impressive IMHO.

    Jagger in his prime. But, Chuck Berry, Otis Redding, James Brown, Sinatra, and everybody else you can mention. It gets into an apples and oranges thing.

    Diana Krall. Her smokey voice makes me want to be Elvis (no, not the dead one!)

    Two come to mind: Annie Lennox and Florence Welch.

    Seeing Annie sing may be a bucket list item.
  12. All around, top of my list, Elvis. There are others that can blow me away at times, but for consistency, its Elvis.

    She's amazing! I went to see the Eurythmics in the 80s and sat very near to Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Diana loved it but Charles was looking decidedly bored. I think Annie could have filled the place vocally without a mic. Definitely put her on your bucket list.
