best vocalists

35 posts in this topic

Doesnt matter, Man or Woman, country or soul, great lyrics or great dynamics, metal screamer or smooth jazz operater So tell me who can really sing ? no big lists please, I could make one with hundreds of names. What vocalist really set you back the most when you first heard them and may have gone further than previous favorites ? Try to make a pick or two. Im looking for the best :) Edited by razoredge

For women: Shania Twain or Faith Hill, hands down. Ask me ten years ago and I would have said Mariah Carey, but she made a conscious decision to waste her talent. Emancipation of Mimi is horrible. Kelly Clarkson deserves some mention. Men: This one's a little muddier for me, but I'll go with Chad Kroeger and James Hetfield as two of the best male rock singers.

Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin come to mind immmediately when thinking upon this subject. Modern day artists (Female) that I think have good voices are Faith Hill, Christina Aguilera (She does have good vocals admit it), Kelly Clarkson, Shannon Curfman, Amanda Marshall. Male Artists: Corey Taylor from Stone Sour, Marc Broussard, and Paul McCoy from the 12 Stones. Thats what comes to me at the moment and thats some of the artists in my winamp playlist right now.

I'm in total agreement with this man right here, and add Chino Moreno for my second pick

Robert Plant is the king of rock singers, easily. Not only did he have an amazing voice, but he used it more like an instrument than any other, using vocal melody to really enhance the feel of the song. For someone newer, Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria has some amazing range.

Does me singing in the shower count? No? Oh.. well let me see... Female: Alicia Keys. She can really reach those high and low octives. She has great vocal range and her lyrics are more soul and not skank like so many female artists out there today. Don't really have a favorite male singer since they're all pretty much the same sound and all sing about skateboarding or being depressed that they didn't get the new Sony PSP game.

*Lil' Jon voice*
- Sometimes I think that I am all alone in this world, and I have no-one to go to.
- What??!??

Seriously though, I really didn't expect anyone to even know who she was, never mind Weeping Tile. They are interesting, but I still like her first solo disc the best.

Whos, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell and Scott Weiland ?

[post="28585"]<{POST_SNAPBACK}>[/post]


Layne Staley (RIP): Alice in Chains
Chris Cornell: Formerly Temple of the Dog (became Pearl Jam), Soundgarden, now Audioslave
Scott Weiland: Formerly Stone Temple Pilots, now Velvet Revolver



Speaking of Audioslave and VR - there is a quote I saw in a magazine I found quite ridiculous. Here is some history first so you all understand.

Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine both broke up, and the singer from Soundgarden basically joined Rage to form Audioslave. Guns 'n' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots both broke up, and the singer from STP joined GnR to form Velvet Revolver.

Brad Wilk (bassist of Audioslave): I just don't get Velvet Revolver. The whole "supergroup" thing seems so contrived.

Hello? YOU are IN a supergroup, one that couldn't possibly be more similar to Velvet Revolver history wise!

Nah... I'm always turning it off whenever that crap is on. Those bands are all over the place in America. I listen to more of the older bands like the Rolling Stones or the Beatles.

Well I was hoping for more responces and ideas on this but ?? So that night I was listeneing to Queensryche "The Warning" and was influenced to finally ask here being how there seemed to be many music tastes and interests here. I was glad to see two others imeadiatly said Geoff Tate. He could sing Opera with the best of the Tenors, or he could go to Broadway and do any musical with power, passion and intensity never imagined. However the best thing about Tate is he sings his own stuff, does his own thing, its progressive modern, not something by a classic composer or modern playwrite. All creative and origional. I was glad to see a few of the R&B vocalists mentioned as well as one of my old favorites Robert Plant. :)

My top five off the top of my head, this wasn't easy. These also change sometimes, except #1

THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS:

5) Chad Gray from Mudvayne
4) Sully Erna from Godsmack.
3) Randy Blythe from Lamb Of God
2) Dez Fafara from DevilDriver (formerly of Coal Chamber)
1) James Hetfield from MetallicA (Will always be the ultimate front man IMO)

VERY honorable mentions: off of the top of my head include David Draiman (Disturbed) Jonathan Davis (KoRn) Cliff Rigano (Dry Kill Logic) Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) Rob Zombie (Rob/White Zombie) Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) Wayne Static (Static X) Martin Cock (American Head Charge) Lajon Witherspoon (7Dust) Rob Flynn (Machine Head) & the old singer of Drowning Pool (Not sure what his name was)
