Yeah yeah, we all know the story. Some awesome singers get all the credit (Mercury, Plant, Gillan, Orbison, Dio etc etc.), but others just seem to slip under the radar and don't end up getting the widespread attention they deserve. So AF, who are some singers you find are amongst the crème de la crème and deserve acknowlegement? And please, do post some examples of their work!
A few of mine, with some generally pretentious comments
- Wonderful gravelly, gutsy voice, great control and just generally an all-round badass. Still seems to have it, which is something not too many of his contemporaries can claim!
- In addition to being an absolute beast on the bass, the guy has one of warmest, moodiest voices this side of Greg Lake. Certainly makes up for his lack of range with his brooding, mature charm.
- Now, I know this is rather bizarre. However, before his ridiculously lame adult-contemporary phase, Bolton was a rawk 'n' roller through and through. His AOR-phase yielded some great (albeit rather dated) tunes, easily matching anything Perry or Gramm ever did.
