Wouldn't the term "vocalist" mean singing? If so, rap can't be included, as there's no actual singing per se. I would think "rapper" is a seperate catagory, no? Oh well...anyway....

1. Robert Plant - Zeppelin
2. Ronnie James Dio
3. Geoff Tate - Queensryche
4. Freddie Mercury - Queen
5. Ann Wilson - Heart
6. Aretha Franklin
7. Russell Allen - Symphony X
8. Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden
9. Stevie Nicks - Fleetwood Mac
10. Cyndi Lauper

Ann could belt them out.. good strong lungs!

Oh damn.. I forgot Rob Halford too..

BTW.. I always liked Daltrey.. not one of my top ten... but just to take this off-topic for a moment...
about 2 years ago I had the opportunity to see a musical production of "A Christmas Carol" on broadway....
Roger Daultry played/sang the part of Scrooge... it was... simply amazing!

If you are talking about straight up voice, then Mariah Carey would top my list. I'm not sure of my top ten, but Marvin Gaye would be in there somewhere also.There have been too many good ones to put it into a top ten, and the fact that I like all different kinds of music makes it that much more difficult.

Tell me about it! Too many good singers to narrow down to 10. After I made my list I was like "Damn, forgot this one!" :lol:

Morrison was a good writer and performer, but he can never be considered a great vocalist. Too monotone. All his singing sounds the same.

Sinatra in his early years yes, towards the end....eeek.

Who??? :lol:

Good list... however, if you're going to mention Coverdale, you have to add Ian Gillian also (since they both were front men for Deep Purple)... his work with Deep Purple was at times amazing (Sweet Child In Time), and was almost stellar as Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar ... JMHO ;)
