    Best Singer of all time/ Favorites?

    Just throwing a topic to get to know a few people and hopefully have a few stimulating conversations.
    I just want to know your favorite singers, or who you believe is the greatest singer of all time. Any type of music. A few reasons for your thinking would be appreciated. Just so that I would have something to talk to you about.

    So I will start.
    My favorite singer is Freddie Mercury, without a doubt. The range of his voice in terms of notes as well as musical styles. Also he had a delightful flexibility in the timber of his singing voice, running from a very harsh "rock" sound to a very lyric quality, all very naturally.

    As far as best singer of all time. I believe that I will have to hear some arguments from my fellow posters before I can make a decision for myself.

    Mike Patton but close second would be Dax Riggs....I like dynamic vocal ranges but I have a sweet spot in my ear for unique voices like Bob Dylan and Tom Waits and beautiful voices like Otis Redding or Frank Sinatra. I can't really find a scale to gauge these voices to see who is better because they are just their own like you hear them and you know them Jim Morrison's voice you know it when you hear it, Glenn Danzig you know it.....and i thank the gods they don't all sound the same...

    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Yeah I definitely agree with your opinion on some of the more unique voices in music. Bob Dylan is definitely one of my favorite singers, his voice to me is transcendental. Part of my problem with the music today is that everyone is really starting to sound too similiar. I'm not trying to say that everyone does sound the same, but it just seems that vocalists today are trying to hard to sound like someone else.

    I've noticed a Britrock Punk False-falsetto going I call it the Brat-Punk Whine I hear it in too many songs and it's annoying how they all try to get a little sex pistols accent in their voices....but they can't take all the blame cause they wouldn't be selling records if more people found it as hackneyed as I do...

    These are good choices!!!
    Love Bungle, FNM, and who could forget Traveling Wilburys for unique harmonies?

    Been getting into more harmonizing vocal stuff lately...
    Picked up on the Shaw-Blades "Influence" CD, that was nice cause it revisits the original artists... Then cranked up some old James Taylor,
    The Eagles, and Chicago...

    Have Problems?... Chances are its due to overpopulation

    Me I've been back in highscool daze with Shannon Hoon, Scott Weiland Eddie Vedder, Lynn Strait, Kurt, Thom and so many others with awesome voices...

    Even though Lynn wasn't a beautiful voice it was unique and set the stage for what came in the next few years

    gotta love those lyrics too...
    can't forget the set of lungs on Lajon

    Such great voices right there at the turn of the millenium


    And almost all of those guys can trace back to Phil Anselmo, Glenn Danzig, Mike Patton, etc. as big influences....

    As far as power, vocal range and versatility I'm going to go with Freddy Mercury.

    Honorable mention to James Keenan -



    In his live Tool performances he can yell as long as he can on the studio albums.
