Greatest rock voice?

Recommended Posts

Guest onlynik

For me it would have to be Freddie Mercury, he had a great range with pure passion to go with it.

The Patton. His voice is just amazing. In fact I was thinking that to myself this afternoon while listening to "Point And Click" and "God Hates A Coward" by Tomahawk. High-pitched, deep-pitched, growls, screams, delicate whispers... Mike Patton has it ALL!

I am a rock ignoramus (I prefer Townsend's plaintive demos to Daltrey's overkill), but if I had to pick a "rock" voice I second Robert Plant, with Ian Gillan in there somewhere. Others I like include Terry Reid, Jeff Buckley (and his Dad), Roger Chapman and Kevin Coyne.

You too? I thought I was the only one!

I don't mind Daltrey on early stuff like My Generation etc, but as gets more sure of himself the feeling disappears. Pete doing 'So sad about us' on Scoop is wonderful, despite being cut off too soon.

Talking of vocal ranges (as Hog was)...Jeff & Tim Buckley could fairly swoop and soar. Anyone else like Yma Sumac the 50s singer, supposedly from the Andes? She's got an amazing range!!

Devin Townsend (shock horror) He has a vocal range Mercury could of only dreamed of.

See, much as i love you Hog and have enhoyed the Devin stuff you've sent me, you're just being silly ;)

Go and listen to A night at the Opera, or Sheer heart attack and hear the amazing different styles of singing.

Cheers

Stuart
