    I defy anyone to sing along with Van Halen recordings and keep up with DLR and all his yipping and yapping and those 'wows' or whatever his trademark sound . It's very difficult.

    Roger Daltrey..seen the Who live and Daltrey is a terrible vocalist...all of his studio work sounds great but in concert it's like scraping nails on a chalkboard!

    Her name keeps coming up, yet she appeared on *lots* of backing vocal tracks for other folks hits. Again, this isn't a thread for people to just insert random names into.

    David Lee Roth, bar none. I am classically trained, and sang in rock bands for several years. His cocaine/tequila voice gives me the willys.

    Here here. These suggestions that "this person with a decades-long career and worldwide acclaim is actually secretly terrible at his/her job" are pretty ridiculous. "I don't fancy Stevie Nicks' voice," doesn't carry the same heft, I guess...

    Her name keeps coming up? Maybe there's a reason? I don't feel like it's my fault for entering my opinion? I hadn't seen her posted yet, so I did.

    Willie Nelson has the voice of an angel...not anymore, but he is like 150 years old. Him in his prime is better than 90% of the greatest singers
