Vana's favorite singers?

I was wondering if you might list some Rock vocalists that you consider to be among the best of all time?

Maybe 5 to 10, or even more if you want?

You don't have to put them in any particular order.

I will put them in order....based on tonality, range, control and overall vibe! I have tried to emulate each one of these guys at one point....Phelps and Wiebe and Page the most, lately Daryl......There is a bit of all of them in what I do inheriantly...

David Phelps
Daryl Hall
Warren Wiebe
John Farnham
Richard Page
Lou Gramm
Richard Marx
Richie Sambora
Jimi Jamison
Joseph Williams

Each of these guys has influenced how I sing.....

DH one of the most underrated singers of all time. He can still bring it. Doesn't get the respect he deserves I believe because of some of Hall and Oates more lightweight hits like Kiss On My List and Private Eyes.

JV, wasn't disagreeing with you at all! I love those songs too. Pop classics.

I agree on Daryl Hall. I didn't realize Daryl's House went to TV. It was funny, yesterday at lunch, I was scanning the radio stations (Chicago radio is the worst in the country) and Hall & Oates "I Can't go for that" was on the black station...the real black station. I first thought, what rapper stole this for a new song, but I'll be damn they were playing Hall & Oates. Blue-eyed soul. I have their greatest hits and that is missing many songs. I wish I had saw them when they came around a few times the last few years.

I like the Richie Sambora mention as well. His first solo CD, Stranger In This Town is phenomenal. Blows Blaze of Glory away. Stranger in this Town may be a quiet 100% album. If not, it's real close - high 90's.

I know his name was brought up before when this topic was discussed in the Journey forum a few years ago, what about the lead singer from Frankie And The Knockouts?

I'd call it my favourite Bon Jovi album, but some over-hormoned chick on Twitter tore me a new asshole for daring to lump it in with BJ!

This is why he is number 1 on my list.....

When I try to sing tunes others have sung it takes a few minutes to learn the correct voicings, timbres and where and when to throttle and back off....and the overall vibe....

It took me a month before I could replicate what David did on this....

This is the single greatest live performance (MAYBE John Farnham) I have ever heard...F%^$#$G Brilliant!!!!!

I literally wept when I first heard this....I swear to god....he is number 1 on my list...by a LONG way!!!

A very humble JV.....

there are a couple of contenders in that catalog. This would be one of them....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_x6N94OEkZQ, although Vanetta Fields probably deserves the lions share of the credit, but the blending is simply sublime.

maybe my favorite vocal of his....Angels. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om8Whz3oclg&ob=av2e
