    Bon Scott is another excellent choice.
    I love "If you want blood...", during "High Voltage", he's like, "Hiiiiiigggghhhh....HIIIIIIGGGHHHHHHH!!!!"

    Phil Mogg in UFO always had an excellent voice, as well.
    I love 70's era Steven Tyler, he was flat-out awesome.
    "I'm Baaaaaaaack!!!"

    Or the last verse in "Draw the line," when he goes ballistic.
    "You see my crying" has that great, middle part where he gets way up high, "...and i'm never gonna let you down."

    Tyler was unreal on those old Aero records.

    Ah yes... How could I forget Steve Tyler?

    James Hetfield in his vocal prime gets a nod from me.
    I also wish that I could do vocals like Abbath from Immortal.

    Mick Jagger.

    I was watching Shine a Light last night and Jagger's voice sounded sooo damn good in that movie (he was 63 years old when Martin turned his cameras on the band). And I'm with you, Ravenna - Christina has such a beautiful voice - She sung Live With Me with Mick and they sounded cool in that Scorcese movie.
    Wolfgang Van Halen - "I love being a bass player. It’s just me and Al — a groove section. Just boom, boom, boom, and we’re good". GW

    Edward Van Halen - "What is next for Wolf is the next record and the next tour. He’s no different than I am. Music is his life. If he goes back to school, I’ll probably go with him.” GC

    I hate Christina, hate the tone of her voice.
    She's also too overpowering, never subtle.

    Alicia Keys really impressed me on her first two records.
    I was knocked out by how a "modern" artist could have so much depth to her vocals & songwriting.
    She sounded like a 70's artist.

    Her first record is my favorite.
    I love that song, "Troubles."

    I'll agree here. Christina does have a habit of "over emoting" at times. Especially at the end of a song. She goes for the throat. I'd still like to squeeze her buns though!

    Alicia has it going on and yeah, you nailed it with her being like a 70's artist. I see the same thing in her. Reminds me of Carole King for some reason.

    I've heard her be subtle, but rarely, I'd have to admit. I still like her clearness and her strength. It's the vocal calisthenics that seem to be "The Style" of her and many of her contemporaries (Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and yes, Celine Dion) that bothers me - there's no need for a 47 note vocal run to prove that you can sing, but they all do it. When she gets away from that silliness, I think she does alright. She certainly kicked butt on the remake of "Lady Marmalade" she did several years ago.

    Alicia Keyes? I'm not overly impressed by her - I mean, she can sing, and her keyboard work is good. But I guess I'm just not enamored of her style of music - I just don't hear the depth in her vocals that you do. Ah well, vive la' difference!!!
    remember....after the fire, after all the rain
    i will be the flame.....

    Lou Gramm should definitely be mentioned in this thread.

    And I'd add Rod Stewart (circa A Night on the Town).
