    Richie Kotzen used to be until he blew everybody away in Winery Dogs.

    I forgot to mention Bonnie Raitt. She is beyond awesome.

    And James Brown. Linda Ronstadt was amazing.

    No lie, I love that cover of “Guilty” Bonnie Raitt did back in the day. That song reminds me of another criminally underrated vocalist, Dan McCafferty of Nazareth. Maybe we should do a sub thread of best Randy Newman covers...

    For some reason I read “misery” instead of guilty and started humming this



    Such a great collaboration, not bad for a wee waltz!:D

    An under-rated duo

    Yeah, I agree. Vince would absolutely not fit in with The Eagles.
    There is a video of him doing Peaceful Easy Feeling, and honestly, it just doesn't work.

    Dude ... do you always have to be so bitter and negative?
    It's just a fun, little post ... geez.

    I like Vince as an Eagle. I also like that they didn’t try to replace Frey with a “sound alike.” No doubt he’s different, but I think he does it well.

    I’m also surprised by great singers that aren’t even lead vocalists in their bands. Deen Castronova (Journey), Richie Kotzen (Mr. Big), and Todd Kerns (Slash) come to mind.

    Huh? I don’t think I meant what you think I meant. I just meant that for some reason my mind was only coming up with the opposite to what you wanted, meaning over-rated vocalists. At that moment the only underappreciated vocalists I could think of were ones that probably others on here hadn’t known about. And I linked someone who I like a lot but who isn’t well known.

    But sorry if I’m always bitter. I hope that’s not my reputation on here. That would kind of suck.

    Edit: the artist I linked has a super unique voice but I think it’s pretty cool.

    Richie Kotzen has an amazing voice. He sings on his solo stuff and with Winery Dogs.

    Nancy Wilson has incredible singing ability, although she doesn't use it very often.

    The late Ray Gillen, along with one of my faves Jake E Lee in the criminally underappreciated band Badlands:

    I'll get grief for this, but Cyndi Lauper has an incredible voice. Look past her pop/new wave hits and you'll be surprised.
