    As usual, in no particular order...

    Don Henley
    Paul Rodgers
    Tommy Shaw
    Brad Delp
    Robert Plant

    Ann Wilson
    Freddie Mercury
    Robert Plant
    Sebastian Bach
    David Coverdale

    Voted on vocal ability and not as a frontman, though there would be some overlap if I were to list those.

    Much harder for me because I don't know as many names. I'll toss out
    Burton Cummings (first guy to make me wish I was a singer)
    Robert Plant
    Freddie Mercury
    the Heart ladies (not sure which Wilson to credit for what)
    Janis Joplin

    I love Bowie's voice and how he uses it, but never really considered him rock & roll - maybe just because I liked him beyond whatever genre he might have been tagged with at the moment.

    I don't know who else, I don't usually listen to vocals, but he's always been one of my favourite vocalists.
    Rush are my favourite Rock'n'roll band, so I'd probably have to add Geddy Lee
    Also the guys in Golden Earring and New Model Army.
    Ann sung lead vocals on 95% of the songs. I always had a crush on Nancy because musician, but in hindsight, Ann was a fantastic vocalist. I even tried to interview her (Nancy) at the impressionable, pheromone-laden age of 16. I have never heard anything louder than the audience in Capital Center in Landover, MD when I saw them. Nothing. So you'd probably be not too surprised to find out that I did not land said interview. They were at their absolute peak. I think it was the Dog & Butterfly tour.

    Freddy Mercury. I could list 4 other of my favorite rock singers but they all sound like they're taking a **** compared to Freddie Mercury.

    He hasn't got the history of a lot of the people mentioned, but Ian Thornley has a strong voice well suited to rock.

    Yeah, I wanted to put in Myles, and Ann, and Coverdale, and Perry, but like the guitarist thread, you only get 5. Any one of the five I did mention could be replaced by these, but what ya gonna do?

    But not in real life, not no way, not no how. That's one of my favourite things about music (and real life, for that matter) -- you don't really have to choose.
