    While Chris Cornell has been justly mentioned here, another in the same vein who had an incredible rock voice was Layne Staley. I can't think of another as good as either of them in that genre, and both are sadly missed.

    I couldn't agree more...he was amazing...it's truly a shame to lose so many talented artist from that era. :( Eddie Vedder is really the last major frontman of that era. Sad...

    Has anyone mentioned Doung Pinnick of King's X fame? He blew me away the first time I heard "Over My Head".

    Yeah, and those guys, much like Tool, are not just mindless thrashing and screaming all the time at all...

    Great band, great song.

    I remember bringing Gretchen Goes to Hollywood home. Out of the Silent Planet was playing and my wife walked into the room and said, “Are those guys singing out of tune on purpose?”

    The Good:
    Stumbled across this...I love isolated vocal tracks...to me, isolated vocals expose the raw talent (or lack there of) better than just about anything else..



    The Bad:
    In their defense...everybody has a bad day sometimes...but when ya do...as long as you look good, they wont even notice. So there is that....
