    No particular order.....

    Ray Charles and yes even before the movie "Ray" came out.

    Al Green - Let's stay together.

    James Hetfield, what can I say I'm a metalhead.

    Greg Allman, Whipping Post, need I say more?

    Brent Smith of Shinedown. If you haven't heard him/them check out this link of a live performance. In this age of studio produced music it's great to hear an actual band that can play and sing well live.

    Lol. I thought this thread was imminent...

    Mine are:

    Chad Kroeger (of Nickelback)
    Matt Monroe (Sadly under-rated but a real legend)
    Freddy Mercury (Although the rest of Queen deserve equal praise)
    Elton John (Loved his voice since I first watched the Lion King)
    Chris Cornell (In my range so I can sing along :biggrin1:)

    (If i had another vote it would go to Take That [post 2005] I like their new stuff alot, but I hate the old...)

    ...and in 5th place I leave a blank, since there are too many to list and I'd feel wrong honoring only one of them.

    I always like Journey for there singer Steve Perry, I liked Ronnie James Dio and Don Dokken, Even though he has a lousy voice Ozzy Ozborn for his excellant Rock genre, and maybe Elton John.

    Luther Vandross - A House is Not A Home
    Stevie Wonder - Overjoyed
    Ray Charles - Georgia on my Mind
    Marvin Gaye - Got to Give It Up
    Michael Jackson - Remember the Time (so man others too)

    These are my favorite guys that I could listen to anytime, whatever they're singing...I don't care. RIP Luther, Ray, & Marvin. You will never be forgotten!
