perhaps for R&B standards he's above most, but on a scale of best male vocalist i dont think he would rank.

I worship at the altar of Rowan London's voice. If God had a voice, it would be his, blasphemy or not.

he's up there with the great ones...........u probably like sinatra's deep and clear voice but ask any singer and they would tell you that perfecting a "blue" note is one of the hardest thing.

curling your voice to reach two notes simultaneosly is not easy.

any way who is your favorite singer????

lots of great male vocalists, but I would have to vote for

Josh Groban for pure quality and range.

In rock, Freddie Mercury is stunning.

Quality is in the ear of the beholder, as far as I'm concerned. My top 5 favorite male vocalists are...


1. Raul Malo - Voice of the now defunct country band 'The Mavericks'. He's often been compared to Roy Orbison.

2. Roy Orbison - Explained by the fact that my favorite male singer is often compared to 'ol Roy.

3. John Cowan - Soulful voice of 70's newgrass pioneers 'The New Grass Revival'

4. Freddie Mercury - Over the top is just enough.

5. Matthew Bellamy/Tom Yorke - Tied for fifth, I guess. I like them both equally.

Cat Stevens has a nice voice, but it's a little too syrupy for my taste; that said "Sad Lisa" and "The Wind" take some beating, so somewhere between writing the songs and singing them Cat didn't do too badly. As for why he was refused entry to the U. S., I didn't think that anyone knew for sure, but it was certainly a bad mistake by U. S. immigration.

Jeff Buckley, yes. Freddy Mercury, yes. Nick Drake, Scott Walker, Rufus Wainwright, Robert Plant, Prince? It's so difficult to pick just one when the material that they sing is often so disparate.

I'd be tempted, though, to say Tim Buckley. His material wasn't particularly good (IMHO) but his voice always made it sound glorious.
