Gotta agree with Dewar and Rodgers, but you can't overlook Malford Milligan either, IMO.

Glenn Hughes is a killer. Not many sing better after 30 years than they did before but he keeps getting better (like Holdsworth).
And Stratovani - I am with you 100% on James Dewar. That was total soul. What a great singer/.

Here's one out of left field...Steve Winwood..

This man had my ears with albums like "Refugees of the Heart" to "Chronicles" and a lot before and in between. The song Spanish Dancer comes to mind as some of the wierder earlier solo stuff goes.

When I was in middle school (maybe fifteen years ago, hovering in at 31 until this late July and turn 32), wondering why the hell much of the popular teen music didn't mean **** to me, but this strange English man's music did something to me. Still does. And a whollatta things have changed in past years, but some of these things have come full circle as of recently.

I've been singing along to 'Dear Mr. Fantasy' and 'Low Spark of High Heeled Boys', among others off of a 20th century hits album.

Pathetic, I am, still a closet (ok, not all the time) but mostly closet/car hermetic vocalist. I generally perform as a guitarist in public. The voice box has been in use since 14 years of age, whereas the guitar came in at mid 22. Still learning on all levels though. I will eternally be a student to all music yet to be heared and/or made.. Sorry for the odd story.....

Paul Rogers voice is like silk. He's #1 on my list. I'm surprised that no one said my #2...Ann Wilson,from Heart.

Technically maybe not the best but very expressive white blues singer is Watermelon Slim. I am in awe of his acapella stuff!

"....Overall best white singer? Marty Balin in his prime. Hands down."

I might agree. I saw him with the Starship circa '75 in Lakeland, Fla and was totally knocked out. You had to see him live to understand how powerful his voice was.

I have to say Freddie King that guy was bad arse. Amazing range and he had soul for days. BB is always another one, I've always wished if I could have one voice it would be the combination of the two.

Joplin, srv, any of the kings, and jack white. As far as young guys go jack white may not have a good voice but that raw emotion in both the guitar and vocals is spellbinding. And while we are with michigan boys ty stone as well.

Anyone ever seen eric tessmer? Saw him at a festival a few years back brought a tear to my eye
