Right now I am stuck on 'Rooster' by 'Alice In Chains' sung by Layne Staley who is most likely also the lyricist.

I look at him and I can not believe that such deep soulful expressive vocals are his

He looks like a punk kid too me with limited experience which is some what true, but what a voice. No offense met to any look alikes. Doesnt

silverface,

I just listened to Jonny. He is real good.


To me, Layne takes it another level.


I remember seeing the short bit of live Alice in Chains in a bar in the movie 'Singles'. I was intimidated. I literally thought that if I was there I would be scared, or at least uncomfortable, and I do not scare easily.

He seemed maniacal.


I guess he was too.

My favourite Blues vocalist, sadly no longer with us...was R.L. Burnside. That there is DEEP blues! Check out his First Recordings CD on Fat Possum.

Freddie King on "Goin' Down". That's the song that started the blues rock ball rolling.

That guy from The Stereophonics singing "Maybe Tomorrow" is pretty spellbinding.

Let's not forget the "Tall Cool One"....
I saw Led Zep in Chicago on thier first US tour. The PA system went down but Plant's voice still cut through... awesome

I don't know about powerful, but there ain't too many more expressive than the late great James Dewar, of the Robin Trower Band.

Doyle Bramhall Jr. Check out the album Archangels (Archangels). Too bad they only made one rekkid. Charlie Sexton sings on it too--and he's pretty good.

Gary Moore. Awesome vocal talent. Awesome. He could pay the bills just by singing...but he likes to strum a guitar too =o)

Rod Stewart (in his prime) was at the top of the heap for a few years. Great singer/songwriter.

Lonnie Mack is a monster.

Bob Seger is another.

And then there's Ray White from Zappa's bands.

You gotta check out Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise.

But Ray Charles was THE man. Couldn't nobody touch him.

Remember back when the "experts" said Rod Stewart`s voice would never last for the long run? (ha)

I like the following singers best.
Robert Plant
Paul Rogers
Jack White

What they all have in common is huge balls.
The rest is god given tallent.

Best blues singer has to be Muddy Waters though...

I really think you all should check out Anthony Gomes. Start with his cd Unity. As a DJ for many years doing a blues show I have heard my share, but this dude just floored me, period. The entire album is stellar and both playing and vocals are above anything I have heard in many years. I guess that is what comes from being a buddy of the late Jeff Healey.
