Paul wasn't just a good screamer; he is one. To only consider his Beatles era is to do him a huge disservice. If anything, his vocal style, screams included, have become far more diverse after the Fabs broke up. It's no longer the carefully controlled 'aaaaaaah-whooooo' screams (which still crack me up whenever I hear them because they sound like he's having so much fun doing them), or the 'Oh! Darling' roars, we get a whole new array of screams, cries, yelps, and whatnot. And they're not always that controlled anymore either; it's like he feels it's okay to just let 'em rip, which is wonderful to hear. So, to me, Paul is the best screaming vocalist, if only for the sheer variety in his screams, and because he's still screaming with the best of them at 73! Now that's impressive.

I couldn't possibly decide on anyone in particular because there are sooo many but Paul is a major possibility. Listen to the caterpauling (don't tell SG that I nicked her word) in Oh Woman Oh Why for a great example.

Another obvious one is Jon Bon Jovi.

I'm surprised nobody's thought to mention Little Richard, without whom...

a-hard-days-night-john-7 How dare you?! 

Just kidding, when I coin a phrase or word I want people to use it. It pleases me that you've adopted my term ahdn_george_06 

And yes, Little Richard is certainly a contestant.

Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish.
