  2. Paul
  3. Bruce Springsteen
  4. Neil Young
  5. George
  6. Mike Love
  7. Justin Beiber (JUST KIDDING). Bono.
  8. Burton Cummings

Mary Hopkins

Sarah Bareilles

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

As for the Beatles: John (especially his early stuff when he rocked) Paul (I like his ballad voice) & George (lots of emotion)

Other singers: (Male) Robert Plant, Lou Gramm, Paul Rogers, Gregg Allman, Jim Morrison, John Kay, Tom Johnston & Chuck Negron

Other Singers: (Female) Linda Ronstadt, Barbara Streisand, Janis Joplin, Nancy Wilson &  Chrissie Hynde 

{These are just a few}

The further one travels, the less one knows

Personally, I can't stand Robert Plant's voice. Seriously, I can't. Love the abilities of them, but his voice almost ruins Led Zeppelin to me. Page is a great guitarist, Bonham was awesome as hell on drums, but Plant just failed.

The following people thank mr. Sun king coming together for this post:

Uhh well I hope you're kidding about the second one because I was kidding about that one, probably.

I'm kind of kidding about both. I can't stand Rebeca Black, and I like Billy Joel's song "Piano Man", but that's it.

Without counting the Beatles?

 

I love these 4 ladies : Janis Joplin, Barbra Streisand, Julie Andrews. and Edith Piaf.

 

I love these men : Freddie Mercury, Bono, Richard Page from Mr. Mister, Steve Perry from Journey (just listen to Open Arms), Miguel Bose, and the 3 Tenores, Carreras Pavarotti and Domingo.

 

I also like Annie Lennox, Nat King Cole, and some others that honestly I don't remember. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Of course, JPG&R

aand

Paul Simon, Jim Morrison, Freddie Mercury, Thom Yorke, Florence Welch, Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Chris Martin, Bono, Jack Johnson...I'm sure I'll think of more later. I don't listen to many female vocalists, I just realized.

And of course I love me some Mick Jagger.

George

John

Paul

Ringo

Eric Burdon (I love his deep scratchy voice on "The House of the Rising Sun" glad I got to see him preform that live.)

Bruce Springsteen (Another awesome person to see in concert.)

Frank Sinatra

Dean Martin

Bono

George Michael (Yes you can make fun of me for that one.)

Colin Blunstone (From The Zombies)

Mike Love (Once again really cool to see in concert)

Jim Yester (The Association "Along Comes Mary")

Terry Kirkman and Russ Giguere (Both singing on "Cherish")

Julie Andrews

Barbra Streisand

Michael Buble

Kurt Cobin

Elton John

Billy Joel (Love love love "We Didn't Start the Fire" mainly because I'm a history nerd. But my parents were almost able to see both him and Elton John live. But then my dad had a nursing class so they couldn't go. I told them I'd take the tickets and get someone to drive me down there, but that didn't convince them.)

Jim Morrison

 

Wow, that's a lot more artists than I thought it would be.

No mention of Ray Charles yet? Say it ain't so.
If I could sing like anyone it would be Dr. John, that raspy Cajun voice could not be cooler.
Others, Otis Redding, I like Art's harmonies but when he sings lead I'm not crazy about it.
Billie Holiday, James Taylor, Bob Marley, James Brown, Nat King Cole, Tom Jones, Freddie.
I agree, I can't stand Robert Plant, but the rest of the group isn't bad. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Marvin Gaye's is the ultimate voice.

For love-making anyway.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.
