My all time favourite male vocalist is Jonathan Davis from Korn, that guy can really belt it out and I just love the way his voice sounds.

Other favorites would have to be" Maynard James Keenan, Elvis, Johnny Cash (depending on if you lable him country or rock), and Kurt Cobain. I'd also have to give an honourable mention to Jim Morrison.

Ahoy, new guy here, from France, sad to see Huet gone of course, haaa... just as I was following the NHL a bit more than I ever did :( through the Habs of course :(

But that's for another topic.

Anyway, most of you are Canadians, and I'm a bit surprised nobody cited Devin Townsend, sure he's from Vancouver, not Montreal, but still, he's a pretty good vocalist.

The track Death of Music on the Ocean Machine album is a stellar example of that.

Or maybe he's really not that famous, as he's the kind of artist who never liked the music biz', and put his bands on indefinite hiatus last year when they were about to be turned into musical products.

I'll add Mike Patton, but he's already been cited, and Matthew Bellamy from Muse (funny to see in an older post that like 1 or 2 years ago he wasn't well known in Canada, they're pretty big here in Europe, and have been for about 7 years).

I don't know how good Townsend is, he can hit a note and everything, but technically I don't consider him that great. I think part of the appeal of his music is the rawness of the vocals. I do see how you could find him an appealing vocalist, although from a technical standpoint he's not great from what I've heard. As for his music overall, I like some of it, but some of it is really lacking.

jon davis is absolutely amazing. I only stopped listening to korn because they went a bit too commercial for my tastes, but the old freak on a leash days were amazing, they really impacted my life

My top 2 are Robert Plant (Zeppelin) and Steve Perry (Journey).

Plant it's tough to say, he can hit the high notes, but he does so in a really unconventional fashion that sounds like he's straining or something

Steve Perry is a good choice, he has a really clear voice and sings very well, particularly for balads. That also reminds me of another singer (not sure where this association came from), but Rik Emmett (Triumph) has a great range.
