Rock vocalists huh....?

How about:

Ian Asbury from The Cult.

Lemmy

And I'd have to vote for James Hetfield as well. He can carry a tune, and growl. Got to love that.

Ya, can't believe I didn't list him.

Brian Johnson is good and all, but AC/DC was at it's finest with Bon Scott. No doubt about it.

I also would add Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat (I am glad there are some ex-punks like me here) and Don Henley.  Bon Scott too.  Henry Rollins, all the Black Flag stuff up to his first three solo albums (after that he was a sell out).  Any votes for Wattie Buchan?

Ya, Ian MacKaye was great.

Didn't list any punk/hardcore singers since I figured that was a whole other genre (even though that's mostly what I listen to). Plus, almost too many to list.

Wattie Buchan? I'm assuming you mean from The Exploited? I think there are MUCH better choices than him.

OT, is there anyone here who either didn't see Wattie get his ass kicked, or know somebody who kicked his ass while touring here? I think that's why they stopped.
