And yet, In Rock was not that big in America.

And Machine Head is still viewed as Gillan/Purple's greatest (though I dont agree).

Quadrophenia isn't The Who's biggest either. Tommy is their most popular, especially in America.

Influence: I can go either way, but I hear more rock vocalists singing like Daltrey than Gillan.

Impact: Tied. Quad was bigger initially, but In Rock got pretty big over time. Though it's not like either one was immediately hailed for it's vocal brilliance.

Total ability shown: Tied.

Other than that, I can agree with those others.

I'm not talking about which vocalist was more influential, I'm talking about which VOCAL ALBUM was more influential.

And Daltrey's influence is very comparable to Gillan's.

Gillan >>>>> Daltrey

Guys like Ted Neeley and Hansi Kürsch alone prove this.

........... Those were THE TWO BEST EXAMPLES OF STRAIGHT-UP INFLUENCE BY GILLAN.

I could just as easily throw out Eddie Vedder, Robin Zander, and hell, even Gillan himself was influenced by Daltrey.

Yes, Eddie Vedder is a good name when it comes to a guy straight influenced by Daltrey. I could keep up listing straight-up influenced vocalists by Gillan (there are tons of them, another notable name is Eric Adams) and the list has a lot more names than Daltrey's list.

And no, Gillan may have been influenced by Daltrey, but not that much to be considered straight-up influenced by him.

I think Eric Adams is copying Halford more than Gillan.

Nope, Adams himself admitted in an article that he heard Gillan sing and wanted to sound just like him. He went to every Deep Purple show he could and imitated Gillan's style as much as he could (of course his voice is so unique and great that he sounds great and fresh doing it).

Did he say so somewhere? I'm not sure about Dickinson personally, his voice was so unique back then (and led to many copycats too).

Yeah, very little of Halford in Adams's voice. The raspy screamy falsetto is the most apparent homage to Gillan there is.
