3# is a good enough spot for him, Plant is the true master of hard rock vocals.

He should drop a good amount, he really isnt a hard rock vocalist , though he's had good enough influence on hard rockers like Dickinson and power metallers like hansi......but many who deserve it more...

we need to move one list at a time....new forum, new ways....makes it more efficiennt i reckon....

Well if this is strictly "hard rock," then drop Freddie into the top 25/30.

this is something we need to put our heads together for.....if we go by influence, someone like Macca could also get a spot here , cause he's certainly been an influence on hard rock , plus with songs like helter skelter , cant completely right him off.....so it depends on how much of queen is 'hard rock' ...... i personally see very few songs to be honest...their sound and delivery was way too polished to be hard rock, even on their harder numbers.....Stone Cold Crazy and Gimme the prize pop up to mind , but even stone cold crazy , the vocals are so delicate and feminine , hardly gives off as hard rock.....

Queen's hard rock songs that come to mind:

Stone Cold Crazy
Gimme the Prize
Hitman
Hammer to Fall
It's Late
Keep Yourself Alive
I'm In Love With My Car
I Want it All
Tie Your Mother Down
White Man

Can't really think of much else. I can't see Freddie getting a particularly high placement here, 25-30 sounds good.

agreed .....

also, a division of labor around here might also make lists go faster.....Curio seems more llike a hard rock dude , so maybe he can be put in charge here ?? if he can control his bias for Rose that is :lol:

i hate the new laughter emoticon, the one before was so much cooler....

gotta love the clashwho emot though...priceless
