*I am aware that we this list already, but it's heavily flawed, and the editor has long since vanished.

Also, I figure since most of our old threads for individual singers got deleted, then we shouldn't mind adding a few more here and there.

Now if it's okay for us to do this, what criteria should we settle on?

I'd say Influence, Musical Impact and Skill.

First we should see if anyone else is even interested. Vocalists forum has been a ghost town lately...

I am kinda interested, but I would say that musical impact is fairly silly term here, we should use something like "acclam for their vocals" instead of it. Also we could use old list and vocalists list from main site for suggestions to fill the list.

Rough draft for top ten:

1. Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin)
2. Roger Daltrey (The Who)
3. Ian Gillan (Deep Purple)
4. Rob Halford (Judas Priest)
5. Freddie Mercury (Queen)
6. Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden)
7. Ronnie James Dio (Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio)
8. Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave)
9. Axl Rose (Guns N Roses)
10. Brad Delp (Boston)

Not bad, but Delp in the top 10? Why?

I'd say Tyler, Vedder, Coverdale, Tate, Rodgers and Patton deserve more.

That top 3 of Plant/Daltrey/Gillan should be set in stone for all time. I cant see it changing.

Because he is that good, that's why.

Tim's top 10 looks really good to me. I don't know if I would change anything at all.

What about Kiske though?
