    I can't believe you put lady gaga in the same list as the legendary Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson. I haven't heard any of Tose's work but I like all the other singers except for Lady gaga - she is a zero talent freak show IMO. My favorite is easily Freddie Mercury and, not on the list, Robert Plant.

    Yes. I was lucky enough to see Cummings solo on a swing through Canada, and he was all I remembered him to be from Canada's greatest group. What a voice!

    Canada foisted Neil Young on us, so let's call it a wash. :devil:

    Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Bert Jansch, Warren Haynes...

    If I'm limited to the list then Freddie Mercury.

    Take away the theatrics and Lady Gaga is dead-in-the-water boring NOT a singer.

    Yep. Among the listed, Freddie is the king. Lots of folks have heard Bohemian Rhapsody or other hits, but there are so many "keepers" in Queen's catalog... I am more a fan of Brian May, but that's just me.

    I find girl singers to be better

    Diana Krall

    and Meatloaf

    so many great singers out there, these are the top ones. I don't listen to Meatloaf or Diana Krall but both are very good singers imo.

    oh and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam)
