I'm biased because The Who are my favorite band, but I've always loved Roger Daltrey's voice.
Richard Manuel. When he, Levon Helm and Rick Danko sang together, they created the greatest vocal sound in the history of rock and roll and Richard was(according to Levon) The Band's lead singer.
Paul Weller of the Jam and Style Council has a helluva voice .
A shoutout to Motown/R & B is in order
Agreed, Delp was one of a kind to be sure. This guy does an admirable job, though. Check out his other videos... guy is a cover machine.
My top three would be Mercury, Plant, and Burdon; not only were they great vocalists, but also very unique.
Some of my other favorite vocalists:
Andrew Bell - Erasure
Siouxsie Sioux - Siouxsie and the Banshees
John Lydon - The Sex Pistols and Public Image, Ltd.
Paul Banks - Interpol
Mark Burgess - The Chameleons
Peter Murphy - Bauhaus
Paul Heaton - The Housemartins
Tom Smith - The Editors
Morrissey - The Smiths
This song is the first of four videos I'll be posting as fulfillment of pledge rewards for donors who contributed to funding my first CD of original music through my Kickstarter pledge drive in the spring of 2011. This song was requested by YouTube user seattlebeezer (who also happens to be my brother!). Thanks again for your generous pledge, bro! He gave me several songs to choose from, but I chose this one because, well, it's incredibly awesome. Jeff and I did our best to capture (both in the audio and video) the pure joy and love of music so evident in the performance of the original by Boston, particularly in Brad Delp's vocals. So forgive our silliness, as we celebrate this legendary song through our humble acoustic rendition.
R.E.M. is tough to qualify as a rock band, but Michael Stipe is a phenomenal singer. Totally unique voice and style. Thom Yorke still sounds a lot like early-era Stipe.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
I have been trying to think of an alternative, but can't do it. Freddie for me. Was thinking maybe Bowie, but Freddie had that extra level that nobody else has.

Garbage perform their US breakthrough hit
Well except for the Home Depot worker they have singing for them now.
In this FOX News @ Ten Feature Story, Derek James introduces you to the Charlotte man who is the new lead singer of the legendary rock band Boston.
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
I'm a little troubled that as far as I can see Chris Cornell hasn't entered the discussion yet. Best is a topic that I see no point in trying to participate or argue endlessly about. But I definitely have favorites:
Layne Staley (His performance on Facelift is unbelievable)
EDIT: Okay, so I pared back on "cool" voices since there's another thread for those, and switched to the "greatest" among my favorites.

Funny, I was thinking all along that Cornell was getting no love and that I would post his name just to get it out there, and then I get to the last post and you've done it. I wouldn't say he's the best, but he's in the team picture.
I'm going with Mercury.
I love the way Liam enunciates. You probably do too given your choice of songs. Acquiesce shows why the brothers need to get back together. The vocal tradeoffs are great.
I don't think you can really argue against Freddie. Range, Voice, Control, Emotion- he had it all.
Concur. Was always an Axl Rose fan during his prime. Unique sound must have been pretty tough on the vocal chords.

Good pick. Pretty underrated guy with an undeniable/unique sound.
I was surprised it took so long to mention Cornell, too. He's incredible on "Say Hello 2 Heaven."
Gilmour is a bad ass. His voice on "Time" and "Wish You Were Here" is so good it could make you cry.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
I accidentally deleted him off of my list. Probably my favorite guitarist ever, too. Every note he plays is so damn purposeful.
Definitely agree.......didn't need enhancement on his records. He may have sounded better live than on his records in many instances.
Too bad his career wasn't managed better. The infamous "Colonel Parker" was a joke.
Layne Staley and its not close.
And for pure uniqueness, Geddy Lee."
Roger Daltry in the 1970's was excellent. Roger Daltry before 1969 ? I would say he was definitely a work in progress.

A soul singer thread would be five times longer than this thread.lol
Maybe we should start one.
Rod Stewart is also pretty good.
He would be my choice as well.
