Axl Rose is #4 - that man can't sing, terrible voice IMO:

Axl is in front of John Lennon and David Bowie. Oh dear.... confused

ps Prince has no chance on this list,

- with his very little fan base these days (years)......

It says volumes that almost the entire top 20 so far are either deceased or not recording on a regular basis as of this time.

When eye go 2 a Prince concert or related event it's all heart up in the house but when eye log onto this site and the miasma of bitchiness is completely overwhelming!

Prince is a good singer, but not virtuoso in that area by any stretch. Stevie Wonder and Terrence Trent D'Arby are both better vocalists, among MANY others.

i disagree, he has an amazing vocal range. Whether you like his voice or not, he has a great falsetto and can pull of different styles convincingly.

He does all genres of music, so its not his fault. In his own way, he invented.

I love his voice, and it suits his music very well, and I agree his falsetto is probably his greatest vocal asset. But if you're talking "vocal range," classically speaking, head-voice doesn't really count. Falsetto is a technique by which you can hit notes that you can't normally. I use the term "virtuoso" sparingly. He doesn't have the vocal chops to do what the greatest rock, jazz and R&B singers can do (a very small group), including the two I mention above. If Stevie is a 10 vocally (which is hard to deny), I would place Prince around a 7.

I think to be called virtuoso, you need to be able to play or sing anything (at least within your genre, I don't expect a rock star to sing opera, although a few can). By that definition, Prince is a guitar virtuoso, yes. Vocal, not really.

i think Princes voice is greater than people give him credit for. His debut album, shows hows soulfull his voice really is.

I never heard a singer other than Prince, sing low & high like in Damn u. Falsetto.

Prince isn't the greatest singer of all time. So therefore, I'm not voting him no.1 or voting on such a stupid list. No one can honestly ever agree on a list like this.
