    I am reviving this topic because I never did get to it. And I was reminded of it earlier while watching YouTube stuff.

    1) Jonny Lang (cannot tell you what his voice does to me!!-besides, he's good to look at)
    2) Timothy B Schmit
    3) Benjamin Orr (The Cars)
    4) Jim Morrison
    5) Robert Plant
    6) David Gilmour
    7) Brian Connolly (Sweet)
    Axl Rose
    9) Chad Kroeger (Nickelback)
    10) Steve Perry

    Honorable Mention
    Geddy Lee
    Steven Piercy (Ratt)

    To be honest with you, up until recently was not real fond of Timothy's solo stuff, I know sounds really funny and I'm embarrassed to admit it. I guess all the guys I have pretty much always thought of as a group. I recently started pulling out solo stuff from all the guys and gotta say I now cannot stop playing Timothy solo stuff!!! Mad at myself for not really paying more attention to the solo efforts! Live and LEARN!!!

    Maleah--I finally got around to going on YouTube for Marc Broussard--he is amazing! Love the blues and he is definitely good at singing them! Wow. I will be hunting down his cd's shortly. How many does he have out? I will have to do some research on him. How long has he been in the business and how did I miss him? Thanks!

    Willie, just a side note again. haha If you like Chad Kroeger you should give David Cook a listen! You probably have heard him since he won American Idol.....heck.....you may not even like him. haha But his voice reminds me a lot of Chad's except I even like it better! lol

    Oh and I dropped you a PM about Marc's music

    Default Top 10 Favourite Singers

    I also think that David Cook is great. And to think that he had no intention of auditioning for American Idol, he was there to keep his brother company (or so he says)

    My top 10 - not in any particular order

    David Cook
    Elton John
    Don Henley
    Glenn Frey
    Paul McCartney
    Peter Cetera
    Barbra Streisand
    Rod Stewart
    Celine Dion
    Josh Groban

    If I don't actually have to rank them, I think I can list my top 10. My ranking has changed throughout different periods of my life, but the core singers have remained the same for the most part (an occasional substitution may take place...)

    Bruce Springsteen
    John Lyon (Southside Johnny)
    Don Henley
    Glenn Frey
    Billy Joel
    John Mellencamp
    Elvis Costello
    John Mayer
    Steve Winwood
    James Taylor

    Karla Bonoff
    Basia
    Carly Simon
    (I guess I cheated and put the women in a separate list because I couldn't narrow it down below 13 too easily.)

    Stevie Ray Vaughan
    Janis Joplin
    Buddy Guy
    Tommy Bolin
    Stevie Nicks
    Dilana Smith
    John Lennon
    Muddy Waters
    Robert Plant
    Johnny Lang (almost identical to SRV...gotta like HIM)

    With the exception of Nicks, Bolin and Lennon, all of these guys are Icons of Blues. In reality, a lot of Lennon's work was based on the Blues. Might make the argument that Dilana is not a Blues Singer, but my God, her voice ought to be wailing the Blues! But each of these artists, I feel put heart and SOUL into their vocals. Henley was a close runner for me, but I think the ones listed do edge him out to my particular ear.
