    Both great calls. Chino's work on the latest Deftones album is just jaw-dropping.

    I'd add Mikael Akerfeldt and Mike Patton to the list.

  • Myles Kennedy - One of the biggest ranges for a guy in the industry. Used to be in a band out of Spokane called the Mayfield Four, then joined Creed sans Scott Stap and formed Alter Bridge and has worked a bunch with Slash, does some great G&R stuff with him.

  • Male: Josh Groban.
    Female: Sarah Brightman.

    Sarah - best known for Phantom of the Opera:


    (P.S. Steve Harley is shit compared to Michael Crawford as the Phantom)

    Also made some great music on her own:


    Josh doing 'Brave'


    Both together, though Sarah is a bit past her prime - still got an amazing voice though.

    Pre-cracked out Whitney was pretty awesome...but, this kid does an awesome job with it too, and he doesn't even speak English.
    0:50 for the start of the song.
    2:55 for the "oh damn" part.

    This lady has lots of voice but hasn't the "feeling" behind it. Its just music by rote.

    Me, I'd take the ones below with a tip of the hat to Celene Dion

    Barbara Streisand

    Ann Wilson

    Neal Diamond in the earlier years

    best mens voice ever,,,Mario Lanza

  • Totally forgot about Boxcar Willie.

    Good call, Donk. Early Boxcar was amazing. Then the fame started going to his head and the song writing got repetitious and lazy. His dark period when he was hooked on trannies and ludes had some good songs, but not an 8 track worth, know what I'm sayin.

    Still, for my money the best hobo musician since Anne Murray.

    Last I heard they were done for a while, and that he wants to finish his solo album he has been trying to get out there for years. I think he would have killed it with Zepplin had that whole thing come to fruition.... sigh.
