Glen May of Tyrant:



Christian Mertens of Dark Millennium:



Phillip Swanson of Hour Of 13 and Briton Rites:



Giuseppe "Ciape" Cialone of Rosae Crucis:



Vittorio Ballerio of Adramelch:

my Top 10 vocalists (right now)

Neil Turbin ANTHRAX
Rob Urbinati SACRIFICE
John Gallagher RAVEN
Dan Beehler EXCITER
Dave Mustaine MEGADETH
Paul DiAnno IRON MAIDEN
Dee Snider TWISTED SISTER
John Arch FATES WARNING
Guy Speranza RIOT
John Cyris AGENT STEEL, Pontius Prophet

also like a lot -
Ian Gillan BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE
Robin Zander CHEAP TRICK
Michael Monroe HANOI ROCKS
Brian Connolly THE SWEET
Ann Wilson HEART
Graham Bonnet RAINBOW, ALCATRAZZ
Robert Plant LED ZEPPELIN
Sean Harris DIAMOND HEAD

I do not look for any bands with high, operatic wailing, King Diamond-like, or Dickinson-type or Halford-type singing, pretty much sick of them, so I have to be in a good mood when it catches me when not expecting it.

Riptorn makes a very valid point that raw voices with character carry more of an emotional impact than ones with great technical ability. Take opera singers, for example. They have serious technical ability, but any time I've heard one attempt a rock or pop song it always sounds sterile and emotionless. It's like they're singing from the head and not the heart.

Anyway, here are a few of my favourites that haven't had a mention (or little mention) so far:

Maxim 'Agyl' Andrianov (Scald) [Russia]
Brad Delp (Boston) [USA]
Dicken (Mr. Big UK / Broken Home / solo) [UK]
Sammy Hagar (Montrose / Van Halen / solo) [USA]
Heri Joensen (Tyr / Heljareyga) [Faroe Islands]
Stevie Lange (Night / solo) [UK]
Messiah Marcolin (Mercy / Candlemass) [Sweden]
Dave Meniketti (Y&T / solo)
Derek St. Holmes (Ted Nugent / solo) [USA]
Niklas Stålvind (Wolf) [Sweden]

@canadaspaceman: And going off-topic for a second, is that a picture of your dog? A fine-looking specimen indeed!

heh, no, just a funny photo I found. But all the dogs I have owned were always part German Shephered or part Husky.
My father and grandfather owned German Shepherds on their farm. My brother owned one when I was born.
My father's friends, and even my friends when I went to elementary school usually owned them in the neighborhood I grew up in.
To me they just look the coolest.

If I get a dog again in the future and it wasn't that type, then my next pick would be a short-haired dog , Doberman Pinscher, or a Bullmastiff.
I have seen them be just as smart and loyal and good/friendly, including with small children of families.
