My top 20 vocalists of all time

“You’re a singer – who’s your favourite then?”… has to be one of the most common questions I get asked at gigs. The hard thing is, I very rarely have an answer ready – it’s an impossible question! It depends on the genre, on whether we’re rating singing ability as opposed to performance, and bunch of other things.

I decided to write a list of my favourite singers – going purely on vocals, not songwriting, or skill as a performer.

Here, in no particular order, is a list of my favourite 20 vocalists of all time.

1. Freddie Mercury

2. Dave Grohl

3. Chris Cornell

4. Frank Sinatra

5. Christina Aguilera

6. Louis Armstrong
