is really really good.

03. Jim Morrison
04. Peter Hammill
05. Syd Barrett

I think you'll be hard pressed getting much consensus on what
qualifies as being a great singer..?

Eddie Vedder? Thom Yorke? Jeff Buckley?

To turn this into something more interesting than another "my
favourites" list which could degenerate into another playground name-
calling execise, I think there is an interesting point to be discussed
re the great singers of rock.

Number 1 in Raja's list is a front-man singer whose job was just to
sing.
Number 2, Elvis, would sometimes have a guitar slubg round his neck
(and would sometimes play it).
And so on.

Some of rocks greatest singers have been front-men who just sang,
others have also contributed instrumental skills, e.g.
John Lennon always had a guitar strapped on when he performed (except
when he played keyboards)
Macca has bass or guitar or piano.
There are plenty of examples of drummers singing but I don't know of
one who would be called great.
Is there a truly great *singer* who also played *lead guitar*?
Is there a truly great singer who played any other instrument
regularly? (Ray Thomas - I can't believe he gets into a top ten! -
played flute sometimes - and that immediately brings Ian Anderson to
mind, a singer I would regard as great but that may not be a universal
opinion).
I recently saw Joe Brown who played ukulele, mandolin & fiddle as well
as guitar but it's stretching things to call him one of the greats
(though IMHO he's more right to a place in the list than Ray Thomas or
Justin Hayward).
I've seen Van Morrison and he still occasionally plays sax (as Bowie
used to). Thay may have more claim to be on the list but aren't
regularly seen with their instruments.

BTW, no females on the list? Are there none worthy of inclusion? No
Janis or Grace or Suzi?

I think it depends on your definition of "great". Guitarists who sang
very well, in my opinion, Rory Gallagher, Rick Derringer, John
Fogerty, Eric Clapton, Brian Setzer, George Harrison, cant think of
any girls... none of these people may be "great" singers, altho I
think they are.. Elton John is a "great" singer to me, too, and he
plays excellent piano. Todd Rundgren sings very well and plays just
about anything very well. So does Prince. Freddie Mercury sang great
and played some really good piano.

To me, thats the sort of highest eschelon of musical performing
ability, to be a really good singer and lead player. Few achieve it.

One could argue about whether they're "great" or not, but Hendrix has
already been mentioned, and Hayward, who I consider pretty good, is
already on Raja's list.

George Harrison has (to me) some endearing vocal qualities but I suppose
he doesn't qualify because he wasn't a primary singer in the Beatles.
