i think rock music at the moment is very short of quality singers.

my vote would go to Mike Patton. he was most commonly known from Faith No More, but has also fronted Fantomas, Mr Bungle, Tomahawl, and some other stuff.

Steve Perry from Journey, or more recently Kelly Jones from Stereophonics (a Rod Stewart for the new generation!)

u only recognised him as the new rod stewart because of the handbags and gladregs... even rod didnt do that first... its a cover of a cover :eek:
enough ranting, the 2 most brilliant rock singers (in my biased opinion) are
robert plant - led zeppelin
james hetfield - metallica

i agree with jbone about Serj Tankian of SOAD, he is a good singer and writes some interesting lyrics too - "eating seeds as a passtime activity"

not to be cranky, but this kind of isn't the forum for queries like this, and i also think it's rediculous to ask a lot of people who their favorite [whatever] is.

but high on my list is Chris Martin of Coldplay.

Bono of course. He is the singer of the best rock band in the world, and he is the best himself. The Boss is pretty good too.
