...my vote goes to dylan. seriously. the man brings incredible character to a lyric, and a melody.

another under-appreciated singer is mick jagger, and for the same reasons.

I always felt that James Dewar ex Stone the Croes bassist and bassist and vocalist for Robin Trower had one of the most bluesy soulfull voices in rock music and it seems only since his passing a number of years ago has been finally recognized for the wonderful singer that he was.
I also think that original vocalist for Deep Purple and Captain Beyonds frontman Rod Evans was underated and it showed up big time in Captain Beyond, sadly he has become a recluse and has not replied to many requests to reform the group.

They fit into my list of great singers with bad voices. Others being:

Neil Young (whiney)
Tom Waits (the baddest of the bad)
Randy Newman (yodelly)
Joe Cocker (Captain, we're breakin' up!)
Johnny Cash (wobbley)

I give them all 100% on delivery.

ME! :banana:

Neil Young (whiney)
Tom Waits (the baddest of the bad)
Randy Newman (yodelly)
Joe Cocker (Captain, we're breakin' up!)
Johnny Cash (wobbley)

I give them all 100% on delivery.
Neil Young (Kermit the Frog)
Tom Waits (Cookie Monster)
Randy Newman (Ernie... AND Bert)
Joe Cocker (Barney Gumble)
Johnny Cash (hmmm... nope, no-one else sounds like that)

I would add John Hiatt to the above list. Great character in his voice.
