    The poll at Music Radar made me want to do this,but lets keep it to all forms of rock/metal.
    Here's mine:
    10. Bruce Dickinson
    9. Andy Franck
    8. Michael Kiske
    7. Joacim Cans
    6. Rob Halford
    5. Kai Hansen
    4. Jeff Scott Soto
    3. Mili Matijevic
    2. Matthew Barlow
    1. Ronnie James Dio

    Mine is based on nothing more than my preference for each singer's voice.If I could see a concert with the bands from each name above,it would be a dream come true.
    I know I could take away some and add others at different times in my life,but right now,thats my top 10.

    My top ten would look something like this:

    10 Klaus Meine (pre-1980)
    9. Ray Alder
    8. Robert Plant
    7. Ian Gillan (only getting better with age)
    6. Freddy Mercury
    5. Paul Rodgers
    4. Jeff Scott Soto
    3. Tony Martin
    2. Geoff Tate
    1. Ronnie James Dio

    A big gap between #1 and the rest; you could reorder #2 through #9 though.

    10. Robert Lowe
    9. Tim Owens
    8. Bruce Dickinson
    7. Ronnie James Dio
    6. Michael Kiske
    5. Midnight
    4. Andi Deris
    3. Bon Scott
    2. Axl Rose
    1. Rob Halford

    These pretty much are my favorites. If I did a list who I think the best singers are it would be a very different list, though Halford would still be on top and most of the singers on the list itself would be the same, just a different order.

    if the list was allowed to be just a little longer than 10, Tony would have definitely been on mine.
