Cliff Richard only plays it safe in his (limited) vocal range? :nfi:

Guess so. But i reckon >50 years career means something.

George Michael as my 5th. He could do a bit of Freddie Mercury.  A bit - when he went outside his safe zone.

But Freddie's was a voice sent from heaven.

To pick a "greatest of all" means you must sort of relate to the music.I always thought that Axl Rose has/had an incredible voice (never mind the person)

The Ladies

1 Emmylou Harris
2 Lucinda Williams
3 Marianne Faithfull

The Guys

1 Johnny Cash (not one syllable he ever sung was untrue)

Will think about this more but in the interim I feel obliged to add Adele - saw her live in the UK and the power and control is unbelievable. Exponentially better live than on CD.
