    But the band is big...

    Examples:

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Who told Anthony Keidis or whatever his name is he could sing? He's awful! But I like the Peppers anyway.

    Coldplay. I'm OK with Coldplay. But Chris Martin strains as a singer, and he's nasally.

    Guns 'N Roses. Great tunes, great band. But I think Axl counts more as a... uh... "vocal stylist" than a singer, no?

    Others?

    Bob Dylan. His music reminds me that boy band and pop stars weren't invented in the 80s. Also, Cat Stephens. I think Mark Gormely writes better songs.

    You don't think Cat Stevens is a good singer?:cuckoo:

    Freddie Dennis, a friend of mine, was the lead singer for the Kingsmen(Louis Louis). Some think he can't sing..I think he kicks ass.

    Yes, Cat Stephens sucks. A studio can make a victim of throat cancer sound like Aretha Franklin but that guy STILL can't sing. There are only so many overdubs and effects that one can add.

    I don't know ... He sings from the heart .. perhaps that is what I hear.

    George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher sings from the heart too. That doesn't make him a good singer.
