It's time for a showdown! One of possibly many showdowns. This is something that I've been thinking about for awhile now. Who is the greatest rock vocalist of all time? Notice I'm saying vocalist, not front man or lead singer. I want to focus on the vocals here. You're probably thinking... "But you only have Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant. Where are the other options?!" That's coming. I just wanted to float this one out there to see what kind of reaction I get. I thinking about doing a full on tournament.

Something I want to do with this idea is also post isolated vocals from the contestants. That was you can get a real idea for their vocal abilities. Here are a couple isolated vocals from our contestants. I tried to choose songs that don't have heavy effects on the vocals. That's why Stairway to Heaven was out.

Now that you've hopefully listened to both isolated vocals, you can go ahead an vote below. Also, here is a preliminary list of the vocalists I want to include in a possible tournament. If I am missing anyone, please let me know. You can reach out to me on the Buzz Adams Morning Show Facebook page or email: brandon@buzzadamsshow.com
