Wednesday Question: Best Singers Of All Time?
Since opening the UG 'Top 10' nominations to reader nominations and votes this year, we've had some truly stellar lists. So far you've tackled everything from the best rock guitarists to the top live recordings, but it's time to pay tribute to the people who front it all: the singers. This week's Wednesday question is: Who are the best singers of all time? Since this is UG, we expect a pretty rockin' set of nominations, but you don't have to stick to rock and metal genres if the singer deserves it. That's not to say Pavarotti would be suitable, but it would be great to see a nod towards other genres in the comments. It's fine to nominate people who scream as well as sing, of course. Don't forget to nominate female singers too too - there might be fewer women in the rock world, but there are plenty who deserve your attention in this poll. Place your nominations in the comments, and remember to upvote others that you agree with. We'll stack up the results and compile them in a post on Friday.
