My opinion of a good singer is someone whose voice matches the music. Obviously helps if they are in tune too

So, referring to the title, who do you think?

I'll go with Mark Knopfler.

Anthony Kiedis. I wouldn't say that he is an amazing singer but his singing suits RHCP very well.

Very true.

Also Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta. I couldn't imagine anybody with a voice more perfect for their sound, although I have to say some of his recent live performances have sounded pretty ugly.

Tarja from Nightwish as proved by Annette singing the old songs.
Much like Paul Rodgers singing Queen songs, just isn't as good as Freddie Mercury

That worked so well though because Paul Rodgers is NOTHING like Freddie Mercury. Totally different styles. It's when bands work with singers similar to their previous ones it usually falls flat.

And TS, I disagree about Mark Knopfler. Amazing guitarist but as soon as he starts talking, sorry singing, I zone out. I wish he'd stick to the guitar and let someone with a better voice sing. Doesn't have to be flashy or anything, but someone with a subtle and interesting voice... not Knopfler's monotone one.

You won't believe how jealous I am. I had a chance to see him in Bournemouth in May but I didn't have any money I will see him live.

I didn't say i didn't like the Return of the Champions stuff with Paul Rodgers, it was really good. It just wasn't as good as Freddie Mercury in my opinion

*Edit: I totally agree about when singers are replaced with similar singers that it usually is a lot worse

Well of course, nobody is as good as Freddie Mercury.

But I saw Q+PR live at Wembley Arena in 2008 and it was the best damn gig I have ever seen. Simply mindblowing.

Headbang until your head becomes detached from the rest of your body, then throw it into the crowd while you play a killer guitar solo. Trust me, it would be totally br00tal.
