One thing i really like about prog/power bands are the ballads and the vocalists. What are any of your favourites? mine are:

Symphony x (russell allen)
Kamelot (Roy Kahn)
Stride (Gary ???)
Beyond Twilight (all of them) especially bjorn jannsson
Circus Maximus (???)
Claudio Sanchez from Coheed and Cambria and The Prizefighter Inferno
Cedric Bixler-Zavala (sp?) from The Mars Volta

Awesome prog vocalists. And, with the new musical direction that they've taken (especially with Knights of Cydonia) you could also say Matt Bellamy from Muse.

The only advantage of home-schooling is that it gives you good reason to commit suicide.

Hit this once or twice, and you'll be twice as nice.

He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

I'm quite a fan of the singer from Age of Nemesis. Geddy Lee and James Labrie are cool, too. And I like Portnoy's vocals quite a bit.
Jorn Lande and Chris Logan FTW

Pro tip, kids - girls are NOT impressed by your blood.
Well I really like Rhapsody of Fire. Fabio Lione is a great vocalist. Luca Turilli (their guitarist and main songwriter) considers them "film score metal." They have a really epic thematical genre. Quite power metal-ish.
im gonna piss off the regs by saying M. Shadows
Wisest is she who knows she does not know.
^Prepare for total flammage........

The Russel dude from Symphony X....... and the vocalist on Yngwie's Facing The Animal.....

Labrie is to thin sounding IMO.......
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

What about the guy from stratovarious? I love his voice.

Keep it real man.
I agree Peter Gabriel is one of the best, and that one guys voice, I think, is too annoying to listen to.
I like many vocalists, but Jorn Lande is by far my favorite. Although he seems to be focussing on "new" Classic Rock lately.

Everytime I go into the guitar shop and ask for a G-String the shopkeeper always makes that TERRIBLE joke about it not being an underwear shop

So next time I go in I'm gonna ask for a thong
