My Top 5 Lead Singers

The 90's were my generation, and Britpop was my genre, so a list like this will obviously be influenced by such a period and as the initial introduction to this blog referred, it's not trying to be cool, it's how I feel and in this case the way the singers vocal moves me.
Although I didn't mean to order them in any particular way, I've really dillema'd over who to put up first, maybe it's a compilation tape disorder? (see Hi-Fidelity.)
Don't expect any great decomposition of what these vocalists do especially, they're simply great to listen to, in my opinion.

1. Steve Marriot (Small Faces, Humble Pie)
I first got introduced to Marriot's voice via my fascination with the Beatles and the 60's and for a short while The Small Faces replaced the Liverpudlians as my default setting.

2.Kelly Jones (Stereophonics)
Quite simply, for me, the greatest rock voice for generations!

3.Liam Gallagher (Oasis, Beady Eye)
Towards the end of Oasis, I thought there could have been an end to Liam's great deliveries but with his new ensemble, some of the original fire seems to have returned.

4. Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)
An even better singer who's been a drummer than Phil Collins, though probably, unbelievably, not as rich?

5. Noel Gallagher (Oasis)
Always thought of as underated, but any decent Oasis fan always respected where the initial emphasis for what at one time was the best band on the planet lay, wonderfully melodic at times.
