I am going to rate (nearly) every vocalist in my Last.FM library on two different criteria: ability to sing well and ability to sing rock music. In order of plays on my Last.FM
Ability to sing well
Ability to sing rock music well
For example, Shoeless Bill would be rated on, say, Let it Be and Helter Skelter. Paul McCartney would be rated on Yesterday and I'm Down.
Sing well is based mostly on ballads and such, whereas rock voice is based on being able to scream or something. It's hard to put into words. But if it ROCKS it will get a high score.
Some people, such as George Harrison, have never really given a ROCK performance. (Harrison's most rocktastic song was er Not Guilty)
Good examples of each are next to ratings
ALSO these ratings are when the vocalist was in their prime; I'll try to get songs from the same year
NOTE: there is a difference between singing rock songs and singing with ROCK VOCALS
