Favorite underrated vocalists

I love a band with a good ballsy singer. Here's some of my favorites.

Ray Gillen is probably my favorite rock singer. Unfortunately he died in 93. I think instead of vocal cords, he just had a big hairy ballsack in his throat. Badlands were somehow lumped in with the 'hair metal' bands of the 80's. They deserved much better. Jake E. Lee is on guitar.

Ray Alder's another favorite. Sings for Fates Warning and his side project Engine. He's a great prog-metal singer, way better than James LaBrie IMHO.

Ian Astbury is awesome. Can't tell what the hell he's singing but he's got a great voice.

Most 80's 'new wave' bands weren't known for great vocalists, but Ian McCulloch of Echo and the Bunnymen was a very versatile exception.

Show some more. No cookie monster please!

I agree with you that Ian Astbury has incredible singing capabilities. One of my more favorites from current rock is Josey Scott from Saliva. I'm sure I will think of more later.

edit - Yep, I knew I would think of someone else.

Dallas Smith from Default, here's a couple of songs to show range.

Doesn't get much smoother than Sam Cooke:

Except maybe Dean Martin.
