3. Rob Rock
2. Robert Plant
1. Rob Halford

Apparently, I really like singers named "Rob" for some reason. scratch

I was going to mention Robert Plant but for some reason I never quite think of Zep as metal. Love the band though and I suppose you could make the same argument about Deep Purple, though to me the seem to cross into metal territory more often. I don't know you numbers four and five.

After I posted, I realized I had left Ray Gillian off.

There are lots of good ones that I could put on a list of favorites. Narrowing to the five above was difficult. I also like:

Rob Lowe
Cam Pipes
Ripper Owens
Lemmy

Cool that you said Sanctuary and not Nevermore.

I have a knee-jerk reaction against him because of the vocals on Battle Angels, but Into The Mirror Black is superb!

Missed this thread before. Here are some of my favorites that aren't as well known as most of those listed above.

Robert Lowe


Dan Swano


Devin Townsend


Dawn Crosby


Here's a bonus one:

Lisa Papineau


She's not a metal singer, nor was Pet a metal band, but her voice is sick!
