It's not that I don't think Paul and John or Mick & Ian aren't great singers, but I'm talking spine tingling vocals, which usually include great falsettos and passion when they perform.
I'll always love Ozzy, Dio, Phil et alii, but..............Am I forgetting anyone?????
Honorable mentions
Eddie Vetter
Billy Corgan &
Jim Morrison

I'M STUNNED AT THE VOTE OFF!!!!


In case none of you knew, I've been watching Ameican Idol as of this season.
I am also traumatised that the American people voted Michael Johns off of Idol.
He was fantastic. He has a great voice, presence and looks. He certainly wasn't better than Kristy, Syesha, Brooke or Jason.
Who were these people voting for Kristy, Syesha and Brooke? It doesn't matter though, because he'll be the one with the big singing career while they're still are doing their lounge lizard/cruise ship performances.
I was looking forward to seeing his next performance.
Here he is in great form.

I LOVE THIS GUY




His words are proudly spoken. I love him.

"Radical Islam has seen us for what we are, a soft touch. It sees that political correctness is like a drug that we just can't stop injecting, even though we know it's going to kill us. And they're taking full advantage of that. Turning our sense of fairness against us, and making us despise ourselves for one of our best qualities. And any concession made will be seen as a sign of weakness to be exploited further, because there is no dialogue with radical Islam. It doesn't want to be agreed with. It wants to be obeyed. It thinks it has the God-given right, aptly enough, to make the rules, not just for Muslims, but for everyone."

Is my favorite part.
