    Robert Fleishman/Mark Slaughter in the Vinnie Vincent Invasion.

    The original demos with Vinnie singing were (vocally) better even if the drums and bass weren't as good.

    The GRATEFUL DEAD!!!! Their singing is just terrible. To top it off, at one point they even brought a female singer in to try and improve things...and it only sounded WORSE!

    Whether you like Robert Plant or not, (for the record, I'm not a fan of some of his vocal styling, especially the higher register antics), nonetheless, this is rock & roll, not a librarian's recital. Bombast has been there since it's '50's inception. Plant jokularly referred to his Zep era self, as Percy
    ...It's been a long time since he mock and rolled

    Jagger and Plant are preposterous? What the hell is going wrong in England these days? Who's next on that list, Freddie Mercury and Steven Tyler?

    Really? putting down fellow musicians?

    Isn't there a rule about hate discussion?

    Where's that snitch button........ oh yeah, right here!

    I can't stand the whining and moaning high register stuff of RP either. But I like Zep.

    Well, seems to me pretty much the whole point of this thread is putting down fellow musicians.

    FWIW, I didn't think @kelnet posted anything that put anyone down. More like asking what would put someone in a mood to rip on well-known singers.

    Maybe I missed something...

    I know, right? Putting down Robert Plant and Mick Jagger is just wrong.
