Daltrey was way too low IMO.

And no Jon Anderson?  GMAFB.

I understand very well why Bob Dylan is so high up. His voice is not of the same quality as Freddie Mercury or Aretha Franklin, but he has one of the most special and influencial voices ever. I love to sing while listening to music, but with Dylan it's almost impossible. Same with Thom Yorke. They both add so much to the music.

I'm glad Lou Reed made it on to the list. I can't get enough of the way he sings!

Seriously, everyone you mentioned is amazing.  "Heroin" ought to be on the next space probe we send out--hell, the whole VU discography should be.

I have to admit I started listening to(early) Lou Reed a few weeks ago (part of why I'm so crazy about him right now), so I hadn't heard Heroin. I'm listening to it right now, can't wait to listen to the entire album! Who's VU?

I'm going mental over Andy's Chest right now. Anyone who is not convinced Reed is an AWESOME singer should listen to it!

The Velvet Underground! 

Who's playing the version of "Heroin" you're listening to?

Lou Reed! I supposed that was who you were talking about since I mentioned him, so I youtubed it. :) Dunno if it's the same song, but it was good. I'll check out Velvet Underground tomorrow as an excuse not to read for my exams.

You know Lou Reed was the singer for the Velvet Underground, right?

As I mentioned, I downloaded Lou Reed a few (two) weeks ago....  Still, a little embarrassing I didn't know that.

That's all right.  I'm actually kind of envious of you.  You are about to discover the music of the Velvet Underground.  And that's quite an experience.

Here's a favorite newer musician--Soltero.  He's a guy who's been very influenced by most of the musicians you've mentioned, particularly Neil Young and Bob Dylan, and he's a skeptic.

Buy his music, and I promise you'll be glad you did.

Too bad they missed two of the greats: Rob Halford and Ronnie James Dio.  Even if you're not into heavy metal, you have to admit those two have amazing pipes. 

For that matter, where's Ann Wilson?

These folk's voices are forces of nature.

Good question, she has an amazing voice!
