You beat me to it, but I totally agree. Roy Freaking Orbison
Also, Jeff Lynn from ELO has a pretty good voice as well.

Kinda funny, those two beautiful voices in the same band with Dylan and Petty balanced pretty well with Harrison. Traveling Wilburys was a helluva supergroup.

voice IMO for the Rock Genre. If it were for just Distinctive voice, My list would
include Steven Tyler, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Mick Jagger, JANICE
JOPLIN (Oh Hell Yeah)...........

The lead singer for Cinderella (Tom Keifer) has always been a voice I loved to
listen to in his younger days, since they released their first album. Not what
you'd call "polished vocals" but for that brand of Rock music in that era (80s)
you could feel the emotions in his voice, and he left nothing on the stage
everytime they played. It eventually cost him his voice, but he gave it up
doing what he loved doing.
I love Cinderella. There may not be a bigger fan on this board of Cinderella during their heyday than me. They definitely had a blues side to them. Loved Tom Keifer's voice. Tom had lots of problems with his voice but even when he wasn't singing in his high pitched voice, he still had a good voice. I did get to see them in the early 90s in Raleigh but not during their prime. Still a great concert.

I can't honestly say Tom Keifer is the greatest rock voice but I always loved him in Cinderella.

he was with them. On stage live anyways. He just didn't have that same "Punch"
that he had with Montrose, or when he toured as a solo artist.
Love Sammy Hagar's voice as well. And yeah, there is always the Van Halen debate. But the music and lyrics with Sammy as lead made Van Halen so much better than with DLR. Just my preference in music but VH had a harder sound under Sammy and I think that came from him. I loved that. Dude could sing and always liked his voice.

All the singers listed so far are/were great, but the best voice belonged to Freddie.

A lot of my faves have already been mentioned. Though he is not my favorite, Axl Rose does have that seven-octave range.
