Greatest Singer of All Time
« see full list
Robert Plant had a true quality of Rock in his voice, like he sung Rock itself. He could sound crazy, beautiful, disturbed... whatever he needed to fit the song, and the passion he sung with is unbeatable. Certainly the greatest singer in the Rock Genre and probably the greatest vocalist of all time.
It's really sad that Plant didn't get on the top ten...
he is by far the greatest rock and roll singer of all time, and will always be emulated, but never surpassed. He is much too original to ever be forgotten for his contributions.
I think that Robert Plant is good but still he has a good band to follow him, jimmy page and john bonham, but still Led Zeppelin is the best band of all time
Many people judge a voice according to its range an power, but I think Robert Plant was much more than just a good screamer like many rock heroes of his time. Robert Plant was an artist: he sang from his heart and he could make you feel every word and every sound in his songs. Every time he performed a song, he made that song different and unique; he could give it other meanings and, while he was singing, he also became an actor interpreting the role of the song: you could see on his face and in his gestures the pain of loss in "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You", the sensuality in "Whole Lotta Love", the melancholy of "Going to California", the pride of the warrior in "Immigrant Song".
I've heard people saying they preferred Plant's studio work because it was more accurate. I personally cannot listen to the album versions of the songs anymore. For me, the real Robert Plant, the artist, can be found only in his live performances. With him, the songs are not only "live", they become "alive" and full of emotion.
He has the most incredible and unique voice. Many have tried to imitate him, but no one really managed by now. Even if you could hit his notes, you still wouldn't be able to copy that soul touch in his voice. He is also such a good lyricist. And let's not forget, because it is important for show-business, when he was in his 20s, Robert Plant was the most beautiful young man you could ever dream of... Just search for any video with Led Zeppelin, and you'll see what I mean.
Why isn't he in top 5 at least? He surely deserves it. The man can sing in so many styles: hard rock, blues, rock-and-roll (Elvis' style), folk, coutry, pop, reggae, traditional Arabic. He changes his voice to fit every song and he can express all the emotions you can think of. Yeah, he was the only singer of Led Zeppelin, that guy who used to "talk" to Jimmy Page's guitar. And he did that so well, that sometimes you almost couldn't tell which was the instrument and which was the human voice.
It's hard to say... Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury, or my favourites Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke and Eddie Vedder... what to choose? I choose Robert Plant. He has every specific abilities than the other ones... a wide vocal range and control, versatility and it was also a great musician, but the difference is his voice is the rarest voice I've ever heard. No one dream to sing like he did and fortunately still does.
A Portuguese Fan(sorry my english)
Plant is the picture you see when you look up "frontman". Every pore of his body sings in harmony when he is on stage... Even to this day, old and wrinkled he still takes the stage and is NOTHING but Superb. So don't take my word for it, head to your favorite music store and pick out Zeppelin IV and then over to Plant's "sixty six to Timbuktu" you wont be disappointed.
Robert Plant belongs in the top two or three of any list of great singers. Extraordinarily powerful voice with tremendous range. Probably, along with Elvis, the most emulated singer in the history of rock and roll. It did'nt hurt that he was in rock's greatest band, Led Zeppelin.
What go listin to stairway to heaven the part after the solo
It's amazing he is the best singer ever if you still not believing
He deserve to be number 1 go watch on YouTube
Seriously Celine Dion Whitney Houston Jared Leto please vote to put an end to this joke
Sorry but all the led zeppelin cover bands are terrible. There is a reason for this and part of it is that's the drummer can't keep up with bonham and the bassist can't do the bluesy rock funk of JPJ and that the guitarist can't do all the notes, but its mainly because of robert plant, he is a god
To put Plant below the top 3 is just embarrassing. He is hands down the best rock & roll singer of all time. He could sing the hard blues rock like in "how many more times" & he could sing a soft sweet song like "going to California". It's a shame he's number 17. He should be number one.
With a wide vocal range and great control over his voice, Robert Plant is no doubt the greatest male vocalist ever. He can be loud when he want, like in Dazed and Confused, or he can be soft like an angel in Stairway to Heaven. A true legend among rock stars.
Why is this not number 1?! Robert Plant has the most beautiful singing voice to bless this Earth. Sure, not everyone's a classic rock fan (another problem with this world), but nonetheless, he has a beautiful voice that moves your entire person withe emotions
What has become of people nowadays? You put Madonna, MJ, Sarah Brightman etc. In Top 10. Do you have any idea about greats of music. Well, Zeppelin is one and Robert Plant is truly the best singer in rock history and easily among top 3 in music history.
Loved by millions upon millions. Known the world over. He single handedly supercharged the world of the Blues, and set the stage for Heavy Metal. The band Led Zepplin is the ultimate in Hard Rock.
I think the success of led zeppelin was by all the members of the group, but he, with his strange electric voice gave a really beautiful sound to every song... I'm a 15 old Italian boy sorry for the grammar!
This guy is amazing! The best voice. The best music. I know Axl Rose was inspired by Robert Plant. They are at the top of my list. The best voices in Heavy Metal. The best singers ever. LONG LIVE ROCK N ROLL
for my grand greatest surprise!!! he should be no.1. if anybody else deserves to vie with him, its only freddie mercury and nobody else on the face of this holy earth
I am ashamed that Celine Dion is above Robert Plant...
Yet again though, I am ashamed that anybody is above Robert Plant. He is absolute perfection, and Led Zeppelin is the epitome of classic rock.
How is he not in the top ten at least if not the top five? Listen to some of his really old stuff or watch some old Led Zep videos (like 1969 old) and tell me there is better rock singer out there.
Has to be in the top 5. The most identifiable and definitely the most imitated voice in rock history. While others have tried to follow, they were left sounding like cackling chickens.
Chester Bennington and Bill Kaulitz higher than Plant? This is a funny popularity contest for 10 - 15 years old kids, not a true vocal skill contest.
Robert plant has a unique voice, nobody else can sing like him therefore he should be in the top ten, Plant is a machine, both singing ability and lyric ability, put him in the top ten!
How is this man not in the top three at least, if not in first. This man has the whole package... The voice, the look, the charisma... What else is needed a fake nose?
