Question of the Day June 21 2002


Recommended Posts

Best in the world? Wow....

ummmmm.....as for ones I think are amazing...

1. Joni Mitchell

2. Mr. Yorke (radiohead)

2. Garcia (of course)

and this one is out of the blue but

4. Shannon Hoon (Blind Melon)

I have to say these people are four of my favorites because all of them sing/sang with soul and like they put their hearts into it.

Tough question. I'm going to have to stick to my favorites, because they are favorites for a reason. Maybe not necessarily the best world renowned vocals, but their vocals resonate in my brain the right way:

A) Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Poe

B) Jim Morisson, Shannon Hoon (Blind Melon)

Living: James Taylor

Not-Living: Sandy Denny (ex-Fairport Convention)

James Taylor fucking kills me. "Mud Slide Slim and The Blue Horizon" (1972) is a desert-island disc for me. His voice could bring world peace if everyone would just pay attention....

As for Sandy Denny, her voice was pure and clear and her handling of melody unparalleled to my ears. Her singing on Fairport Convention albums like "Liege and Lief" and "Unhalfbricking" sends shivers up and down my spine. And her solo stuff, while spottier then her tenure with Fairport, yielded at least one classic rock/folk album: "North Star Grassman and The Raven".

Nice stuff.

The responses are 95% of the fun!

My response is 100% reversed from the order of the QOD...

B) passed on... he'll always make me close my eyes and wish for a good high...James Douglas Morrison

A) living... I dunno, Kid Rock? Slim Shady? How 'bout Van Morrison, now there is a completely silken voice (ya know, silk with a little bit of a gravel cover, not unlike Mr. Waits)

I'm sure I'll change my mind a little later in the thread... but what the hell!

A) Tommy Chong & Warren Haynes

B) Pigpen & Brent Mydland

(we are talking duets, right?)

But in all honesty, I have 100%-ly agree with Treyter on many occasions regarding Jerry Garcia (its all about those '94 Stella Blues, you know, the end part) and Thommy Yorke.

Those 2 singers hit me in the "kitty boo-boo fuck" more than any other ever has.
