    Pretty much, would rather listen to Prince, Johnny Cash and the Rolling Stones over the three I mentioned but I couldn’t argue they had a bigger impact with a straight face.

    I remember a music historian ( maybe Paul Gambaccini) saying that the most influential and iconic musical acts of the 20th century were Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, Sinatra, Elvis and The Beatles. They all enjoyed massive worldwide fame and success during their respective eras.

    Lol @ this post. I personally don't even like Pearl Jam but Eddie Vedder is one of the most talented Rock vocalists of all time. You must not understand the mechanics of singing if you actually think he doesn't posses range or ability.

    If you just don't like his music and use hyperbole to get your point across, that's cool, but educate yourself if you really believe that garbage.

    I don’t think even Bob Dylan himself would consider himself a “singer”. Plus he didn’t even have a cool voice like other legends who couldn’t really “sing” like a Johnny Cash or a Tom Petty.

    I went with Elvis, Sinatra and MJ.

    Could have easily thrown Freddie Mercury, Marley and a few others in as well. Hard to choose.

    Most iconic?

    Definitely Elvis and Michael Jackson.
    Third one is a wide open debate. I vote for Mick Jagger.

    Why does he technically sound like a Billy Goat? Can you elaborate with specifics?

    What disastrous poll results, are y'all serious in here? Peace to @Gomi1977 and @superking for showing their class once again and solidifying why I consider them Sherbros. Yes, he was rolling with a GOAT level guitarist (and drummer, plus an elite bassist to boot) but Plant is the fucking man of frontmen.

    When you're pushing 60, and you can (still) do this, there's no doubt who's the f-ing GOAT!
