Lists are pretty pointless, but you're being kind by giving Axl the tenth spot.  I could come up with ten more singers that deserve that position (if not a higher one).

I wasn't sure if the headline meant that Freddie Mercury achieved second spot in a great singer poll, or one of Freddie's number 2's had made it onto the poll.  Frankly, I would rather listen to one of Freddie's number 2's than Axl Rose.


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

 Yeah, I see your point. But to redeem myself, I too feel lists are pretty pointless. It´s more about what you like and the emotional attachments you might have to a artist or a band. And on that note, 10th place could just as easily belong to Lemmy or Zakk Wylde...

I would put steve tyler and Jon Bon Jovi in the top 10 both have fantastic singing voices

Freddie will always be number one for me

Axl Rose better lead singer than Freddie Mercury?  I don't think so, in actual fact I think all of those on that list are greater than Axl Rose myself
