Even if you listen to his voice on the first album, it's still rough. He sounds even rougher later on, though, because of all the smoking. But I think his voice is just naturally like that, kind of like Rod Stewart.

The only song I've found where he doesn't sound like his normal self at all is Heaven For Everyone. I don't know what was up with his voice, but it had no roughness to it at all until almost the last verse.

Roger's a smoker and a drinker, so that's why his voice sometimes sounds like it's gone through a shredder and back, but he still has it where singing's concerned and sounds great!! I just wonder if he can still hit those high notes without coughing...

He also has a kind of smokey voice when he speaks.
I love rough voices!
The Stereophonics singer's voice is one of my favourites!

No, I have no doubt that the smoking/drinking/whatever contributed to the timbre of his voice, especially in later years, but it's also that Roger's voice has a natural raspiness to it.

It's a great rock and roll voice. In fact, Roger may be the most underrated singer in popular music.

I've always thought that Roger's voice would be very well suited to do cover versions of Rod Stewart songs in concert.

He has the Rock n Roller's voice!
I like it.
When I first heard I'm in Love with My Car, I thought it was sexy.

Rog´s voice is naturally rough...I mean, it wasn´t his choice to sing the way like this...
