Van Morrison - he has written some of the best love songs!

Van Morrison
P.S. I have to add Paul Rodgers to the list, Free, Bad Company, The Law, The Firm, some fine solo albums - Cut Loose and Muddy Water Blues, and have you checked out Queen - Return of the Champions?

i love the raspy voices, the best of which is probably tom keifer of cinderella, then ville laihala (sentenced), axl rose etc and also the deep drowning vocals eg jp of charon
Hmm, Maynard James Keenan from Tool I guess. He has haunting vocals. Send shivers up my spine. Also, Chino Moreno from Deftones, never fails to impress me

Joey Ramone is a much better singer than he's given credit for.

Voices, i.e. they could sing the want ads (one of them did, in fact) and I'd still love it:

John Doe (plus he'll stare right into your eyes if you're in the front row)
Linda Thompson
George Jones
Lucinda Williams
Patsy Cline
Chuck D. (amazing power and discipline)
Jonathan Richman
Paul Westerberg
Patti Smith
Freddie Mercury, the best frontman ever
Lisa Kakula (sp?)
Bon Scott
Marianne Faithfull
Rachel Nagy

o yea
Steve Marriot
how I loved him
how great was HE!
I wanted to be able to sing just like him
and often I was able too least I thought so

yea Joey Ramone never got his due props while alive or even now
so they named a street after him
thats all wonderful but the guy was dead
for some reason I like ENGLISH singers better or DID
forget Joss Stone and all the crap
Im talking in that golden era
those increible groups
o my fucking god
pure heaven

but I love JIMI HENDRIX so much
singinging anythinh
Jimi where ever u are if u are
god dam it
u know you are loved
sincerly loved and missed
not flavor of the month love
forever loved
never saw it

he was the geek boy in Forset hills High School
do you know how amazingly wonderful that would of been for him
though DeeDee would of been pissed and wanted a street of his own
i loved hids voice
he was really into british rock and faked a british accent
it was so rediculous
that it was so perfect so good

ooh ya
god that killed me I fell off my chair

Among female singers, I like:
Amelia Fletcher (Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research, Tender Trap) has a voice that makes me totally giddy...not technically a great singer, but very endearing. Plus she's an indy pop goddess!
Tracey Thorn (Everything But the Girl)
Sarah Shannon (Velocity Girl)
Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins)

Ok, I know this is a rock forum, but whenever I'm asked this question I have to blurt my all-time favorite. Ella Fitzgerald. I know she really doesn't fit the theme, but I just had to get it out there.

As for rock vocalists (in no particular order, but love them all):
Shawn Smith
Jon Anderson (Yes)
Joe Lynn Turner
Tony Harnell
Geoff Tate
Michael McDonald

I dunno. The list could easily change in 30 seconds for me. I like so many. That's a few though. :)
