    Most people disregard the Rolling Stone lists because of how messed up the placements are, but this list seems better than most.

    Rolling Stone has been primary to practice countless the most biased and ridiculous lists ever considered. I under no circumstances problem to study them except i favor a sturdy snort. Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles are both very gifted, yet they're some distance from the suitable 2 spots. i will't have self assurance both honestly one of them beat out Elvis Presley, now to not indicate many others. that is ridiculous how extreme up Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan were positioned. they're both undesirable singers. i will recognize their outcome on rock n' roll, yet they have dreadful voices. the shown reality that Bjork is even in this record ought to wreck Rolling Stone's credibility (in the adventure that they nonetheless have any). EDIT: the suitable one hundred Guitarists record became an complete disaster.

    I think Freddie Mercury is way to low at 18...

    Mick Jagger is a better singer than Freddie Mercury, good one

    when I skim through it I think the list isn't based on the singers ability to actually "sing". If it was Bob Dylan wouldn't be on the list (sorry Dylan fans).

    real bad list

    Iggy Pop???

    Annie Lennox should be higher on the list

    Freddie should be higher on the list

    I am thinking of how good their voices are compared to the others.
