Has anyone ever noticed that a lot of male singers sound as if they have nasal congestion or a cold when they sing?

These artists are great, don't get me wrong. But it just dawned on me recently when listening to these musicians such as Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Tom Petty, and even Neil Finn sound as if they have a cold or some kind of nasal congestion/closed throat when they sing. Does anyone else hear this... show more These artists are great, don't get me wrong.
