And where is Frank Sinatra in that hundred? Nowhere.

I scanned pretty quickly, but I find it hard to believe that Billy Joel got a by-line but not a place, and that Art Garfunkel was on the list, when Paul Simon was the more talented of that duo.

Sems they don't know the difference between entertainer and singer. I love Dylan, but there's no way he's a great singer. Jackie Wilson, Dion, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbson, and Elvis could all be in the top ten. And where's Howard Kaylen (sp?)? You know, the lead singer of the Turtles. Paul McCartney is another great voice that should be highly placed.

Oops! I see Elvis is #3. I can live with that. McCartney is 11. As for Sinatra and the like, I think this list is supposed to be for rock singers only.
